Estimated read time: 1'

The Spanish Ministry of Transport and Sustainable Mobility has allocated €3.5 million (37.7 million dirhams) to improve safety and pedestrian traffic on the Ceuta access road leading to the Moroccan border.

According to a press release from the Government Delegation quoted by EFE news agency, the chosen stretch of road experiences «a number of safety concerns and high traffic volume (13,200 vehicles/day)». Traffic levels increase significantly during summer months due to Operation Marhaba, which facilitates the movement of people between Spain and Morocco.

The improvement project aims to enhance traffic flow and safety by creating «two lanes towards the border and one lane in the opposite direction, all 3 meters wide». Additionally, the project will include «a redesign of the entire road cross-section, construction of 1.5 to 2 meter wide sidewalks on both sides, provision of street furniture, creation of ramps and access steps, and road surface rehabilitation».

This project is funded through the European Union's Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, supported by NextGeneration EU.
