Safer for walking

LOCAL DONATION: Denia town hall receives land to widen dangerous pavement Photo credit: Denia town hall

THANKS to a local family, a blackspot can disappear at the Joan Fuster-Diana intersection in Denia.
The pavement narrows to nothing where the road curves into Cami Sant Joan, at a point where the town hall has long wanted to improve pedestrian safety.
This is now possible thanks to a local resident who has ceded enough of his land to widen the pavement.
“Some months back, a car ran into a woman and her baby in a pushchair,” said the landowner’s son-in-law.
There were no serious consequences, he added, although there could have been, prompting the family’s decision to cede the land.
