Description

The project involves the construction of the road section of the Anillo Insular Tenerife” between El Tanque and Santiago del Teide. This new stretch of road will be 11.3 kilometers long and will join the north and south corridors of the island of Tenerife.

The most critical part of the work is the construction of the Erjos tunnel. This build was completed with two parallel bores; each 5.1 kilometers in length. It will run under the “Macizo de Teno” becoming the longest tunnel in the island and one of the longest road tunnels in Spain.

Responsible

It is a fundamental infrastructure to improve mobility and connectivity between the north and south of the island, as well as to alleviate traffic congestion on the TF-5 motorway in the direction of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Due to the location of the Charcas de Erjos, in the Teno Natural Park, on the natural terrain in the vicinity of the tunnels, during their excavation, seismographs will be installed to measure and monitor vibrations, minimizing the effect of the fauna and Flora.

This first-rate and sustainable infrastructure will make it possible to reduce CO2 emissions and protect the area's environmental environment.
 

Highlights

  • It will connect the towns of El Tanque and Santiago del Teide, providing a safer road with greater capacity than the current TF-82.
  • One of the longest tunnels in Spain.
