Orihuela residents face a rough ride on way to beach

N-332 ACCESS: residents have to negotiate four lanes of traffic and want a bridge installed

RESIDENTS on the Orihuela Costa are calling for a pedestrian bridge to be built over the N-332 opposite Cala Mosca.

Home owners on the Alameda del Mar urbanisation and other housing developments say they dangerously cross four lanes of traffic to get to Cala Mosca and the coast side as there is no pedestrian walkway that allows them to safely negotiate the road. The builder promised a bridge  when the properties were built but it has not yet materialised and residents complain the problem has got worse with the widening of the N-332 and the opening of Zenia Boulevard bringing more traffic.

One said: “Swimmers and bathers could go to the beach and then go to the bars, restaurants and shops in the area if they had a footbridge to cross the road, but as it is, they drive to the beach and do not come.”

“They have argued against La Regia’s new footbridge which is currently being built over the N-332 saying there are closer bridges in the area for residents to cross the N-332, when at Alameda del Mar the closest one is at Punta Prima.”
