Benidorm begins the tender for the improvement of mobility and accessibility on Beniardá Avenue

15 June 2022
Avenida de Beniardá.

The Local Government Board (JGL) of Benidorm City Council has approved the start of the tender for the action to improve the accessibility of Beniardá avenue, a work that will affect the section between Alfonso Puchades avenue and Relleu street and that will have a budget of 272,259.50 euros.

The work is part of the Universal Accessibility Plan for Benidorm and the Tourist Accessibility Plan, which aim to advance Benidorm in its concept of the city as a space for coexistence. The Councilor for Public Space, José Ramón González de Zárate, explained in this regard that with this type of intervention "we intend to create usable and practicable environments for all people in conditions of safety, comfort and most autonomously and naturally possible".

In this case, the works seek to improve mobility and accessibility conditions on the avenue "to guarantee the safety and comfort of pedestrians on the sidewalks of this road." An action similar to others that have been carried out on the same avenue a few months ago, such as the one that included the section between Goya and Alcalá streets. In addition, it joins other improvement works in the neighbourhood, such as those carried out in the station street within the Sustainable and Integrated Urban Development Strategy (EDUSI).

González de Zárate recalled that the City Council "has been carrying out an accessibility policy for some years to adapt urban public spaces to people with any kind of disability". For this reason, he continued, "we have implemented guidance systems, unique platforms or acoustic warnings for deafblind people at traffic lights, among other actions".

In addition, the mayor has specified that the Universal Accessibility Plan approved in 2019 "already provided for the adaptation of municipal road spaces so that they were accessible, especially for people with motor or visual disabilities", something that is also revealed in the Plan of Tourist Accessibility approved afterwards.

"That is what we are doing with all these interventions that we carry out in the streets because total accessibility and the improvement of mobility has been our main commitment," said González de Zárate, who has influenced the work in the Beniardá avenue that "the objective is to have completed the renovation of the entire avenue and its urban scene before the end of this year".

The councilman, finally, has stressed that the work will coincide in time with the work of burying the level crossing of the TRAM, "to minimize inconvenience." "We are carrying out a plan to completely cut off cars on the avenue and we will give all the details shortly when it is finished" he concluded.
