The Public Safety Police (PSP) is alerting drivers who park on the former 101 Regional Road between Ribeira Brava and Campanário, that they can not park on the road next Monday to facilitate the flow of Via traffic Fast that will be closed on Monday.
Monday, July 30, the Expressway (VR1) will be completely closed to traffic between Ribeira Brava and Campanário, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. As a result, the traffic will be diverted to Rua Comandante Camacho de Freitas (formerly Estrada Regional 101) from the city center or to Rua de S. Pedro.
To avoid congestion on the former Regional Road 101, PSP is placing warnings on all vehicles parked on the route between Ribeira Brava and Campanário. In the notice it can be read that it is not “allowed to park any vehicles on this route, except in places duly signaled for this purpose.”
It should be remembered that the closure of the Expressway is due to the realisation of works of “preventive sanitation of the escarpment on the western tunneling of the Ribeira Brava tunnel”. A work that will be done by the Regional Government officials.
On Monday, the expressway was also closed to ensure cleanliness and safety near the Ribeira Brava tunnel. This ban on traffic caused traffic congestion on the former Regional Road 101.
