Consell de Formentera implements safety upgrades at Porto-salè turnout

Foto 2020 millors seguretat viariaThe Consell de Formentera has overseen changes designed to make the juncture of highway PM-820 and the carretera de Porto-salè safer. In recent years, the crossing has been the site of a disproportionate number of sometimes deadly accidents.

Upgrades:

-Solid line from the CEPSA petrol station into La Savina to prevent motorists from dangerous passing attempts.
-Reduced speed limit (from 90 km/h to 70 km/h) to prevent rear-end collisions, one of the most common accidents at this stretch of highway.
-Bigger and better signage highlighting reduced speed limit and dangerous intersection.
-Cleared vegetation near the intersection for improved visibility.

The measures put local roads on the right side of the island’s 2019 Plan for Sustainable Mobility, and are also in line with a measure which was green-lighted at local government’s February plenary session calling for urgent action at the section of highway in question.

The Consell has begun efforts to set up a radar speed trap between the CEPSA petrol station and the Porto-salè turnout, and is preparing upgrades that will make turning in and out easier for drivers.
