Torrevieja mayor José Manuel Dolón has informed that 50 parking spaces for bicycles have been installed on the service road of the Paseo de Vista Alegre promenade, and that a path for pedestrians has been marked out in the port with plastic bollards.
He said the parking spaces have been created to make things easier for people who often cycle, and are in addition to the ones already in use around the town centre and the 35 that are available in the Marina Salinas.
The Town Hall has also replaced the bicycle lane in the port with a path for pedestrians because very few cyclists were using it but many people walked along it to get to the fairground, the Marina Salinas, the promenades and the lighthouse.
The Local Police approved the modification as long as the path was marked out with bollards to separate it from the road for safety reasons. This was done in collaboration with the Marina Salinas and the Port Authority and is the finishing touch to the reorganisation of traffic that was carried ut in July.
In parallel to this, work to improve the car park is also being carried out after the contract to manage it was recently awarded to a new company by the Valencian Government.
