The road connecting the mountain villages of El Cercado and Chipude will be closed until Friday December 5th 2014, and again from Tuesday Dec. 9th until Friday Dec. 12th during daytime hours due to road works and resurfacing. At night it will be open to all traffic. A signposted detour through the national park is available. The main bus line which connects Valle Gran Rey with the capital San Sebastian de La Gomera usually passes through these villages but will have to use the detour as well. Intending passengers will be brought from the two villages and all the bus stops along this road to the nearest alternative bus stop by a shuttle service when the road is closed.
