The Mayor stresses that the delivery of the houses of the new neighborhood of San Fernando, which will be on March 11, symbolizes the culmination of the reconstruction process after the earthquakes (11/01/2019)

Fulgencio Gil: "Lorca we leave behind a period that will be marked in the history of the city forever.The next generations will enjoy proud of a better city, more modern and with the infrastructures that we needed so much".

The Mayor of Lorca, Fulgencio Gil, together with the Regional Government Development Advisor, Patricio Valverde and the President of the Neighborhood Association of San Fernando, Fernando Roldán, visited the comprehensive improvement works that are being finalized for construction of the new neighborhood of San Fernando, an act in which they have informed the neighbors that, if no eventualities of relevance arise, next March 11, the neighbors will be given the keys to their homes.

It will be a day that will go down in the history of our municipality, symbolizing the culmination of the reconstruction process of the houses that were affected by the earthquakes of 2011.

The First Edil has indicated that the neighborhood of San Fernando is a reference model for the entire reconstruction process that Lorca we are running in our municipality after the earthquakes of 2011. We are talking about rebuilding a whole neighborhood, where they lived 232 families, who lost their homes due to the earthquakes of that year.

These were blocks of flats that were built in the 70s to house precisely families of our city who had also lost their homes due to a natural catastrophe, such as the floods of 1973.

Fulgencio Gil has stressed that the new neighborhood of San Fernando reflects the desire to excel that all the society of Lorca has shown after the earthquakes.

In fact, together with the neighborhood of La Viña, we talked about the area most affected by the earthquakes.

We have to say that it has not been easy to process and administratively manage the necessary procedure for this neighborhood to be rebuilt.

It would not be fair to forget everything that has been carried out to date, anticipating and thanking, first and foremost, the transcendental collaboration, effort and understanding of its neighbors.

We must remember that, after the demolition of several blocks, uncertainty arose about the status of others who had remained standing but serious structural damage.

Finally the technicians determined that these blocks also presented technical ruin, and proceeded to its demolition.

From this moment the neighbors themselves organized to raise San Fernando again, starting a process that we knew was going to be complicated, and that has not been free of eventualities that, with the support of all the parties, have been solved until reaching the current situation.

Up to 3 housing plans have been necessary and an investment has been made by the Autonomous Community, through the Ministry of Development, to implement a comprehensive improvement of the urbanization of the neighborhood, which has helped level the neighborhood, ending the depression at the middle level of the street on which it is located, in addition to incorporating new channels of services related to telecommunications, supply and sanitation, as well as electricity and other issues.

The Mayor stressed that the works for the overall improvement of the neighborhood are almost completed.

This is an action financed by the Regional Government through the Ministry of Development, with a total investment of 4.5 million, of which 2.6 correspond to the project of integral improvement.

Fulgencio Gil has affirmed that we are all looking forward to the moment, now close, when these families receive the keys to be able to return to their apartments.

I believe it will be the culmination of a historic moment in the process of recovery and reconstruction of Lorca after the earthquakes of 2011, as well as remain engraved in the collective and sentimental imaginary of a city that has overcome with strength the most devastating natural disasters in its history .

The progress of the work has allowed a very advanced level of execution in all areas of urbanization, with data such as Demolitions: 96%, Land movement: 95%, supply network: 100%, telecommunications: 96%, management Waste: 96%, Processing centers: 88%.
