Vega Baja Business Representatives Say Poor Transport Links Have a Negative Effect on the Economy
Business representatives in the Vega Baja region say that the area and the whole of Alicante Province has had a poor deal over infrastructure funding from the national government in Madrid. The Vega Baja Entrepreneurs Association (Asemvega) says it cannot understand why the area is “being punished” in the recently announced Draft State Budget.
Asemvega said in a statement that poor transport links are having a negative economic effect on the area. They reiterated previous calls for the upgrading of the CV-91 and CV-95 roads to dual carriageways, as well as the N-332 around Torrevieja (pictured). They also said they want to see the tolls scrapped on the AP-7 in the section between Los Montesinos and La Zenia, and a rail link between Alicante-Elche airport and the Vega Baja coast.
