New Gan­dia walk­way closed

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

A brand-new bridge con­nect­ing Gan­dia port with the beach es­planade has al­ready had to be shut due to a de­fect in the street lights, mak­ing it un­safe overnight.

The walk­way, cost­ing €1.3 mil­lion, only opened at the end of May, and will now have to re­main closed un­til late July for re­pairs.

Ac­cord­ing to the coun­cil and the port au­thor­ity, the elec­tri­cal wiring – which runs for 'sev­eral hun­dred me­tres' and has around 400 con­nec­tions – is not strong enough to guarantee 'proper light­ing'.

As soon as the fault was dis­cov­ered, the bridge was shut overnight, but once the works start it will be closed al­to­gether.
