Formentera Council reshuffles shade zones in nature reserve car parks

pergoles1The infrastructure department of the Formentera Council announces the successful completion of a project to reposition shade-making structures across car parks near to Illetes, Llevant and es Cavall d'en Borràs beaches.

The work required a €150,000 investment over three years, which the Council unlocked thanks to a reduction in the yearly fee the Balearic coastal authority charges the administration to occupy the parking areas.

Until 2016 the Council paid annual dues of €45,000 to occupy the land. The coastal authority lowered its asking price to €4,200 on the condition Formentera's local administration agreed to reposition the pergolas.

“This partnership is the Council's way of stepping up to the task of service and image upgrades in these areas of the nature reserve”, explained infrastructure and mobility secretary Rafael González. In 2011 the coastal authority agency opted to remove the shade-making parts of the pergolas, leaving only the wood pillars that had held the structure up.

The upgrades were carried out by the Formentera Council and the Ibifor company.

Normal vehicle traffic to resume in Sant Ferran as crews finish work

Obres gmontgri acabadesFormentera's infrastructure office reports that with road work complete, motorists in Sant Ferran can once again travel the northern stretch of a nearby arterial from this Saturday morning.

Upgrades this winter along carrer Guillem de Montgrí were seen as pro-pedestrian and a boost to local business. Crews eliminated a gaping height difference between the pavement and street and widened the pavements themselves. They also put in place new signage and painted lines on the road surface to reflect the town's new metred parking. That system, expected to alleviate the town's parking crunch, will take effect in June.

Drivers can once again use two Sant Ferran roads previously closed to traffic

Foto Guillem 2The Formentera Council's infrastructure office reports that this Saturday motorists in Sant Ferran will regain partial access to two local roads that had been temporarily closed for upgrades. Vehicle circulation will be allowed at reduced speeds on the southern stretch of carrer Guillem de Montgrí and along carrer València, two points where the work of road crews is nearly complete.

This winter, workers undertook a project aimed at promoting pedestrian mobility in the town centre and envigorating local businesses. Upgrades mean the previous height difference between the pavement and street level has been reduced, plus the pavements themselves are wider. New signage is also in place and freshly painted lines on the road surface now reflect the town's new metred parking. That system, expected to alleviate the town's parking crunch, will take effect in June.

Island steps up repairs across rural roads

Foto arranjament camins 2017The Council's infrastructure department reports that persistent rain this winter and a technical failure limited work crews' regular maintenance operations.

In an attempt to re-establish the normal pace of work and restore country roads battered by recent months' precipitation, the administration has spent €27,000 (VAT not included) bringing in an outside firm to assist the CiF maintenance brigade. Council officials say they hope the extra manpower will help bring the country roads —most of which are on the island's network of nature trails and heavily travelled— up to scratch in time for summer.

This week crews are working to refurbish roads in Migjorn.

Pedestrian area in Sant Ferran gets upgrades

Foto c majorThe Formentera Council's Office of Infrastructure and Mobility reports that from Friday, February 16, work crews will perform maintenance in the pedestrian area of Sant Ferran.

Upgrades, which involve repairs of shabby pavement, replacement of crummy street furniture and checks for faulty lighting, will also entail new pavement in front of the Sant Ferran church.

The work will cost €45,000 plus VAT and will be carried out alongside nearby upgrades currently under way at carrers València and Guillem de Montgrí. Both projects are expected to be finished by Easter.
