Puerto’s Mayor, Lope Afonso said: “We are complying with the commitment that this corporation has with the citizenship, renewing im-portant transit routes that will give a new image to our municipality.”
He said they intended to continue with the commitment as “in 30 years, some roads have not seen a layer of asphalt.”
General Services coun-cillor, Angel Montañés said they were pleased to be see work start on repaving one of the busiest routes of the municipality as it had been urgently needed due to the very bad deterioration.
“With this action we improve the main road of one of the largest population centres of the municipality. In addition, we plan to work in the gardening of the green areas around the neigh-bourhood and finish acting on the posts of the lampposts, which already have a new LED luminaire but they will all be repainted,” he added.
