Work starts on new entrance for Carvoeiro  

Trees have been felled as work starts on the refurbishment of the entrance road into Carvoeiro, part of the village’s redevelopment project which began in January.

Jorge Pardal, President of Carvoeiro Parish Council, told the Algarve Resident: “The work is part of the refurbishment of the village’s roads and will include the construction of a cycle path between Lagoa and Carvoeiro.” (See the Algarve Resident edition, January 30).

He said that Lagoa Câmara decided to fell the trees because these would be severely damaged by the road works, which include the widening of the road up to four metres as well as new water drainage channels, electricity and telephone infrastructures.

The widened road into Carvoeiro will, he said, provide a safer environment for users and will take around three months to complete, with the planting of new trees being planned.

“At the moment, the road works in Carvoeiro are within the stipulated time frames and the work along Rua dos Pescadores is due to be concluded by the end of this month,” said Jorge Pardal, adding: “The road works along Rua do Barranco are then due to start in April.”
