JAVEA’S Triana bridge has now been reduced to rubble, and the Costa Blanca town awaits the new one that will replace it. The viaduct over the Gorgos river mouth was built in 1963, but has suffered from the flash floods that periodically swell the river and pounding waves during stormy weather. It was badly damaged in 2007 and the High Altitude Isolated Depression (DANA) last September widened existing cracks in the bridge’s pillars and the bridge had to be closed to all traffic. The town hall has now awarded the €487,381 contract to build a new bridge, which will have a single span and be less susceptible to flooding and the sea.
