The Almanzora Toll Road or A-334 aims to convert the region of Almanzora into a strategic point between Eastern Spain, the north of Granada and Almería. This zone will be connected with the corridor that joins the A-92 with Western Andalusia. This will considerably reduce the distance and the time needed to travel through this geographical area.
This project is a public-private partnership for the construction, conservation, maintenance and operation of the Almanzora Toll Road section between Purchena and the A-7 (known as the Mediterranean Highway) which runs through Huércal-Overa (Almería). The sum invested is 145 million euros.
This toll road project has two separate road surfaces separated by a median strip of six metres, with optimum visibility conditions.
The concession term of this project is 26 years. A construction term of 32 and a half months is planned. The project will also generate a positive impact in the form of more than 2,000 jobs in the region.
