Benidorm completes the green strip of Italy street parallel to the TRAM with a new garden area
Benidorm City Council has completed the green strip of Italia street that runs parallel to the TRAM road with the creation of a new garden area, about 2,500 square meters. The councilor of Public Space, José Ramón González de Zárate, and the mayor of Environment, Mónica Gómez, explained that this space has been formed "a Mediterranean garden" with palm trees and different species of hedges, specifically oleander-nerium oleander , olivillas -teucrium fructicans- and rosemary -romero rostrata-.
The use of species "will allow this space in the future to serve as a reservoir of useful fauna, thus allowing control of insect pests that may affect other plants, concentrating at this point their treatment." The configuration of this space "makes all the sense, since in the vicinity of this plot the urban gardens are, in which, based on the principles of organic farming and to favor the useful fauna, the use is not allowed of pesticides. "
De Zárate has indicated that this new landscaped area "is completely finished" and "soon" will be opened for "the enjoyment of citizenship", once "consolidated the grass and the settlement of the lands".
The councilman of Urban Space has stressed that this area was the only one that remained pending to be prepared "to finish the pedestrian green belt and cyclist parallel to the TRAM in Els Tolls neighborhood". De Zárate recalled that "in the last legislature we started with the first sector, which links with the Colonia Madrid, making the footbridge suitable for the circulation of bicycles and accompanying the performance with a small garden area". Later, "ecological gardens were created, to which a children's area was added, and this same year a Mediterranean garden with biosaludable elements was placed at the confluence of Italia street and Andalucía avenue". A few dates ago, it was also created "a park area for dogs next to the leisure and entertainment area, and the canalization of the final stretch of Aigüera ravine was completed with the placement of albero".
Finally, he added that "we hope to have good news from the Generalitat Valenciana, giving the go-ahead to the tramway, in order to be able to make these cross-sectional gardens with the other part of the road".
