IU: "29 works of the EIB run the risk of losing funding because they will not be finished by December 31" (10/01/2019)

Gloria Martín blamed the mismanagement of the commitment of the Autonomous Community and the City Council in that they were awarded to companies of the IBEX 35. Instead of diversifying and facilitating local and regional companies to take charge of the projects, the public authorities have served interest of business giants, such as Ferrovial or Building and Contractor Development, who came to the heat of the disaster to take it raw without doing anything, because they have dedicated themselves to subcontracting

In the absence of less than a year to complete the third and last extension granted by the European Investment Bank (EIB) to justify the public works of reconstruction by the earthquakes of 2011, have not yet invested 70.4 million of the 185 of the loan granted by said agency.

It has denounced the councilor of Izquierda Unida-Verdes in the City of Lorca, who recalled that six and a half years after the Autonomous Community signed the loan with the EIB, 29 of the 79 actions planned are pending completion.

Some of them have not even begun despite the fact that they are "very large" works, which is why IU-Lorca fears that they will lose their funding.

Martín demanded explanations from the regional president, Fernando López Miras, and Mayor Lorca, Fulgencio Gil, about the delay in the materialization of these projects, which he also blamed his respective predecessors on the job.

With data in hand, the councilor of IU-Green showed that, for example, in the year 2018 just "0.9% of the loan" was executed.

For annuities, in 2012 only 0.52% of the 185 million were invested;

in 2013, 7.8%;

in 2015, 0.69%;

in 2016, 7.5%;

and in 2017, 6.5%.

The only year in which the investments were more notable was 2014, the pre-election year, where 18.2% of the loan was spent.

The IU councilor recalled that, initially, the EIB established December 31, 2016 as the deadline for completion of the works.

"They have requested extensions for three consecutive years and even then they are not able to meet the deadlines," lamented Martin.

Gloria Martín blamed the bad management of the EIB works on the efforts of the Autonomous Community and the City Council in that they were awarded to companies of the IBEX 35. "Instead of diversifying and facilitating local and regional companies to take charge of the projects, the public powers have served the interests of business giants, "he said.

"Here Ferrovial or Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas have come, in the heat of the disaster that we suffered, to take it crude without doing anything, because they have dedicated themselves to subcontracting, with the reduction that entails in the workers' compensation, which is where the benefit comes from companies that do not build anything but take the pasta. "

The mayor of IU-Green also criticized that 2.2 million euros of a loan "that was granted for the rehabilitation of buildings and infrastructure affected by the earthquakes of Lorca May 2011, has gone to the repair of roads that they run exclusively through the municipal districts of Totana, Puerto Lumbreras, Águilas, Mazarrón and Totana. "

Meanwhile, the works of urban renewal of the Old Port Way and adjacent ones, as well as those of the historic center or the passage under the railroad in Almendricos "are going to be left undone".

"We would like to know what the EIB thinks that with a money that had a very specific purpose have been repaired roads in half the region."

29 events against the clock

As for the neighborhoods of Lorca, Gloria Martín highlighted those of Cristo Rey (2 million euros), Jerónimo Santa Fe and adjacent (2.5 million), San Antonio (1.2 million), Santa Clara Avenue (2, 7 million), or Avenue of Europe (4.5 million), such as works that have not even begun and whose financing "is at risk".

Regarding the roads, Martín recalled that three of the four sections of the Central Evacuation Round are pending execution, whose total cost is 33 million euros, of which at least three must be contributed by the City Council.

The construction of the San Antonio underpass (3.3 million euros), or the viaduct on the section of the RM-11 between Lorca and Águilas (1 million) has not started either.

The road RM-D17 between Almendricos and Puerto Lumbreras (6.1 million euros), the section IV of the RM-C9 that connects Lorca with Zarzadilla de Totana (2.8 million) are also pending preparation of its layout and layout. , section III of the RM-D7, known as the La Pulgara road, and the RM-711 that joins the municipality with Caravaca (2 million).

On the other hand, phase II of the Santa Quiteria fairground (6.9 million euros) and the fire station of Lorca have not been completed either.

"Most of the pending works have an execution time of between 10 and 12 months, taking into account that some of them are even without bidding, we can affirm without fear of making mistakes that they will not be able to be justified on time", warned Martín.
