Plan for costly sculp­tures scrapped

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News -

A PLAN to in­stall two costly sculp­tures in Guardamar del Se­gura has been scrapped by the town hall.

Work is cur­rently un­der­way to re­design Avenida del País Va­len­ciano – the main street through the cen­tre of town between Plaza de los Pescadores and Calle San Jaime, at a cost of al­most €2.5 mil­lion.

The project was drawn up in 2015 by the pre­vi­ous Par­tido Pop­u­lar (PP) coun­cil.

The prin­ci­pal aim is to widen and re­place the pave­ments, and re­place and im­prove the drink­ing water sup­ply pipes and the drainage sys­tem. The sculp­tures were to be put in the plazas de Los Labradores and de Los Pescadores at a cost of €93,327.

Pub­lic works coun­cil­lor José María Hernández said the money saved is be­ing used to re­place water, san­i­ta­tion and street light­ing in­fra­struc­ture on Calles Va­len­cia and Grat­i­tud that was over 40 years old. He ar­gued that the time for grandiose con­struc­tions and wast­ing pub­lic money has passed.

The cob­bles between the parish church and Plaza de la Con­sti­tu­ción will be re­moved as part of the scheme.
