Access to the dam and reservoir

Access to the Pliego Reservoir and Dam facilities is made from Murcia on the N-340 main road joining this town with Lorca. At Alcantarilla, the C-415 autonomous road going to Mula must be taken to the right. Before reaching this town, the turn-off to the MU-530 road, in the direction of Mula, must be taken. Near Mula, take the C-3315 and when reaching Pliego, the C-5, in the direction of Casas Nuevas. Shortly after, you will see the road for La Herreña, where you turn off and this will take you to Pliego Reservoir on the right embankment.

The dam crest is reached along an asphalted road that leaves the C-5 approximately one kilometre from the built-up area of Pliego, which is the nearest town to the reservoir.

The most important roads crossing the Pliego reservoir basin are:


- C-5, between Pliego and Casas Nuevas.
- MU-503, between Bullas and Zarzadilla de Totana.
- C-24, between Pliego and Las Águilas.
- C-6, between the MU-503 road and El Niño
