CANTORIA council is actioning a major update of basic municipal infrastructure.
The local authority is going to be overhauling drainage and water networks in a good part of the municipality’s streets.
The €400,000 works will also involve replacing pavements, removing barriers for people with reduced mobility and resurfacing main roads, including Calle Alcalde Cristino María Sanchez, Filabres and Real and Avenida España.
Cantoria Mayor Puri Sanchez commented that the works project represented “what should be the normal function of a local council”, which she said was “maintaining, renewing and improving public services, and not for a mere question of image, but to gain maximum efficiency in infrastructure.”
The Mayor maintained that poor supply and drainage systems meant “medium-term maintenance costs and losses.”
The local authority is taking advantage of the infrastructure updates to run communications and electricity cables below ground it said.
