FOR the past three months, the Old Town centre of La Herradura has been the subject of its biggest transformation of the past 40 years.
A comprehensive series of renovations have been carried out across its streets, including renovations of the sewage and water supply systems, new pavement design and measures for fire prevention.
The first phase of the work was focused on the San Ramon, Blanquita, Cuesta Peralta streets and other surrounding areas.
This week, the finishing touches are being put to the renovation of Calle Granada and the surrounding areas, which were visited by Deputy Major, Juan Jose Ruiz Joya, as well as other government representatives.
“This work puts an end to problems with damp that several residents have been experiencing in recent years, as well as flooding problems resulting from the lack of an appropriate sewage system, which cause the creation of ‘rivers,’ especially in the Cuesta de Peralta and Cuesta de Fray Leopoldo streets,” said Mr Ruiz Joya. He finished: “I would like to apologise to all those neighbours who are being disturbed by the work and thank them for their understanding and collaboration.”
