WORK to develop Albox’s San Antonio district started last week.
Its main street, Calle San Antonio, has been prioritised and will undergo a comprehensive series of improvements as it had numerous cracks, narrow or nonexistent pavements, as well as unpaved areas.
Plans are to create a more accessible and attractive historical town centre, facilitating transit and eliminating obstacles, levelling streets and providing it with urban furniture sympathetic with its original appearance.
“This project has been much requested by the area’s residents and we at the council have been working on its development since the beginning of 2014,” said town mayor, Rogelio Mena.
He continued: “We want the San Antonio district to stand out on its own, beautifying its façades and improving local people’s quality of life.”
Other work will include the upgrading of sewage systems and placing wires underground.
Work is expected to be completed in a period of seven weeks and will have a total cost of €182,200.
