New section

The works on the new section of the A-455 from Lora del Río to Constantina consisted of remodeling the road from its arrival in the town of Constantina , to the vicinity of the intersection with the regional road SE-197 that leads to Villanueva del Río y Minas , in a length of 13.6 kilometers.

The width of the road was increased from 5 meters without shoulders to a width of nine meters, with 3.5 meters in each lane and 1 meter shoulders on each side. The development includes two intersections: the first with the A-452 to access Constantina , which has been resolved with a roundabout, and the second with the SE-197 , which has been resolved in the shape of a T.

Lower Steps

In this way, we proceeded to the revegetation of the slopes, the planting of trees and shrubs in the accesses to the roads and plantations in the roundabout of Constantina, among other measures. In the same way, stone tables, wastebaskets and information panels were installed in the rest areas of the road.
