The Department of Local Development starts a new action for integral improvement in the area of ​​Las Alamedas (14/11/2017)

This is the renewal of landscaping, pavement, rainwater evacuation network and provision of underground lines for telecommunications services in the Alameda Ramn y Cajal stretch included between Santa Clara Avenue (Kiosko Sevilla) and Corregidor Lapuente.

The Local Development Councilor in the City of Lorca, Sandra Martinez, reported that the Municipal Council will proceed to the comprehensive arrangement of the Alameda Ramn y Cajal, specifically the stretch between its confluence with the Avenida de Santa Clara (Kiosko Sevilla ) and the Alameda Margarita Lozano and Corregidor Lapuente.

Sandra Martinez explained that this is a remarkable intervention for improvement, substitution and aesthetic readjustment that is going to be executed by this municipal area thanks to the participation of the students of the Flora and Entrebarrios programs, who will carry out works aimed at the improvement of gardening, pluvial network, public lighting, channeling for communications supply networks and paving, as main elements.

It involves an investment of 52,000 euros and has an expected execution period of 3 months.

The Local Development Council has indicated that the area of ​​the Alamedas de Lorca is the main green lung of the urban area, with green areas of special interest, being frequented by thousands of Lorca every day, being also the main communication mode of green corridor between the center of the city and the neighborhoods of Santa Quiteria and Virgen de las Huertas.

It takes particular prominence during the patron saint festivities of La Virgen de las Huertas, the fair and parties in September and the events taking place at the Huerto de la Rueda fairground, when there is a particularly marked pedestrian traffic, a reflection of the movement of citizens and visitors who come to the stages of multiple events.

Las Alamedas, in addition, welcome the passage of numerous families who accompany schoolchildren to the area of ​​San Fernando, San Jos and Jos Robles schools, as well as hundreds of Lorca fans who practice sports throughout its length.

Sandra Martinez has detailed that the improvements in the chapter of gardening include the withdrawal and replacement of a total length of 400 linear meters of curbs, given that the current ones present deteriorations that require their renewal.

This chapter includes the necessary work to demolish existing curbs as a separation of the pedestrian area and the flowerbeds.

The renovation of the rainwater evacuation network is also foreseen, including the replacement of 8 scuppers

The planned intervention will involve the enhancement of existing gardening and trees, paying special attention to the replacement of withered or stopped specimens with new ones specially selected to ensure their climatic adaptation to the natural conditions of Lorca and taking into account their aesthetic appeal in the enclave in the one that they place.

The existing hedge in the longitudinal part of the curb will be replaced, taking into account the criteria described, since it presents numerous deteriorations, placing 420.00 ml of a different and better acclimated variety.

The existing drip irrigation network will also be replaced, installing new hoses that will improve the distribution of water, optimizing the use of water to the maximum.

A pruning of bushes and plants of this mall will be carried out, remodeling and implementing the plantation of existing bushes.

It will proceed, in addition, to remodel the roundabout of the intersection with Alameda Corregidor Lapuente.

The street lighting will also be improved, replacing a total of 12 luminaires by lamps made of injected aluminum, with cast iron arms and equipped with last generation LED technology, higher performance and better lighting.

The works will allow resident residents to have an underground network for the provision of telecommunications services, through the realization of 205 linear meters of networks for ducts with prisms of 4 PVC tubes, which will be concreted and include their corresponding boxes.

Another intervention that directly benefits residents is the renewal of the paving of the existing entrances to the plots, differentiating it from the promenade area of ​​albero by installing cream-colored paving blocks.

The street, in this sense, adopts the typology in which priority is given to pedestrian use, renewing a layer of albero of 5 cm with a total area of ​​1250 m2.

The existing stone benches will be dismantled to elevate them and place them at a suitable height for their correct use by the citizens, since part of the current ones is sunk in the albero.

The delimiting curbs of planters are also renewed, in a length of 400 meters, placing them from now on at a higher height to incorporate and replace vegetal earth, which will suppose a relief for the vegetal species.
