The municipal government of Arona has conveyed to the Cabildo de Tenerife its concern about the possibility that the emergency works of the Las Galletas promenade overlap with the beginning of the school year, generating more inconvenience to the residents of this nucleus, so the The City Council has also called for “speed in the execution of the works.” The Cabildo has informed the municipal corporation that the works would begin next week, since the hiring of the company that will carry out the work is in its final phase.
Last Friday, the high tide caused the subsidence of a part of the Las Galletas beach promenade. The City Council took “the appropriate measures” to give “a temporary response” to the closure of the section affected by the damage, turning the TF-66 into a one-way entrance to Las Galletas, the Consistory said in a statement.
The mayor of Arona, José Julián Mena, points out that it is “extremely important” that the work to be carried out by the Cabildo “begins as soon as possible.” «A week has already passed since the collapse of the Paseo de Las Galletas, and the start of the school year is just around the corner, so we ask the island corporation for speed. The residents of Las Galletas and their business fabric cannot wait any longer, “he concluded.
