The New Road Finally Opens – Fastest Road in the North

The New Road Finally Opens – The Fastest Road in the North

A number of subscribers asked if I could publish a trip on the new road, which surprised me. So here it is. Fuerteventura roads are pretty good which makes driving in Fuerteventura a pleasure.

This road was started about 10 years ago but then seemed to stall for a number of years. It became a bit of a local joke as occasionally you might see two men working on it, one with a shovel while the other watched him. Then, about a year ago, they really started working on it properly.

Only the southbound part is open at the moment, so ok for travelling from Corralejo to Rosario, but that is something. It is the first piece of dual carriageway in the north of Fuerteventura and it has a 100kph speed limit – 10kph more than any other road in the north.

They are continuing to work on the section which runs past Tamaragua down to the first roundabout in Corralejo. Hopefully that will open before the year ends.

Having a new piece of road open in most places isn’t such a big deal but here in Fuerteventura we take our pleasures simply 😉

  1. Roads on the island are really good…

    I love the road that runs from Caletta to Antigua. Super piece of tarmac, a real drivers road you can see ahead for a good distance along most of it.

    1. There are some great roads here. It is just as well I have a diesel 4×4 rather than something quick. The mountain road from near Antigua to Tuineje, through Betancuria, is one of favourites – although it scares Sue to death.
