THE PLANNED improvement works of the Pont de Triana, at the mouth of the river Gorgos in Javea, continue to advance in their progress.
This week the provincial directorate of Costas gave its authorisation for the work, which affects an area of public sea land.
The plenary unanimously approved the permit and will transfer all documentation to the Department of Environment, who will assess whether an environmental report is needed or whether the project can proceed straight to bidding stage. The project is budgeted at €567,382 and has a 55 per cent (€312,000) grant from the Diputacion de Alicante.
The work itself will see the bridge reconstructed, extending it from 12 metres to 15 metres and repairs to the river’s structural damages after the floods of 2007.
The session also saw the winding up of the general budget for 2016 – which closes again with an underspend of almost €5million – which will be allocated to the repayment of public debt.
