Access to the dam and reservoir

There are three ways to reach the reservoir, all from the A-340 main road on the stretch between Librilla and Alhama de Murcia.

Access to the reservoir facilities and the crest access road is included as an integral part of the construction. This road passes the regulating basin and the spillway, and also leads to the upper berm and the side ventilation conduit for the perimeter gallery. Also there is a road which leads to the administrative centre, the pump house, the gallery and the valve-house in the scour outlet.
