THE Mar Menor is to recover traditional docks to create new berths. The Minister of Public Works and Infrastructures, Francisco Bernabe was in San Pedro del Pinatar and said: “The Mar Menor recovers the stamp of traditional docks to create new berths in the lagoon, which will be linked to the activity of the sailing schools and tourist centres.”
He added: “We are committed to providing the best possible protection and promotion of the lagoon, which is important for the recovery of this infrastructure in its traditional character.”
Bernabe met with the government team of San Pedro, businessmen and traders from the local entrepreneurs union, to discuss the plans and explain how he hopes the move to change the infrastructure will “contribute to ending illegal moorings in the Mar Menor, as part of these vessels will have a new berth.
The regional government will soon begin to undertake the first actions aimed at the implementation of such initiatives intended to put an end to 3,000 boats moored illegally in the Mar Menor.”
Plans will also see the creation of seven areas of daily access to boats in the Mar Menor, with parking areas and ramps offering direct access to the water and also the promotion of the construction of marine environments in dry marinas and development of ecological projects.
