BENIDORM’s Public Works councillor Jose Ramon Gonzalez de Zarate admitted that infrastructure in the Costa Blanca town’s Rincon de Loix area needed renovating. He and Citizens’ Participation councillor Ana Pellicer were making one of their regular visits to the town’s different districts, accompanied by Teresa Garrido and Manel Sanchez Notario, vice-presidents of Benidorm’s Residents’ Committee.
“Subterranean infrastructure for the domestic water supply and main drainage is 100 per cent inadequate and many streets lack storm drains,” De Zarate said. The Rincon de Loix would soon be at the receiving end of town hall spending, the councillor pledged: “Trust us, because this is one of the areas where we shall be investing most. ”No date has yet been announced for the start on work on the Rincon’s much-needed new health centre, De Zarate revealed. The town hall had done as much as it was able and was now waiting for the regional government’s authorisation for building to start, he said.
“We have provided the land and approved the building licence but are waiting for the Generalitat to put the contract out to tender,” the councillor added.
