IC1 road users demand ‘urgent roadworks’

Anyone who has used the IC1 national road from Lisbon to the Algarve and vice-versa will have seen the enormous humps on the verges between Grândola and Alcácer do Sal. Guaranteed to send any car or motorbike flying if accidentally hit or collided into, road users are now demanding a government audience to see roadworks begin “as a matter of urgency”, saying the status quo is a “daily attack on drivers”.

Demands for better road surface conditions have been ongoing for many years, writes tabloid Correio da Manhã, and seriously compromise road safety.
