ABSTRACT:

This article speaks about the difficulty of road layouts in territory of complex features such as Tenerife.

Next, we consider the importance of the island landscape and the relationship established between the Road and the Territory, as the landscape is at once transformed but also made visible by the road. The challenge of integrating roads from an environmental and landscaping point of view is therefore raised, providing them with a multifunctional character, minimizing its impact and the resources consumption.

Then we present the work that the Council of Tenerife has developed to face this challenge. It is structured around the development of common criteria for its integration and application in every different phase that must be consider in the implementation of Roads: planning, functional, holding, and design criterias, presenting examples of their implementation through actions already completed in Tenerife.
