If you are a regular traveller between Alfas del Pi and Benidorm this good news is for you. Works have started on the construction of the new roundabout on the N322 with a new access road to Alfas.
As shown on the picture of the plan, the new roundabout is set away from the existing junction towards Altea. At this roundabout there will be a new road constructed with a bridge over the tram tracks, and ending with a new roundabout on the existing Alfas road. The works, I have been told, should be completed by
June. The official smiled and said they may even finish earlier.
Which ever the case it will be a welcome improvement on this junction. The traffic lights which are in place now, work fine during the day, but at one in the morning, when there is little traffic, the lights are a hinderence. The sequence of the lights is not programmed for volume of traffic but is set on a timer. You could be stuck on red waiting to turn left into Alfas, when you can see nothing coming for miles and you just sit there and wait.
There is bound to be some disruption with all this work, but by summer the traffic should be running like clockwork. Hopefully.
