News Torrevieja News Renewal Work for Street Lights and Cobbles Approved Posted on 13th October 2018 2 min read The Local Government Board has approved the report, appointed the technician and started the dossiers corresponding to two of the subsidy lines granted by the Diputación to the town to make financially sustainable investments in infrastructure. The first project put in motion is the renovation of public lighting of partial plan 22 “Casa Grande”, for which 63,286.50 euro will be allocated. The second project is somewhat more controversial, as it includes the ripping up of cobbled streets and resurfacing them. This might not seem like it is a particular project of note, but the streets are those which were cobbled in 2010 by the then government of the Partido Popular, which immediately caused problems due to the poor quality of the work, having to be redone numerous times, and causing the streets to look like war zones in places. The work will see junctions between calle Caballero de Rodas and Ramón Gallud from Patricio Pérez to Rambla Juan Mateo and Chapaprieta, and calle Azorín from calle Ramón Gallud and Avda. de la Libertad, including resurfacing of Ramon Gallud from Gregorio Marañón to calle Apolo. For this repair work, a subsidy of 226,954.57 euro has been received. The work will begin as soon as possible as the financial structure is already in place.
