Arona pledges more asphalting after hospital road improvements
Arona council has promised it is already working on the next phase of its major asphalting plan to bring the municipality’s roads up to an acceptable standard.
The pledge was made by the Mayor, José Julián Mena when he visited the area around the new south hospital to see progress on road improvements.
Asphalting has been carried out in the Chayofa area, specifically in calle Tiguanfaya which is the main access and exit route for thousands of people to and from the middle of the municipality and to the hospital complex.
Sr. Mena said the work was a milestone because the road had become very deteriorated and residents had been demanding action for more than a decade.
This action is part of the second phase of Arona’s asphalt plans, which, once finalised, will have dealt with nearly 50 roads and streets. In the first phase, 14 projects were undertaken, adding to the 44 in the second, a high percentage of which have already been executed.
Arona council says its works department is already preparing the third phase.
Next to the calle Tiguanfaya in the Chayofa area, it is also planned to condition calle Somadita. All these actions are part of the program #Arona-Avanza which represents an investment of more than seven million euros this year.
Sr. Mena said when they took office, “the streets and roads of all the towns of the municipality presented a situation of abandonment for many years, so the plans of asphalting has become a priority for the government group. “
