THE inauguration of the new section of Mojacar’s promenade is scheduled for next Wednesday May 25.
Deputy Mayor and Tourism Councillor Emmanuel Aguero confirmed the date last week. The €990,000 project will extend the existing promenade by some 880 metres, from the Cueva de Lobo beach, along to the Red Cross building.
The new phase will include a pedestrian walkway, cycle path, landscaping, beach access and a parking area. Initial works on the project began when the first ‘stone’ was laid by mayor, Rosa Maria Cano, at a special ceremony in March last year and construction began shortly afterwards.
During the event, a ‘time-capsule’ was buried, the box contained a selection of the day’s newspapers, coins from the 2015 mint and a letter signed by all attending dignitaries.
Construction workers have been on site from morning until night, including weekends and fiestas to ensure the promenade opens on time.
Further details of the opening will be posted on the Mojacar Informa Facebook page.
