Lantania completes work on the Lucena bypass


  •  The new infrastructure, which has just been put into service, has required an investment of 8.94 million euros

Madrid, 13th July 2020. The joint venture led by Lantania has completed construction work on the Lucena (Córdoba) bypass with the A-311 for the Public Works Agency of the Regional Government of Andalusia. The new road infrastructure, which required an investment of 8.94 million euros, was put into service on 10th July.

This 4.1 km-long bypass encircles the town to the northwest and will prevent medium and long-distance traffic from passing through the centre of the town of Lucena. The infrastructure begins with a new roundabout at the intersection with the A-331 and ends at a junction with the A-318, Olivar Motorway, on its Lucena-Cabra section. The route has three structures, two overpasses that cross the roads of Priego and Zuheros and an underpass below the bypass. Of these three structures, the underpass stands out, with the most voluminous embankment of the work, which has been built to give continuity to the Oil Greenway and the livestock route of the Camino de la Torca.

The ceremony for the commissioning of the diversion was attended by the Regional Minister for Development, Infrastructure and Territorial Planning of the Regional Government of Andalusia, Marifran Carazo, the mayor of Lucena, Juan Pérez, and the delegate of the Government of the Regional Government of Andalusia in Córdoba, Antonio Repullo, among other authorities; who were accompanied by the general director of Business Development of Lantania, José Nofuentes, and the head of the Group and manager of the joint venture, Rubén Corral.
