The neighborhood of Colonia Madrid in Benidorm will debut 225 new “led” street lights
The renewal of public lighting, dating from the 60s, will have an investment of close to 200,000 euros and will improve energy efficiency, safety and the urban scene
New lighting in the neighborhood that allows improving energy efficiency, safety and the urban scene.
Benidorm City Council is going to renovate the street lighting of about twenty streets in the neighborhood of Colonia Madrid, which will thus have luminaires with “LED” technology.
Specifically, 225 luminaires will be replaced in these streets.
The mayor, Toni Pérez, explained that the current public lighting “has its origin in the 60s, so we talked about obsolete facilities in which in many cases had not even been intervened in a timely manner.”
The contract was awarded last Wednesday at the Local Government Board and will begin to be applied soon.
The mayor stressed that “this performance of energy efficiency” will reduce consumption and will also “allow greater security and an aesthetic and image change in almost the entire neighborhood of Madrid” with an investment of close to 200,000 euros
Specifically, it will act in the streets: Sports, Virgen de la Paloma, Moon, Mirror, Gardens, Rejoneador Ginés Cartagena, Goya, Macarena, Paseo de las Acacias, Paseo de la Castellana, Serrano, Alcalá, Salamanca, Almudena, Velázquez , Montera, Florida, Atocha and Arnedo.
Perez has pointed out that this type of works and projects show that “Benidorm advances at a firm pace, intervening in each and every one of the neighborhoods”, and in the specific case of the Colonia Madrid “being very much benefited from powerful performances such as the Parque de Foietes, that we are also accompanying others oriented to update their public roads “.
