Locals request infrastructure improvements

GRAN ALACANT: Young residents a priority for improvements Photo credit: Google Maps

REPRESENTATIVES of residents in Gran Alacant have made a series of demands to their local council to improve their neighbourhood.

They have asked the municipality of Santa Pola – which includes Gran Alacant – to look at carrying out a number of infrastructure projects on the large urbanisation, with particular emphasis on attending to the needs of the younger locals.  These include more educational centres, more efficient school transport and spaces for sporting and leisure activities.

One of the requests is for a second school since the existing one Vicenta Ruso only has a capacity for 450 students.  It is now so oversubscribed that more than 700 pupils attend.

In addition, parents and guardians are asking for an increase in the number of places available on school buses for secondary school-age children that are currently restricted to students on particular courses.  They also put a transport discount voucher for pupils relying on buses high on their list of requests that can be used with the Baile company that run the service.  At present, the municipality are already in discussions with the bus company for much needed changes to the route and timetables on the school run.

Calls are also being made for a local civic centre, music school, football field, and a skate park to save locals the journey into Santa Pola to currently enjoy such facilities.
