Nine Gigantic Cranes, Almeida’s Solution To Avoid Traffic Jams In Madrid

José Luis Martínez Almeida, mayor of Madrid, is clear about how to decongest the continuous and kilometric traffic jams that occur in Madrid, even more so after the episodes experienced during these days ago where the capital registered the highest retention of the last 18 months.

“They have been monumental traffic jams, it is not necessary to put hot cloths; I apologize on behalf of the City Council for them,” said the mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez Almeida, who attributed these traffic jams to “a series of accidents in nerve centers.”

There are several factors that have triggered these long traffic jams on the M30 in recent weeks, such as the return to offices, schools and universities, the fear of using public transport due to the risk of contagion of covid and, above all , the works and the Asphalt operation.

To try to solve these uncomfortable problems, Almeida has proposed the installation of “nine gigantic cranes in nerve centers to unblock an accident, facilitating the withdrawal of vehicles, improving procedures with mobility agents”. Even so, the mayor is committed to “continuing to favor the use of public transport, with incentive measures” as well as “improving reaction capacity.”

These cranes will be located in five locations during the morning rush hour
The installation of these cranes is not something new, since this measure has been implemented on days of heavy rain. What will change is that they will now be ready to use from Monday to Friday.

As confirmed by Almeida, these cranes will be located in five places during the morning rush hour in: nodes Norte and Manoteras, Ventas, Méndez Álvaro and San Pol de Mar; and at four other points coinciding with the afternoon rush hour: Puerta de Hierro, connection with the A-3, Ventas and Méndez Álvaro.
