THE cleaning of beaches ravaged by Storm Gloria has begun across the municipality of Manacor in Spain’s Mallorca whose coastline suffered considerably as a result of the adverse weather conditions.
Led by the Council who have hired a specialised company to carry out the work, the cleaning began on the beach of s’Illot and continued across Manacor’s shores. Beach regeneration is required in Cala Anguila, Cala Mandia and S’Estany den Mas, where wooden walkways and showers also need repairing.
In aim of improving the coastline through the removal of stones, organic waste and plastics which accumulated on the beaches from the storm, the Council expect the cleaning to take approximately one week. The Council has estimated that there was approximately €3.8 million of damage caused by the storm in the municipality.
In regards to repairing heavily damaged promenades found along the coastline, Mayor Miquel Oliver, Maria Antònia Truyols, the Governor of Tourism and Sebastià Nadal, the Councillor for the Coastal Zone, recently met with technicians to discuss the improvement works.
It was determined that the Council will cover the cost of the works due to the promenades importance in the tourism sector with Oliver reassuring citizens that they will be in good condition for the start of the 2020 season.
