TF82 diversions for Chio road widening works will continue until this Friday

Updated 28 August: Carreteras says that works on the TF82 will take slightly longer than originally planned, and that the road closure will now last until this Friday, 2 September. Diversions remain in place as below, and Chio residents will continue to have access.

Original post 9 August: The Tenerife Cabildo has announced improvement works to the TF82 main road through Chio. The works will involve widening the narrow road, currently just 3.5m wide. Works are expected to last ten days and will be carried out from today between 7am and 3pm – night time works are carried out on busy roads and the TF82 is no longer so busy since the TF1 extension was opened.

Diversions will be in place because the works will require the road to be closed: the Cabildo says that it’s impossible to reduce traffic to one lane to keep the road open because it is so narrow. These diversions are>

  • Vehicles from Santiago del Teide (TF-82), Arguayo (TF-375) & El Teide (TF-38) will be diverted to the TF1;
  • Vehicles from Guía de Isora (TF-82) will be diverted to the TF1 at the TF463 junction (Playa San Juan road);
  • only residents of Chio and Titsa buses will have access between the two signal points at either end of the stretch where works are being carried out, as shown in the image above.

The Cabildo says that the works are costing €100,000 and being carried out by the private contractor designate for the western sector. Carreteras asks drivers to take particular care in the area and follow signs and signals present during the works.
