Orihuela has started repair work on the pedestrian path in the Punta de la Glea micro-reserve.

The Councillor for the Environment, Noelia Grao, highlighted the importance of these repairs to ensure the safety of pedestrians and visitors while preserving the micro-reserve’s natural environment.

The councillor pointed out that the path had been in poor condition, with a deteriorated fence, overturned and broken posts, and visible holes.

Repair Work

The repair work involves reattaching steps that have detached from the path’s access points, filling and compacting holes, replacing and repairing wooden fence posts, and replacing the rope used for the fence.

Additionally, it includes repairing holes and trimming branches that encroach on the path and obstruct movement.

The councillor emphasised that this path, located in a unique coastal enclave, has been attracting an increasing number of visitors.
