CONSTRUCTION work on Rincon de la Victoria’s first indoor pool will start in two months.
After more than six years of paperwork, two potential locations and three failed public tenders, Rincon de la Victoria Council has given the green light to an agreement with public company Tragsa, which belongs to the Agriculture, Food and Environment Ministry.
Mayor Francisco Salado explained that the pool project was now waiting for the approval of the ministry and that once that procedure was finished, the construction work would begin.
“We reckon the work will be able to start in a period of approximately two months,” said the mayor, who explained that the agreement with a public company allowed the council to reduce the equipment budget by 12 per cent, a total of €500,000.
This means that the pool’s total budget will be €3.8 million, instead of the originally foreseen €4.3 million.
The new facilities will have a total surface of 18,350 square metres, out of which 4,895 metres will be earmarked for the construction of cultural premises, and 2,117 for parking spaces.
There will be a six-lane pool of 25-metres in length, gym, spa, three indoor sports room and a cafeteria.
