The Paseo Vista Alegre in Torrevieja has reopened to the public following a 3.1-million-euro refit. The project, which was started last year, has now been virtually completed. Traffic flow along the seafront road is back to normal following several months of disruption.
- Pergolas have been installed to produce shady areas with two sets of benches sited on opposite sides of the walkway.
- New lampposts provide improved lighting at night.
- More pedestrian crossings have been installed to allow safer access to the town centre from the promenade.
- Green areas and gardens have also been constructed to improve the aesthetics of the area.
Some jobs will be completed at a later date. These include installing wood on top of the new pergolas to create the shady areas and the renewal of pavements and street lighting in the vicinity of the promenade.
