Lagos unveils €1 million road network revamp

Lagos Council has unveiled a €1 million plan to renovate dozens of roads in the borough by the end of April.

Works will include repaving roads, improving drainage systems and ultimately making streets “safer, more accessible and more comfortable” to use.

The first renovations started on Monday (January 25) on Avenida da República in the heart of Lagos between the Lidl supermarket and the so-called ‘Rotunda das Cadeiras’ roundabout and are expected to last until Friday, when works will begin on Rua D. Vasco da Gama near Lagos Town Hall. Traffic will be restricted on both roads throughout the course of the revamp works.

In February, a series of road improvements will also be taking place in Espiche, Portelas, Almádena and Barão de São João (see list below).

While it is aware of the “inconvenience the works may cause”, the council hopes citizens and visitors will be “understanding as the works will benefit the whole community”.

• Avenida da República (Lagos) – January 25-29
