Traffic reopened on Carretera des Ca Marí

foto 2022 ca mari obres AThe Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that today traffic has been reopened in both directions on the road to Es Ca Marí. In the last few days, resurfacing work has been carried out on the stretch of road affected by Red Eléctrica de España's installation of the third cable.

This summer, however, there will be a temporary drinking water pipe on the right side of the road towards Es Ca Marí. The exposed pipe will require the road be narrowed, and the change will be signposted and the speed limit reduced.

Work on the third cable has not been completed and will resume after the tourist season. The operations to connect Eivissa's Torrent substation with the Es Ca Marí substation on Formentera will include deployment of two 132 kilovolt (kV) links and will make it possible for Formentera to meet its electricity needs safely and stably, according to REE. The infrastructure project has a budget of €96 million.

Camí des Simonets

Further, in the days ahead the Consell de Formentera will review the state of Camí des Simonets and the other alternative routes used in recent months to access Es Ca Marí and will repair them.

Lastly, the Consell de Formentera wishes to apologise to the residents of the area for the inconvenience caused by this important work for our island.
