TORREVIEJA’S mayor José Manuel Dolón has asked for “immediate” action regarding the Dique de Poniente promenade area.

He has requested that the Acuamed company that have been contracted to renovate the area to put the security fencing back around the present building site and to continue with the work that stopped last year.

Mayor Dolón said that despite numerous telephone calls and discussions, nothing has been done to rectify the situation.  “It is vital that the promenade is fenced off properly to stop people having an accident or damaging the work or the installations of the salt industry and the desalination plant.”

It was confirmed in a local police report that they have had to remove a number of people from the construction site for their own safety.  As the mayor said: “Many people regularly use the area to go walking, swimming or fishing.”

The programme of works was interrupted last year due to a financial disagreement between Acuamed and the construction company involved.  There was an alleged corruption scandal that implicated some of the Acumed’s directors and all the ongoing projects being undertaken in Torrevieja were immediately suspended.
