The Ministry of Public Works has presented the budget for 2017, increasing the total by 3,336 billion Euros, or 24.2% in comparison with 2016.

The budget, which the Ministry describes as realistic, aims to protect the large projects that are underway, such as the Mediterranean Corridor and the high-speed railway network. In regard to roads, a large part of the budget will be allocated to upkeep and maintenance.
