SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Sep 10 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The president of the Cabildo de Tenerife, Pedro Martín, has demanded this Friday from Aena the development of a project with an “integral vision” for the Tenerife South airport and that it ends the enlargements “in small pieces” because it seems that it is “assembling a puzzle “that does not respond to the needs of the island.
Speaking to journalists, he commented that the island should receive the investments that correspond to it “and not wait for someone else to do badly” – referring to the stoppage of the El Prat expansion – beyond the money that be invested “in Barcelona, Madrid or Pernambuco”.
He has indicated that next week he will have a working meeting next week with representatives of Aena to guarantee that a project of great importance is undertaken and will serve for the next 20 or 25 years. “If we do not have a project for that southern airport as a whole, in the end it will not go well and we will continue to repeat what we put in pieces, pieces and pieces,” he added.
Martín has given as an example of the lack of interest in the Tenerife Sur airport that was built in the 70s and following a project that they took “running” from Seville because there was an accident in Los Rodeos. “Things cannot continue to be done that way,” he commented.
The president has commented that Aena has to have Tenerife “on the agenda”, also in the case of the Tenerife North airport, to “make decisions” about the old buildings that are inside the facilities and must be renovated.
