These works begin tomorrow night and on Sunday, also at night, they will do so in Ricardo Bayona street
The asphalting of Nicaragua Avenue completes the works to improve mobility and pedestrian safety
The actions to improve mobility and safe transit for schoolchildren at the junction of Ricardo Bayona street with Nicaragua avenue will end in the next few days with the paving work on both roads, thus putting the endpoint to an action whose objective has been to guarantee the safety of schoolchildren who go to schools in the area and improve the mobility of vehicles. These works will be carried out at night to cause the least possible inconvenience
In this way, as explained by the Councilor for Mobility, José Ramón González de Zárate, on the night from Thursday to Friday the asphalting of Nicaragua Avenue will be undertaken in the section that runs from Azucenas street to Ricardo Bayona.
"The works are finally coming to an end and we have managed to provide greater security in their transit to the students at the entrance and exit of the Miguel Hernández school" indicated the mayor, who explained that in this section the sidewalks and pedestrian overpasses have been created for greater safety and to reduce the speed of vehicles.
“Not only did we achieve a safe route, but we also reduced the speed of the vehicles and left a new asphalt, since the old one has very deteriorated.
Now people can go safely on the sidewalk and cars on the road at a lower speed” said González de Zárate. The speed of the vehicles is limited in this section to 10 km/h.
On the other hand, the action will continue from Sunday night to Monday with the paving of Ricardo Bayona, in the section that goes from Cuba street to Peru street, around 200 linear meters. "There are also elevated zebra crossings here, and the roundabout is finished," the councilor pointed out. González de Zárate stressed that it has been "a very important work because it is the entrance to Benidorm from the West, which has seen an increase in traffic since Beniardá avenue was cut due to the undergrounding of the road".
The works will consist of finishing the asphalting, completing the vertical and horizontal signaling, and later the placement of trees will proceed. In addition, the yellow paint that operated until now will be eliminated to suppress the provisional nature that it had until now. González de Zárate insisted that these actions are carried out now "because January is when there are fewer people in the city and the inconvenience is less."
The councilor underlined the importance of the action "in the same way as the roundabout that was built on Venezuela Avenue, which contributed significantly to improving mobility at that point and security towards Ausiàs March school. ”.
