Repair work almost completed on Albir beach


LAST FRIDAY morning, the municipal workers were repainting the bike path of the Paseo de las Estrellas, one of the finishing to the mass of repair work that has taken place on Albir beach since the January storms.

The main works, explained Mayor of Beaches, Rocio Guijarro, comprise repairing the main infrastructure damaged by the surf, which exposed large rocks on the beach, caused damage in a section of the stone wall that protects el Raco de l’Albir, ripped out litter bins, footpaths and disabled access ramps.

The work of levelling and reprofiling the beach has already been completed and in the next couple of weeks before Easter, the litter bins, footpaths and disabled access ramps will be replaced. Sand will be scattered over the children’s playgrounds and the beach volleyball area.

The repair work has cost the city in excess of 100,000€ and the objective of the government team was, as Guijarro emphasised, ‘to have the beach in perfect condition as soon as possible, since Easter is just around the corner and the beach is, on the one hand, a great attraction for neighbours and visitors and on the other, a source of economic activity and wealth for the municipality.’
