The Cabildo de Tenerife has plans to start work on the first phase of the seafront between Los Cristianos beach and Los Tarajales beach, in the municipality of Arona, at the end of July 2018, a budget of more than 1.1 million euros.
The Insular Government Council, meeting this week under the presidency of its holder, Carlos Alonso, awarded this performance to the Comsa Bahíllo company, which will be charged to execute the works.
The vice president and insular councilor of Tourism, Alberto Bernabé, highlighted the investment effort made by the Cabildo “to promote a project that has been in great demand by the businessmen and neighbors of the area.” Bernabé says that this action “will allow recovering a degraded environment, revitalizing the shops and providing the town with a first-class seafront in line with the quality requirements we want for our destination.”
The works planned in this first phase, which have an execution period of eight months, will create a continuous and accessible pedestrian itinerary that promotes the connection with the coast while integrating the free spaces between the buildings and the different infrastructures.
The works that will be carried out will improve accessibility and pedestrian connectivity with El Coronel street and Juan Carlos I avenue and include the complete remodeling of the coastal promenade (Avenida Juan Alfonso Batista), some 265 meters long. The solution chosen is similar to that designed for the section of the Los Cristianos walk executed between the Port and the Aquilino Ravine, so that the pedestrian will perceive the entire walk and the beach without obstacles.
Alberto Bernabé said that this project will contribute to boost an important area of tourist transit and notes that with interventions like this “we climb one more step in our commitment to quality and a tourist that generates more spending at destination and, therefore, higher employment and progress for Tenerife.”
