Quieter street cleaning for Las Galletas!
The Town Hall of Arona is installing in different poin-ts of the town of Las Galletas water intakes that will allow the cleaning of the streets by hand.
The council says this will adapt to the urban layout of this nucleus, especially of the commercial area, and will to allow a significant reduction in the inconvenience and noise caused to residents by the use of vehicles.
“The objective of this action is to optimise this service, adapting it to the urban layout of Las Galletas, which has an important pedestrian and commercial area, in which the use of manual washing is much more effective than the use of vehicles, both mobility as by the noise they generate to householders,” a spokes-man explained.
In total, 16 outlets are being installed in the pedestrian area, on roads such as the seafront and streets Cándida Peña Bello, Sol del Sur, La Arena, Luis Álvarez Cruz or Morro Cubas.
The Mayor of Arona, José Julián Mena, explained that with the installation of these outlets “we are fulfilling a request that has been transferred to us by the residents of Las Galletas, as well as the business fabric of the area, which had been sent to us by the need, not only to reinforce the cleaning, but to introduce hand washing and minimise noise and discomfort.”
