Benidorm opens this Wednesday the new park-and-ride parking space on Bernat de Sarrià avenue, which will also serve the future health center
Benidorm City Council puts into service this Wednesday, January 25, the new park and ride park on Bernat de Sarrià Avenue, next to the street market. A car park "with an area of 7,067 square meters, with capacity for nearly 300 vehicles and which will also serve the future health center of Rincón de Loix", as reported today by the mayor, Toni Pérez.
The mayor recalled that "as in other parts of the city, this car park is located on a private plot that, by an agreement, the property has made available to the City Council for its adaptation as a parking." Based on the agreement signed in this case, initially, the City Council will use this land as a car park until the Ensanche Levante partial plan is developed, although the agreement can be extended if the parties so wish.
Toni Pérez explained that "in recent weeks, this site has been adapted for use as a car park, providing it with an access ford and lighting, thus improving lighting conditions in the entire area." In addition, the pedestrian band has been extended to provide greater security for pedestrians.
As the mayor remarked, "by putting this park-and-ride into service, we respond to the parking needs that already exist in the area, where there are many residents and visitors and we anticipate future a demand, marked by the new health center in Rincón de Loix”. In this regard, it has been reported that "as the public knows, the health center is going to be located on a municipal plot located next to the 'Antonio López' football fields, a land donated by the City Council that until now was enabled as a car park".
"With this new car park, we not only compensate for those places that are lost, but we are generating many more new ones to meet the demand of the future health center since the Department of Health has not considered the creation of a parking lot for the new sanitary facilities."
Toni Pérez announced that "the car park that we are opening tomorrow is the first phase of a project to create parking spaces in Rincón de Loix"; and he highlighted that "at this time, Benidorm already has more than 7,000 free parking spaces in nearly 40 park-and-rides distributed throughout the city." Some figures, he added, "attest to our commitment to a constant improvement in mobility, to give priority to pedestrians and that drivers find the maximum facilities to park their vehicle." “No other destination offers this volume of parking spaces”, he concluded.
