Neighbourhood gathering to discuss road work on Sant Ferran street

cartell reunio veins st ferran1The Formentera Council's infrastructure office has convened a informational meeting to apprise Sant Ferran residents of looming upgrades on avinguda Joan Castelló i Guasch. The gathering is scheduled for Tuesday December 18 at 8.00pm in the Sant Ferran seniors' centre (Centre Social i de Majors).

The road work was outlined in the run-up to a similar meeting in 2017, when islanders were given a booklet containing a road map for the project. Tuesday's meeting will be primarily focused on explaining the particulars of the work set to take place.

Avinguda Joan Castelló i Guasch upgrades

The planned upgrades on the avinguda (“avenue”) known as Joan Castelló i Guasch covers a range of pavement surface improvements as well as the undergrounding of services like sanitation, drinking water, telephone, electricity and street lights.

Infrastructure councillor Rafael González promised the upgrades would bear similarities to work last winter on two local streets, or carrers: Guillem de Montgrí and València. Said the councillor, “At the time we did away with architectural barriers, expanded pedestrian walkways and implemented metred parking. This new project represents a continuation of the previous upgrades so that the entire town enjoys the same conditions”. The proposal also incorporates a dedicated bike lane along the length of the road and various electric-vehicle recharge points.

Engineers plan to carry out the project in two parts, one this winter and one next. The four-month deadline of the first portion is intended to ensure completion in time for the 2019 tourist season.
