The blue zone will be applied in half a dozen more streets and will reach the area of Foietes
The abolition of places leads the City to include new vials to avoid generating economic imbalance in the contract
The blue zone will be expanded in Benidorm.
Half a dozen streets will become a blue zone in Benidorm to compensate for the seats that have been abolished in recent years.
This was reported yesterday in the Mobility Council of the tourist city where the need to “create new squares of blue zone to compensate for the more than 200 that have been eliminated in the last three and a half years, and that have left the number of regulated parking spaces below the minimum of 1.523 established in the specifications”.
The payment area will reach Foietes, beyond the center of the tourist town.
Specifically, the affected streets will be Limones between Maravall and Jaime I (8 seats, Jupiter between Tomás Ortuño and Almendros (9 seats), avenue de Foietes (80 seats), Calle Orxeta (23 seats), avenida Aigüera with Plaza SSMM Reyes Spain (10 seats), London Street between Ametlla del Mar and Stockholm (20 seats) To these areas, we must add the squares that pass from ‘summer zone’ to annuals that are the avenue of Europe between Lepanto and the Mediterranean; Lepanto between Doctor Orts Llorca and Europa, Gerona between the Philippines and Derramador and Almería between Lepanto and Mediterráneo.
As explained yesterday by the technicians, due to the renovation or remodeling of the streets and avenues of the Mediterranean -and adjacent-, Ametlla del Mar, Tomás Ortuño and Carrasco “a total of approximately 195 regulated parking spaces will be eliminated”, to those that are added to those already suppressed by accessibility or pedestrianization works in other roads. Hence the creation of new squares of blue zone to comply with the specifications of the contract of the ORA.
“It is essential to compensate at least those places to avoid that the concession incurs an economic imbalance; a circumstance that, if it were to occur, would oblige the City Council to face “notable economic compensations”.
In addition, according to the technicians, “it is very convenient to have a ‘mattress’ of seats so as not to have to be permanently compensating the company for actions on public roads.
