THE FIRST stage of power line works in the Islas Marianas area are complete.
The mayor of Infrastructures, Jose Carlos Martin announced Endesa will start the second stage of works next month.
The project will see the company digging up roads to bury power cables. Councillor Martin explained,”this second phase will consist of adapting the high voltage line. The existing one will be opened up and its wiring replaced.” He added,”once finished, we will begin the third phase of renovating the roundabout.”
The council came to a financial agreement with Endesa to fund the works following months of uncertainty. Councillor Martin explained, “our first priority was to try to solve the bad relations between the council and the company because of the confrontations between the former leaders of the PP (Partido Popular) who left the whole project at a standstill.”He added, “resuming the talks in a cordial manner has allowed us in turn to arrive at an understanding over the works, as well as a saving on the initial amount the company want to diverted the high voltage line.”
