This week, the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (Mitma) has resumed work to improve the surface of the A-2 in Segrià, between Alpicat and the Huesca border, and in Segarra, to the Cervera bypass.
Both projects involve the renovation of 25 kilometers of road and have a budget of 22 million euros.
The works at both points, which started in spring, will continue over the next four weeks with the renovation of a section of about four kilometers at the Cervera bypass in the direction of Lleida and a section of about six kilometers at the height of Alcarràs towards Barcelona.
The government's deputy delegate in Lleida, José Crespín, has stressed that these are works that are "highly requested" by citizens.
Regarding the works on the Cervera bypass, the works affect a section of about four kilometers in length between kilometer points 522,790 and 519 in the direction of Lleida.
Between March and June of this year, the Ministry already completed the improvement of the road surface in the almost nine kilometer section that includes the improvement project at this point of the A-2 towards Barcelona. Now, the work has begun in the opposite direction and the forecast is that it will last about three weeks. Mitma's investment in that section is 10.27 million euros.
The other section of the highway in which road improvement works have also begun this Monday is the one located between kilometer points 449.217 and 454.125, near Alcarràs and in the direction of Barcelona. The improvement of this section is part of the road rehabilitation project for about 17 kilometers between the border with the province of Huesca and the Lleida bypass, near Alpicat, with an investment of 12.17 million euros.
The two sections currently under construction are in addition to the improvement of the pavement on a 15-kilometer section of the A-2 between Torrefarrera and Els Alamús that the Ministry completed in July 2022. When all the works have been completed, improvements will have been made in approximately 41 kilometers of the A-2 highway route as it passes through Ponent, that is, 40% of the route, with an investment of 30.94 million euros.
