Access for all pledged at La Esperanza cemetery
The cemetery of La Esperanza is being made accessible for people with reduced mobility.
The remodelling works are advancing at a good pace, says El Rosario council. The cemetery will also have a modern garden for the scattering of ashes in its central corridor.
The main objective of the project, which is being run by the company Traysesa, is to achieve the general rehabili-tation of the site and the adaptation of pedestrian areas to facilitate the transit of people with reduced mobility.
Architectural barriers are being removed to get rid of the various layers.
The garden is being provided for the scattering of ashes, given the gradual increase in cremation and the need to have a place quali-fied for the cremation. The scattering of ashes inside the cemetery will be a service provided free of charge. The general rehabilitation of the cemetery has a budget of 53,225’12 euros and has a term of three months.
Previously, during the month of June, the extension of the cemetery was com-pleted with the execution of 144 new niches. This work, awarded to the company Anso XXI for an amount of 29,499’81 euros, solved the lack of niches inside a cemetery inaugurated in 1927 and that required a greater number of remains of niches in view of the growing demand.
In addition, it was equipped with a new forklift platform to facilitate the work of the workers, which involved an investment of 14,543’36 euros, which was necessary to adapt the service needs to the new regulations in force. These two actions, together with those of the resurfacing, make a set of almost 100,000 euros invested in the improvement of the La Esperanza cemetery throughout this year.
