JAVEA town hall announced that the Triana bridge could reopen for pedestrians.
The municipal engineer and town hall experts, who drafted plans to pull down and reconstruct the existing bridge, have now inspected the structure.
The bridge, which crosses the Gorgos rivermouth has been affected by bad weather in the past and was closed during the recent Isolated Depression at High Level (DANA).
The inspection team, accompanied by Javea’s mayor Jose Chulvi, paid particular attention to the underside of the reinforced concrete structure and cracks in the road above.
The bridge can safely bear the weight of pedestrians, they found, but decided to close it to vehicles until its rehabilitation, which is due to begin soon.
Chulvi pointed out that the contract to carry out the work will be awarded this week. Although scheduled to begin some time ago, work was delayed after the original contractor abandoned the project.
