The Consultation process which lasted for seven years is complete. The tender process will shortly commence, a projected cost of €178 million.
El Perello. The Ministry of Public Works has published informative studies of the missing sections of the A-7 Auto Via, between El Perello and L’Hospitalet de l’Infant (Tarragona). Seven years after submitting the document for public consultation. Once a favourable environmental impact statement is complete the government will announce that it is ready to start the Tender process ready for construction, this new section of 21 kilometers. The Department of Public Works, estimate the cost will be about €178 million.
The favoured route appears to be on the inland side if the existing N340 instead of converting the existing route into two lanes. One of the most controversial aspects where the project passes around the village of El Perello, has finally been resolved the new root will pass to the east of town through a new tunnel to minimise the impact on the local environment.
