La Orotava welcomes new schemes, including bus station refurb
La Orotava is to see a number of new schemes either started or in the pipeline this year, including work on the local bus station.
The local council will also act in the conditioning of several roads as in sections of the TF-21.
The Mayor of La Orotava, Francisco Linares, held a working meeting with the island directors of promotions and roads of the Cabildo de Tenerife, Miguel Becerra and Ofelia Majón, respectively.
The meeting also included the councillors of works and infrastructure, Felipe David Benítez and Narciso Pérez, respectively, as well as the spokesman for the government group, Juan Doniz.
Details of the refurbishment project for the bus station were discussed, which, among other actions, contemplates the rehabilitation of all sidewalks, the removal of architectural barriers and the installation of new furniture.
The objective is to give this space a renewed image and make the stay of the thousands of people who use this facility every day more pleasant. The work is expected to take place throughout this year, with the insular institution investing about 65,000 euros.
Various road improvements were also detailed, actions which were appreciated by La Orotava council to help with traffic safety and circulation.
Other smaller items were discussed, such as conditio-ning of the parking lot of the Humboldt viewpoint or the installation of traffic lights in the access to the Manuel de Falla School.
Sr. Linares said they appre-ciated the predisposition of the Cabildo to meet the main demands of citizens, not only in the municipality of La Orotava but the rest of the island.
To the projects executed and to those that are underway must be added others such as the third phase of TF-21, which will mean continuing to improve this important route as it passes through the urban centres of Barroso and Colombo. The Cabildo is already working on the award of the drafting of this important project that will involve an investment of more than three million euros.
