Benidorm will maintain the rhythm of works in summer to better adapt the city for 2022
The Councilor for Works and Public Space, José Ramón González de Zárate, has presented a program of actions for the next few days stating that "we do not interrupt any work in progress", as it is urgent for its completion and for this a planning of actions is established, always seeking the balance, between the public interest in that the works in execution are completed in the foreseen term, and the fulfillment of the objective of achieving optimal services for residents and visitors, and the desired well-being of all.
He justified this measure adopted by the Government Team, taking into account the proposals of the technical teams, in which “Benidorm is not yet one hundred percent; and it is better not to paralyze performances for two months now and have the city ready by 2022 ”.
González de Zárate celebrated the response that Spanish tourism is offering to the Benidorm destination and pointed out that with the current prospects "the winter will be better this year and these works in September-October would entail more difficulty", trusting in the possibilities of the return of British tourists.
And in this regard, he highlighted the actions that are being carried out in the Rincón de Loix, which will continue given that the British market still poses restrictions and praised "the effort of the hotels that are being renovated in that area", a question for which he pointed out "we have to continue and finish the works ”.
In the hotels section, he exemplified with the Hotel Selomar works "that it is better to execute them now that there is less incidence of school traffic in the area and now heavy vehicle access."
In the actions in the Old Town, González de Zárate pointed out that “we develop the streets in a single platform, burying pipes, and in just over a week they will be able to finish.
The councilor was clear in highlighting that "no new works will be started and we will develop those that are underway." Even so, he recalled that "there is an ordinance in force that they are to comply with, so we will study in each case the possible complaints that are presented looking for the best solution." The objective is, he concluded, "to finish as soon as possible the actions in Ponent, Spanish Armada, roundabouts, crossings, third lane of Europe and Salt de l'Aigua", connecting with the second part of the operation that includes a planning of road paving between June 28 and July 12 ”.
This calendar, indicated the councilor, "may even be speeded up" but it is scheduled to "develop the improvement of the school grounds of Salt de l'Aigua" with the paving of the roads, "now that there are no schoolchildren" the week of June 28 to July 2, developing from July 4 to 8 asphalting the third lane of Avenida de Europa "and finish the exit road" next to the Severo Ochoa-Otto de Habsburgo roundabout, "• to be carried out at night to disturb the least ”, ending on July 12 the Kennedy and Paris area with Stockholm“ which are key works for us ”, because, he specified,“ we will gain in mobility and improved traffic throughout the city ”.
