Portimão’s Estrada do Vau to be renovated

A pothole-riddled road that grants access to several popular beaches in Portimão is finally being repaired this month.

Estrada do Vau links Portimão’s Praia do Vau to the western area of Praia da Rocha, providing access to several other beaches.

As Portimão council points out, the road is used daily by thousands of people, “especially during the summer,” and has been in need of renovations “for a long time”.

The roadworks – which will involve repaving the road, installing a new drainage system and regulating parking – will cost around €71,000 and take two months to complete.

Traffic on the road will be limited during the works.
