The construction of a pedestrian lane parallel to the road between Abanilla and Mahoya will improve the current accessibility between the town and the village, as well as the communication on foot to the different houses that are located on the margins of the road.
The general director of Roads, José Antonio Fernández Lladó, visited the works today, together with the mayor of Abanilla, José Antonio Blasco, where he said that this lane "will improve the road safety of the pedestrians who make the journey between both locations and will provide residents of secure access to their homes. "
This intervention, in which the Ministry of Development and Infrastructure will invest 300,632 euros and that has an execution period of four months, consists of the construction of a 2-meter-long and 1.7-kilometer long stretch of walk, starting from the Pinoso road at the height of the Parque de la Ermita and continuing along the autonomous RM-412 until connecting with an existing sidewalk near the population center of Mahoya.
Throughout the section, salvacunetas steps, concrete lined gutters and runoff water collection channels will be executed, as well as the execution of several scuppers.
In addition, the necessary protections will be installed in each case, with a double biondal barrier or guard rail and the horizontal and vertical signaling will be adapted to the variations of pedestrian paths, adjoining lanes and access to the plots.
