Alcoy begins work on a new bike path and walkway under the Cervantes bridge

The project will have an investment that exceeds 280,000 euros and will further lengthen the via verde.

The action resulting from a winning proposal put forward by citizens as to how best the city council should spend excess funds from last year’s budget will cost 281.487 euros, of which the European Union will pay 50%.

Councilor for Participatory Democracy, Teresa Sanjuan, has stated that it is a complicated project that has undergone several modifications and delays. It will finally connect the Riquer riverbed on both sides of the María Cristina bridge.

“It is a project that citizens highly demand, and that will entail an evident improvement in the use and enjoyment of an area that we want to promote with sports and healthy leisure activities.”

The 45-meter infrastructure will link the urbanized part of the Riquer riverbed with the Santa Ana sports area, where the skate park is located, through two sections. It will allow the continuity of the greenway from the Muboma to the Font del Quinzet.
