ABSTRACT:

The Government of Spain should be driving the implementation of policies that prioritize economic growth, to create employment and promote social cohesion across the entire country.

In this context, selective investment in improving accessibility of Spanish municipalities from local highways would be a programme meeting the maximum number of required conditions:

  • Local roads are a staple of social policy.
  • Local highways still continue to present the highest accident rates.

The investment in local roads produces a tax return to the State higher than 50%.
