BENIDORM town hall has announced the next stage of a number of projects that included further pedestrianising of a popular area of the municipality.
More than €700,000 has been provisionally authorised for an additional 200 metres of work to pededtrianise Calle Tomás Ortuño in the old town and between Calle La Garita and Calle Los Limones. The construction company Sigma have been given several days to formalise all the paperwork to execute the works which have been valued at €728,827.72
Benidorm’s councillor for works, José Ramón González de Zárate, said at the announcement: “We will follow the same model, design and standards of the first phase of the pedestrianisation that was completed earlier this year.” He also noted that the project will no longer permit traffic along Calle San Antonio and all the surrounding areas will see a reorganisation of the traffic flow during and after the work.
It was also announced that the construction of a footbridge to link Els Tolls with the Palau d’Esports in Benidorm was also awarded to Los Serranos with a budget of €284,947.22. Work on this project is due to begin any day now and formed part of the 2017 budget for the municipality, and will provide a safer route for pedestrians between Calle Italia and the sports centre.
