Benissa beaches lighten up

Costa Levante News - - NEWS - By Jo Pugh

THE IN­STAL­LA­TION of a new light­ing sys­tem has re­cently been com­pleted in the coastal area of Benissa, specif­i­cally in La Fustera and Al­tamira.

The works, which had a bud­get of €32,768, were funded by a grant from Ali­cante provin­cial coun­cil un­der the pro­gramme of fi­nan­cially sus­tain­able in­vest­ments. They rep­re­sent an im­por­tant im­prove­ment, both in light­ing qual­ity and en­ergy ef­fi­ciency, by us­ing the lat­est LED tech­nol­ogy.

With the new light­ing, Benissa coun­cil ex­pects to see con­sid­er­able re­duc­tions in their re­spec­tive en­ergy bills. “These in­vest­ments re­spond to de­mands that we have de­tected are nec­es­sary in light­ing, as­phalt­ing and gen­eral ser­vices. At the same time a ser­vice is of­fered which is much more in line with the needs men­tioned by the res­i­dents of the af­fected area in the open meet­ings we have held” said Man­ual Juan, coun­cil­lor for ur­ban plan­ning.

In the words of Xavi Tro, re­spon­si­ble for Works and Ser­vices, “This ac­tion, to­gether with oth­ers re­cently made around the coastal area, al­low us to re­duce the gap be­tween this area and the ur­ban area of the town, mak­ing in­vest­ments where de­served and too often for­got­ten, un­justly, by pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ments” added Xavi Tro, coun­cil­lor for works and ser­vices.
