The second phase of the works has already begun and will serve to improve both the sewage system and the sidewalks and accessibility of the Els Clots neighborhood in Alcoy. This phase affects the streets Pintor Laporta, Pare Vitoria, and Llibertat, where the sewage system and water pipes will be adapted, while also acting on the streets to improve their accessibility.
The work, which has been awarded to the company Aglomerados del Sureste for a total of 132,385 euros and which will be carried out over three months, will consist of the installation of a new sewer system with PVC pipes and prefabricated concrete wells, connecting the homes directly to the new wells. The work also includes the construction of the new drinking water network and sewers in these streets. With the change and improvement of the sewer system, the neighborhood’s residents will also have wider sidewalks, going from 1.12 meters to 1.5 meters, and accessible pedestrian crossings. At the same time, the affected roads will be resurfaced and signposted horizontally.
The Councilor for Works and Universal Accessibility, Jordi Martínez, has highlighted that “the commitment of this government to renew this important infrastructure in the Els Clots neighborhood, being an ancient stretch of the city that has meant, in these two phases, an investment of more than 445,000 euros. The actions in the sewerage system are essential works for the day-to-day life of the neighborhood. In this case, moreover, the residents will also see the streets improved, with new pavements and accessible pedestrian crossings.”
