The works, which include new scuppers, will end tomorrow with painting and horizontal signage
Benidorm implements the road with no sidewalks on Calle Perú to improve accessibility and pedestrian mobility
Benidorm City Council will finish tomorrow the work of implementing the road with no sidewalks on Calle Perú, a section of about fifty meters that will improve mobility in this area, accessibility and pedestrian traffic.
The councillors of Citizenship Participation and Public Space, Ana Pellicer and José Ramón González de Zárate have travelled this morning to the site, as part of the 'A pie de calle' campaign, accompanied by the vice-president of the Neighborhood Council, Manuel Sánchez Notario, and neighbourhood residents.
The work is practically finished "in the absence of finishing painting work and horizontal signage because the civil work is already done" explained the councillor José Ramón González de Zarate.
The works have consisted of renewing the asphalting of the street section, the implementation of no sidewalks on the street and the placement of new scuppers to improve the collection of rainwater and put an end to specific problems that have occurred in episodes of heavy rain. Soon, in addition, the placement of speed reducers on the road is planned.
González de Zárate has pointed out that the road "acquires the character of a crossing, so it will have pedestrian priority and vehicles will have to circulate at a maximum speed of 10 kilometres per hour."
“This is an important action, demanded by the residents of the area, which will improve not only accessibility and pedestrian mobility but will also facilitate the passage of cars when the bus that serves the hotel located on the street is loading or unloading people” added the councilman.
