TWO pedestrian crossings will be installed in Los Balcones for those crossing the busy CV-95.
Torrevieja mayor, Jose Manuel Dolon, said approval has been granted after “years of asking.”
The work will be carried out by the Department of Infrastructure, with two crossings installed by the service streets of Ucrania and Orihuela, close to the pharmacy and bus stop.
They will also have ramps for easy access for people with mobility problems, and people with pushchairs.
Residents have long been calling for greater safety improvements in the area. The mayor is also requesting assistance from the provincial council to carry out a project to improve access from Los Balcones to the hospital just metres away.
