Four new car parks take shape as part of Adeje’s “future vision”
Adeje council has embarked on an 18 million euro plan to develop new infrastructures and improve tourist facilities relating to mobility.
Affecting Costa Adeje, they are included in the Strategic Plan for Sustainable Investments, which is integrated into the Adeje 2020 project.
Key projects will include the construction of up to four new car parks in the centre of Adeje and the conditioning of some roads considered key to municipal development.
The Mayor, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga presented details recently with the councillor for works and services, Carmen Rosa González Cabrera and the municipal technical manager, Román García Higuera.
“The works are instruments to develop policies oriented to people. With this mobility plan, we intend to solve one of the main demands,” said the Mayor.
“The works have been staggered over time with the aim of causing the least inconvenience to residents. In the strategic mobility plan, we have established that the priority is people in front of vehicles, so we are going to generate spaces for them, such as a large avenue at the entrance of Adeje and a bike path from the coast to the historic centre.”
He added: “We have started the asphalt plan for the remodelling of the roads of the districts and Costa Adeje with a budget of almost four million euros. “
Sr. Fraga said the implementation of this Strategic Plan responds to a vision of the future for Adeje and had been made possible by budget stability.
Carmen Rosa González Cabrera said that regarding parking, “these are open, functional buildings, designed for people, which end with a square at street level, with children’s elements and in the case of Los Olivos even with a sports area. It is, in short, about creating parking for easy access to shops, administrations, homes … but also meeting spaces and coexistence. “
The design of the car parks has taken into account that they are functional, accessible, equipped with new technologies, energy-efficient, with light sensors, places for cars of reduced mobility and supply for electric cars.
“For this reason, the work we present has the challenge of offering efficient, sustainable, urban-integrated works, where the pedestrian is the absolute priority and in which every cent of in-vestment has an impact on the improvement of the quality of life of citizens,” she said.
In the area of Casa Fuerte, very close to the Plaza de España and the town hall, the first of the public car parks is almost finished. This work has cost more than three million euros, financed entirely by the council and will provide 200 new places.
The Los Olivos car park is already under construction. Costing 3.2 million, it will be fully integrated into the environment with a series of first level infrastructures for public use.
These two car parks are already a tangible reality, says Adeje council, but there will soon be movement on two others, which will be located on the ground floor of the Emigrante Plaza, at the back of the Town Hall, and in La Postura, where there is currently a public outdoor parking, which will be replaced by a multi-storey enclosure with space for almost 500 cars.
