The bid price for this action is 135,776 euros including VAT.
Its completion is scheduled for early August.

The vial for the vehicles will consist of a double layer of agglomerate, establishing the descending single direction from Juan Carlos I avenue and in both directions until the Severo Ochoa street.
With this action Cartagena Avenue will become one of the main roads of Alhama, increasing the prominence of local businesses that are in it.
