In addition to the works on the roads, the project includes the installation of new lighting and signaling systems.
For the execution of this project, valued at 984,128.36 euros, the City Council obtained a grant of 406,664.61 euros from FEDER funds. With these new 11 kilometers, Benidorm will reach 80 kilometers of bike lanes and cycle paths.
