Portimão spends €3 million to fix roads

Portimão will be fixing several roads in the next three years as part of an “ambitious €3 million investment plan”.

The town has been in desperate need of roadworks for years but “serious financial constraints” left the council powerless.

Investment now is only possible due to the cash injection it received last year via the municipal support fund (FAM).

Some roadworks have already started, said the council in a statement, referring to repairs the roundabout near Portimão Hospital.

Renovations are also planned at Urbanização da Raminha, Urbanização Vale Freire, Avenida Miguel Bombarda, Rua Coca Maravilhas, Rua Sebastião Ramires, Rua da Pedra, Rua da Olivença, Rua Serpa Pinto and Rua do Viveiro.

The council has also created an email address (repavimentar@cm-portimão.pt) for residents to write to about roadwork issues.

Other renovations to public areas are planned, including new roundabouts on Avenida São João de Deus and Estrada de Monchique as well as several improvements to green areas around the borough.
