BENIDORM has improved access to eight municipal buildings. 
The council has installed automatic doors as part of the Accessibility and Sustainability Improvement project at a cost of nearly €48,500. 
Benidorm Mayor Toni Perez explained there are automatic accesses at the Els Tolls administrative extension, the Jose Llorca Linares social centre, the Rincon de Loix administrative extension, the Diego Cano Enguera Casa del Fester, the Jelena social centre and at the Social Well-being department in plaza Pintor Lozano. 
He also explained doors were being put in at the Beniarda administrative extension and at the Boca Calvari museum, and that there were plans to ultimately put in automatic doors on the rest of the municipal buildings. 
 “It is a small project, but which makes life much easier for the people of Benidorm and visitors”, the Mayor commented, pointing out all the buildings in question are those which are centres for basic services, predominantly social in nature, and which therefore have high numbers of people coming and going. 
“We want an accessible Benidorm”, Perez stressed.
