ALTEA will receive €4.6 million of the national government’s €12.5 million budget for the Valencian Community coastline.
The welcomed news came from the Madrid government’s delegate Juan Carlos Moragues when he visited Altea to inspect the remodelled seafront.
This project was stalled for some time after the company contracted to renovate the Paseo ran out of money after putting in an unrealistically low tender. Work was resumed last September by publicly-owned, Tragsa, and should be completed this September.
Moragues, accompanied by Altea’s mayor Jaume Llinares and Rosa de los Rios, who heads the Provincial Coastline Service, inspected what is left of the Charco.
Soon nothing will remain of the unloved artificial lagoon that was the origin of bad smells caused by the stagnant water and the mosquitoes this attracted. It will be replaced with an artificial beach that pays special attention to environmental regeneration, a point emphasised by both Moragues and Llinares.
“Altea needs to reclaim its beaches and we shall continue asking for money to carry out the recovery and rehabilitation of the seafront from the Algar rivermouth to the port,” the mayor said.
