The Ministry of Transport, Mobility, and Urban Agenda (Mitma) formalized for 2.46 million euros (including VAT) the reorganization and improvement of access to three kilometers of the N-5 and N-521 roads on its way through Trujillo, in the province of Cáceres. Specifically, actions will be taken between kilometer points 0 and 1,650 on the N-521 and from 253,445 to 254,860 on the N-5.
The intervention includes the construction of sidewalks, mainly along the route taken by the N-5 through the municipality, as well as the improvement and expansion of existing ones. In addition, the construction of two roundabouts is included, which will reorganize the paths and serve to eliminate the intersections, the rehabilitation of the road surface, and the reorganization of the parking lots in the various sections.
The project aims to create a more accessible, inclusive, and sustainable urban environment that seeks to promote the decarbonization of urban mobility and improve air quality by promoting walking journeys that harm the use of private vehicles.
The humanization of these crossings means their next transfer to the Trujillo City Council, which will be the new person responsible for their conservation and maintenance as the owner of the roads, according to Order TMA/1160/2021, in October 8, which establishes the framework for the conclusion of agreements for the delivery of municipalities on urban roads in the state network.
The intervention is included in the Recovery, Transformation, and Resilience Plan (PRTR), within the Humanization of Journeys program, which plans to invest up to 105 million euros (excluding VAT) to promote a more sustainable, inclusive, and flexible, accessible urban environment.
