WORK on a bicycle lane in the south of Alicante City is scheduled to begin next month.

The five-kilometre route will link Casa Mediterraneo and the European Union’s Trademarks Office (OAMI). President of OAMI, Antonio Campinos, is a keen cyclist and has long campaigned for a cycle route for workers, as reported previously in the Euro Weekly News.

Residents’ associations believe that the cycle lane should follow the former Alicante-Murcia railway line, the disused Benalua terminus now houses the Casa Mediterranea. The lane would run parallel to the sea to the El Palmeral park, before crossing under Avenida de Elche and continuing to OAMI.

The Public Works department is also looking at narrowing the traffic lane and applying the urban speed limit to help improve road safety.
