The Tenerife Cabildo has announced roadworks on the TF1 in the Playa de las Américas area. Works will start tomorrow and will be carried out on the Santa Cruz-bound carriageway to improve the surface. They will be carried out at night in order to minimise disruption, and traffic for the Playa de las Américas exit will be diverted to the San Eugenio, Los Cristianos and Guaza exits. The works are expected to last three days.
Update 8am: As of last thing last night, the fire is now officially under control.
Update 9pm: The Consorcio de Bomberos say that the fire is now stabilized. Hopefully “under control” isn’t too far away.
Update 2 September 6.30pm: I didn’t post it earlier because normally these “conatos”, or outbreaks, are put out within a couple of hours, but this one has been burning now for several hours and they haven’t announced it even as under control yet. It’s Tacoronte again, in the La Atalaya mountain area, and a fire broke out there earlier this afternoon. Helicopters and ground firefighters are tackling the blaze.
