Orihuela council has improved an extra one point three million euro of expenditure, which will mean that the long-delayed project to stop rockslides onto the Paseo de Cabo Roig at Cala Capitán can finally be advertised.
A previous tender award for work which should have been done this year has been scrapped, as reported previously by The Courier, with the project quoted at a lower figure of 190 thousand euro. Last month, Partido Popular spokesman, Rafael Almagro, said that financial arrangements for the project had changed, and so the tendering process will have to begin again.
The extra money will also be used on 650 thousand euro of improvements to the Orihuela Costa’s roads and pavements, as well as funding Orihuela City’s new-look bull ring. Almagro previously stated that council technicians will work out which areas of the Orihuela Costa need to be prioritised for road and pavement enhancements.
