Shedding new light on Avenida Chayofita
Avenida Chayofita in Los Cristianos now has high energy saving LED central lighting.
It was unveiled at the inauguration of the pedestrian walkway of this important communication route, which has also seen new landscaped areas.
The new lighting of the road has benefited its central area, giving it a new look and improving visibility and safety, which is in addition to the recent opening of the pedestrian walkway, the dismantling of the two previous ones, the landscaping of the environment , the reordering of traffic and the installation of lighting in the adjoining streets, in which important educational and sports centres are located and which had never had lighting.
The actions carried out so far not only offer a different image of what is one of the main windows of the municipality, but also have improved visibility, safety conditions and have signifi-cantly reduced the queues that were formed here.

The Mayor of Arona, José Julián Mena, explained the importance of “undertaking, step by step, the transformation of Chayofita Avenue, which is not only an important means of communication, but a great showcase for Los Cristianos and a public space for the thousands of people who pass thruogh it every day to go to educational and sports centres.”
