RUBBLE from the old school building in Rojales that is currently being demolished will not go to waste.
During a visit to the site, the Mayor of Rojales Antonio Pérez, accompanied by Councillor Vicente Ramírez, announced that some 2,200 cubic metres of rubble is being crushed by the contractors carrying out the demolition works with a specially adapted modern piece of equipment. This converts the raw rubble into gravel and sand, and once treated is transferred to a central storage unit from where it can be reused at a later date in the construction of roads and pathways.
The demolition of the school is due for completion at the end of this week and it’s hoped that the all-new education centre will be fully operational after Easter in 2018. The municipal officials saw at first hand the progress being made on the replacement construction which includes the gymnasium being built on the now empty plot of land which will also see other sports facilities and playing fields.
A major section of the new school building became fully functional at the beginning of this term which houses classrooms, offices, a teacher’s room, dining room and a library.
