Benidorm cleans and disinfects public roads and meeting places, morning, afternoon and evening
Since the state of alarm came into force, Benidorm has doubled its efforts in cleaning and disinfecting public roads and meeting places to preserve the public health of its citizens, reaching all the roads and points of service in the morning, afternoon and evening.
Especially intense are the evening services where, with tanks and spraying, 64,000 liters of water with disinfectants are used every evening. In the morning, a vehicle supplies liquids to eight personal teams that act in detail reviewing specific places in Benidorm, while two tanks operate with 24,000 liters of disinfecting liquids. In the afternoon, four hydro teams, with pressure spraying, act on the RSU containers.
The councilor for Public Roads and Street Cleaning, José Ramón González de Zárate, stressed that "since the emergency began, the services have intensified and we take care of cleaning and disinfecting all the roads and public spaces in Benidorm" to " offer a greater health guarantee to citizens of Benidorm ”. Zárate has insisted that "all the disinfectant products used have been tested and authorized by Health department".
The points in which a greater effort is made are in the accesses to medical centers and hospitals, pharmacies, supermarkets and food stores, public buildings, tobacconists and open shops according to the specifications of Article 10 of Royal Decree 463/2020. At the same time, Raúl Mesa Pavilion, the City Hall, the facilities of the Local Police and the police vehicles that, said Zárate, "receive constant cleaning and disinfection service" are affected.
The councilor has also highlighted the action of the different municipal concessionaires that have intensified their disinfection action on lawns and trees (Aptua), sewage and rain scuppers (Hidraqua), streetlights and traffic lights (SICE), transformer centers (Iberdrola), cleaning of dependencies (OHL) and signs, canopies, infotaxis and infobuses (Impursa). In this sense, he has pointed out the exceptional work of the personnel of the Municipal Technical Services and the involvement of Avanza group in these disinfection tasks on public transport vehicles and taxis.
Finally, González de Zárate, has insisted that "this effort in cleaning and disinfection will remain at the same level during this process of health alert."
Given the increase and reinforcement in cleaning and disinfection work, the mayor Toni Pérez thanked all the companies, groups and teams involved in this work, "on behalf of the Municipal Government and Benidorm Team for the effort they are developing to maintain the highest state of sanitation in the city ”.
