PUBLIC areas in Albox are to receive some TLC over the next nine months thanks to a regional government rural employment scheme.
A €365,000 budget has been set aside for work on parks and gardens, fountains, pavements and rural tracks in the area, the council explained.
Stage One of the project, which began last month and is due to be finished by June, includes improvements to green areas on squares and around public schools, building and repairing pavements, paving rural tracks, improving fountains and renovating the Los Collaos social centre.
Gardens will be upgraded on Plaza Mayor, Plaza de San Francisco and in districts including Los Segovias-Casicas, Llano de los Olleres, Mirador de La Santa Cruz, Las Pocicas, Locaiba-Los Quiles, Aljambra, Madroño and Santa Rosa.
Altogether there are 38 tasks planned within the project, with main priorities being paving rural tracks including Rambla Agua Sala, Barranco del Infierno, Camino de la Aljambra, Camino Los Serenises and Rambla Honda, building new pavements on Calle Arrabal and opposite the Agua y Salud centre, and repairing pavements on Calle Mendoza and Calle Jaen.
