‘LA REGIA’ FOOTBRIDGE NEARS COMPLETION

3 min read

The main structure will be fitted later this week

La Regia residents can’t but fail to have noticed the work that has been going on for the last 4 weeks on the construction of the new footbridge at km 50 on the N332, particularly as it nears completion.

At a cost of 231,900 euro the bridge has been a long time demand of residents residing on the inland side of the road at the southern end of ‘Cabo Roig strip’ who complain of isolation.

There have been regular protests at the long, but necessary, journeys needing to be made on foot in order to take advantage of the basic facilities available on the coastal side of the road, especially from the sick or injured, many of them in advancing years, when needing to use the services at the local medical centre.

For many the installation of the new footbridge will cut their journey distance by about a mile.

The project is being managed by Councillor for the Coast, Martina Scheurer who has long promised the new footbridge. In November she outlined the timetable for its installation which is pretty much on schedule. With the arrival on Monday of the final pieces of the overhead bridge the installation could be completed by the end of this week.

The main superstructure itself was erected in a single section, so as to avoid the lengthy process of assembly on the La Regia site.

Over the last three months engineers have built and installed the pillars that will hold and support the bridge in place. When all the elements are in place for the final assembly a large crane will be brought in to handle themost complicated aspect of the operation, something that is likely to be performed overnight so as to avoid major disruption and traffic jams.
