TF445 Punta de Teno road reopened at long last

The Tenerife Cabildo has reopened the TF445 to Punta de Teno. As of this afternoon, the road is again open to traffic after technicians gave the go-ahead following extensive and extended works. Tenerife president Carlos Alonso thanked locals for their patience and said that the main objective was safety. The risk of rockfalls, which were a frquent danger, is estimated to have been reduced from 70% to 30%, with some four or five incidences a year now expected following heavy winds or rain. Some works are still continuing, and the carriageway still has to be tarmacked, but from now, this iconic route in the north west tip of Tenerife, with its tunnels and archways, sheer cliffs and stunning views from what seems to be the end of the world, is open to the public once again.
