ORIHUELA city hall is claiming the right to repair a 60-metre section of Avenida de las Adelfas and the La Glea promenade.

Meanwhile, coastal authority Costas maintains that the Paseo and this stretch of road at the mouth of the River Nacimiento encroach on the state-owned maritime strip.

Both were washed away during the devastating storms of September 2019 but Costas has authorised only repairs to pedestrian footpath, specifying that removable concrete blocks should be used.

Meanwhile, this part of the road is closed to traffic, Orihuela city hall complained, obliging drivers to make a lengthy detour on less safe roads and cutting in half the Campoamar area with its thousands of residents.

City hall has now applied to  Valencia’s Upper Court of Justice (TSJCV), maintaining that it has the right to repair the road, based on Campoamor’s 1969 planning permission which included this road.
