Caldereta to Airport New Road

10 companies opt for the Puerto del Rosario-La Caldereta section


The Ministry of Public Works, Transportation and Housing of the Government of the Canary Islands, directed by Sebastián Franquis, has just closed the process of collecting offers for the award of the work of the Puerto del Rosario-La Caldereta road, which has been put out to tender for an amount of 117,856,177 euros. The deadline, which ended last February 3, has concluded with a total of ten companies that choose to execute this section of work with which they respond to the agreements negotiated with the Cabildo de Fuerteventura to prioritize the necessary road infrastructure works to close the so-called North-South Axis that vertebrates the island.

The ten companies that participate in the contract are: the Temporary Business Union (UTE) Azvi SAU- Vías y Construcciones SA, Construcciones Elfidio Pérez; the Compañía General de Construcción Abaldo SA; the UTE COMSA SAU - Construcciones Sánchez Domínguez -Sando SA; the UTE COPISA Construcctora Pirenaica SA - ASFALTOS Y OBRAS TAFURIASTE SL; the UTE Dragados SA - Construction Technology and Public Works SA (TECOPSA); the UTE FCC CONSTRUCCIÓN SA-Crispal Islas SL- Transgoro SL: the company Ferrovial Agroman SA; the UTE Works with Huarte Lain SA - Construcciones Rodríguez Ramírez SA - SATOCAN SA; the company SACYR BAHILLO and the UTE Acciona Construcción SA - Lopesan, Asfaltos y construcciones SA - Obras Públicas Canarias SL

Following the process for the execution of the La Caldereta-Puerto del Rosario road section, the file of forced expropriation of the affected assets and rights has been published in the Official Gazette with a period of public information and allegations of 20 business days since its publication (on January 28), some temporarily and others partially expropriated in the municipalities of La Oliva and Puerto del Rosario.

The works will have an execution period of 54 months, once the project is awarded and the staking act is signed with the company that is awarded. The projected route is located within the second section of the Insular Axis of Fuerteventura, in a north-south direction, which connects the La Caldereta-Corralejo section, recently put into service, with the airport. The route includes a 17-kilometer highway, with two-lane roads separated by direction, 2.5 meter outer shoulders, and one meter interior roads, and five links along the road.

This route connects the link between La Caldereta and Corralejo, so the connection between the north of Fuerteventura and the airport of the island will be defined by a fast lane of four lanes when the work is finished. In addition, thanks to this variant, it will be possible to double the capacity of the ring road to Puerto del Rosario or FV-3, which contributes to significantly reduce the accident rate on the interurban roads of that island, to increase the flow of traffic and reduce the acoustic incidence in the environment.

After modifying the project to include the 17 conditions for the approval of the environmental impact statement, the archaeological site of the Tinojay Ravine will be respected, in addition to moving away from the hubaras sighting areas and the existing route in the ring road will be fully utilized to Puerto del Rosario (FV-3), without affecting the population growth of the surrounding urban areas, thus adapting to the forecasts of the Island Management Plan of the island (PIOF).

These works will have the quality control and surveillance work, so the complementary security and control contract has been tendered for an amount of 3,818,110 euros, in five annuities, which will allow the execution control, the measurement monthly of the work executed and the guarantee of compliance with the conditions of the health and safety plan. This complementary contract will have a validity coinciding with the works, of 54 months, to which two months will be added to carry out activities in the previous phase and two months for the final certification and liquidation phase.

OK, starting a book on the actual opening date. 54 months construction plus 2 months before and after for various bits equals 58 months, just short of 5 years!
So, guess how long before it gets through the next stage and work actually starts, add on the nearly five years and some Fuerte time ………...

I'm going for an opening date of 5th Feb 2027. And I think I'm being generous  Wink

2030, and that would be quicker than the first section, which I think took 13 years

The Ministry of Public Works of the Government of Canaria has raised the proposal to award the Caldereta motorway section to the Fuerteventura airport to the union of companies formed by OHL, Satocan and Construcciones Rodríguez Ramírez.

His proposal, out of the 10 submitted to the tender, has been the one with the highest score. The aforementioned companies agree to execute the 17-kilometer stretch of motorway for 92 million euros, which went out to tender for 117 million last January.

The agreement of the contracting table was adopted two weeks ago, although it had not transpired, and it details that the OHL, Satocan and Cororasa proposal obtained 97.24 points, ahead of the offers of Sacyr and Dragados-Tecopsa , who incurred a "disproportionate or abnormal" economic loss.

The start of the works is for sure once the award of the motorway is formalized, and already the Ministry of Public Works of the Government of the Canary Islands has called this Thursday, through official channels, the acts of expropriation of the owners of affected soil.

Specifically, almost 1.2 million square meters will be expropriated: 192,000 square meters in the municipality of La Oliva and one million in Puerto del Rosario. The owners of the land have been summoned between July 27 and 29 in the multi-purpose centre of El Charco, in Puerto del Rosario, and in the plenary hall of La Oliva.

Once the motorway between Corralejo and La Caldereta is put into operation, the new section to the airport continues the motorway, with a new route parallel to the FV-1 road at the height of Puerto Lajas, to connect with the ring road of Puerto del Rosario, whose lanes would double, and continue towards the airport.

"This tender responds to the agreements negotiated with the Fuerteventura Council to prioritize the road infrastructure works necessary to close the so-called North to South Axis that supports the Island," the Ministry of Public Works said last January that directed by Sebastián Franquis.

Execution time


In the bidding conditions, an execution period of 54 months was established. The motorway will have two-lane separated carriageways per direction, 2.5-meter exterior shoulders, and one-meter interior shoulders, and five links along the road.

The new motorway, by connecting with the section that connects Corralejo and Caldereta, will make it easier for the connection between the north of Fuerteventura and the airport of the Island to be defined by a four-lane motorway when the works are completed.

"Thanks to this variant, the capacity of the ring road to Puerto del Rosario will be doubled, which contributes to significantly reducing the accident rate, increasing the fluidity of the circulation and reducing the acoustic incidence in the environment," stressed Public Works.

Environmental factors

The environment service of the regional government established 17 conditions for the approval of the environmental impact statement, such as respecting the archaeological site of the Barranco de Tinojay, in addition to staying away from the Hubaras sighting areas.

Wonder why they don`t seem to put penalty clauses on contracts here if the completion date is not met. So many works on the island seem to overrun. 

Could it be if there were penalties the companies might raise the price to match the actual date as they would have to throw more people on the job to achieve the completion date? As they can overrun the completion date they can finish the work with lower costs as they don`t seem too concerned about completion dates here.

The works of the new section between Puerto del Rosario and La Caldereta will begin in the coming weeks. The joint venture formed by OHL, Construcciones Rodríguez Ramírez and Satocan will be in charge of carrying out this section of the North-South axis of the island that will improve the bypass to Puerto del Rosario and the connection to the airport, with an execution period of 54 months.

The Minister of Public Works, Transport and Housing of the Government of the Canary Islands, Sebastián Franquis, today signed the resolution awarding the joint venture formed by the companies OHL, Construcciones Rodríguez Ramírez and Satocan the work on the Puerto del Rosario highway- La Caldereta, with the corresponding variants on tracks FV-1, FV-2 and FV-3 for an amount of 92,098,903 euros and with a completion period of 54 months.

"With this award, the construction of an important road is started, in response to the agreements negotiated with the Cabildo de Fuerteventura to prioritize the road infrastructure works necessary to close the so-called North-South Axis that supports the island" , the councillor Franquis assured, "this award reaffirms the will of the Government of the Canary Islands to promote in this legislature the culmination of the aforementioned island axis."

Budget Execution

The work, whose bidding process included up to ten companies or company unions, plans to execute the assigned budget with the following annuities: for the year 2020, 6 million euros; by 2021, 18 million; for 2022 and 2023, 23 million euros in each year; and for 2024, 22,098,903 euros.

The road that will begin to run in the coming weeks, is located within the second section of the Insular Axis of Fuerteventura, in a north-south direction, which connects the La Caldereta-Corralejo section, commissioned last December, with the airport. The route includes a 17-kilometer motorway, with two-lane separated carriageways in each direction, 2.5-meter exterior shoulders, and one-meter interior shoulders, and five links along the route.

This route connects the link between La Caldereta and Corralejo, so the connection between the north of Fuerteventura and the island's airport will be defined by a four-lane motorway when the work is completed. In addition, thanks to this variant, it will be possible to double the capacity of the ring road to Puerto del Rosario or FV-3, which contributes to significantly reducing the accident rate on the interurban roads of that island, increasing the fluidity of circulation and reduce the acoustic incidence in the environment.

Environmental factors

The project now awarded scrupulously complies with the 17 conditions requested to obtain the approval of the environmental impact statement. Therefore, the works will be carried out bearing in mind that the archaeological site of the Barranco de Tinojay will be respected, in addition to moving away from the Hubaras sighting areas and making the most of the existing route in the ring road to Puerto del Rosario (FV-3 ), without affecting the population growth of the surrounding urban areas, thus adapting to the provisions of the Insular Management Plan of the island.

The problem was not lack of penalty clauses but lack of funds. The North section of the road was continually being put on hold as there were no funds to continue paying the contractors. It was the fault of the Canarian Government, not the road builders, and we could easily see the same happen with this stretch
