The works of the 'Cyclist Ring' arrive at Europa avenue, that begins to be resurfaced this Sunday with material that absorbs the noise
The works of execution of the 'Levante Cycling Ring' project are now on Avenida Europa, one of the main access roads to Benidorm, which tomorrow, May 12, will begin to be resurfaced at night from Comunidad Valenciana Avenue to Mediterráneo. . The councilman of Works, José Ramón González de Zárate, has reported that "as we did on Beniardá Avenue with very good results, we will install a noise reducing asphalt that absorbs noise. In this way, we mitigate the traffic noise and reduce the noise pollution that usually occurs in the avenue of Europe. " "The result - he has indicated - is a safer avenue for drivers and pedestrians, and much more friendly for residents and traders".
As was also done on Beniardá Avenue, "the works will be carried out at night, starting at 10 pm, so as not to interfere with the traffic of the avenue". During the nine nights of the asphalting work, practically at all times there will be at least one lane of traffic in each direction, while the rest of the day will be all.
Once the resurfacing is finished, the road markings will be painted, "at which time the bike lane will be included, which, as in the rest of the city's main avenues, will run through the center of the road, and will link to the the bike lane sections of Comunidad Valenciana and Alfonso Puchades ".
De Zárate has asked for "apologies" to the public for "the inconvenience inherent in any work" and has asked for "collaboration and precaution for the duration of the work."
' Levante Cylist Ring and its connection branches' project is valued at 984,128.36 euros and financed by the Benidorm City Council and the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) within the framework of the Operational Program the Valencian Community for the period 2014-2020. Through this project 11 new kilometers of bike lanes are created, which are added to the existing cycling network, and cover the route from the roundabout of the European Community with Europe to the Hermitage of Sanz, through the old N-332. In addition, it connects with the section made by the Provincial Council of Alicante on CV-753, the road that connects with l'Albir. With these new 11 kilometers, Benidorm will reach 80 kilometers of bicycle and cycle lanes.
The 'Cyclist Ring' will run through the avenues Europa, Ametlla del Mar, Severo Ochoa, Estocolmo, Monte Carlo, Almirall Bernat de Sarriá and Comunidad Valenciana, while the connecting branches will be the streets: Ibiza, Rumanía, Marsella and Nápoles, in the that the lane model will be implemented.
Parallel to the works of the 'Cyclist Ring', but on the sidelines of this project, also from this Sunday, May 12, and also at night time are going to perform repair work on the road El Cruce, which complement the Asphalting previously done in Beniardá, Jaime I and Alfonso Puchades avenues. These repairs and asphalting will last three nights. Later, on the following nights, the roundabout of the avenue of Beniardá will be resurfaced at the height of the Red Cross post, which will gain in adherence and road safety.
