The mayor, Diego José Mateos, recalled the problems encountered by users of Health Area 3, who come daily to this hospital, when leaving their cars.
For the month of September they will have 68 new places.
The mayor of Lorca, Diego José Mateos, presented this morning, together with the Councilor for Development, Isabel Casalduero, the project to expand the number of parking spaces in the vicinity of the Rafael Méndez de Lorca Hospital.
The mayor has detailed that "specifically, this project includes the creation of 68 new parking spaces in a municipal property, annexed to the hospital, thanks to the conditioning of a total area of â€‹â€‹2,000 m2 and will be available for the month of September".
Mateos Molina recalled that "parking in the surroundings of Rafael Méndez is a real odyssey. The neighbors of Lorca, Puerto Lumbreras, Totana, Águilas and Aledo who go to the hospital suffer, we suffer daily. It is a claim that since the Socialist Party we have been demanding a definitive solution for many years, apart from the provisional measures put in place by the previous government team, such as a shuttle bus that we proposed. "
The First Edil explained that "this action will consist of the regularization of the firm with contribution of artificial gravel and cold asphalt treatment. In addition, all the horizontal signage of the necessary squares will be installed, as well as palm tree transplants to the garden areas perimeter. "
Mateos explained that, "the approximate budget of the action is 12,000 euros and again as you can see with very little money we can get solutions to the problems that affect Lorca and Lorca, as a few days ago we saw the example of enlargement of parking for buses at the IES San Juan Bosco, and that the entire educational community had been demanding: teachers, parents and students, for the past 12 years. "
A measure to decongest the parking problems ensured the mayor of Lorca and reiterated that "we will continue to claim the construction of a new public parking in the Rafael Méndez Autonomous Community because if there is a work that had to have been a priority since years is the extension of the public parking area of â€‹â€‹the lorquino hospital. And once again we have suffered the abandonment by
part of a Regional Government that has carried out extensions in the number of parking spaces in other hospitals in the Region. "
"The Community has the obligation to do the same at the Rafael Méndez de Lorca hospital, as it is about improving and providing facilities to the citizens of this Region," said the Mayor who also recalled that "this problem due to the lack Parking in Rafael Méndez was also addressed in the extraordinary Monographic Plenary held in October last year at the request of the PSOE to address the critical situation of public health in Lorca and in area III of health.
