Last March, the Town Council awarded the replacement works in La Niña Street and the Gabriel Miró and Ifac Avenues. The works were scheduled in La Niña Street and Ifac Avenue for the beginning of April, after the Holy Week, and should finish before the summer season.
Regarding the Gabriel Miró Avenue, one of the main commercial arteries of the town, the works should start at the beginning of September and end before the festivities of Moors and Christians, since the great parade takes place along this avenue.
However, the continual failures of the awarded company, which has repeatedly postponed the start of the works, has led the Town Council to rescind the contract and start the proceedings again. It supposes to postpone the beginning of the works but to execute them with guarantees.
At present these three streets have areas of broken and damaged paved cobblestone due to episodes of intense rain, so it is proposed as a solution the replacement of the cobblestone in La Niña Street with less slope and to remove the entire pavement in the Ifach and Gabriel Miró Avenues to replace it with printed asphalt with paving stone print.
In fact, provisionally and waiting to resume the works of replacement, today the Town Council started to upgrade those sections where the cobblestone is more damaged to improve road conditions for the summer season.
These streets were included in February 2011 in the works of the Commercial Action Plan (PAC), financed with funds from the European Union in order to revitalize the commercial context in Calp. Being subject to financing with European funds, works to improve the pavement could only be undertaken after the five years marked by European regulations in this respect.
