The Canarian Vice President and Minister of Finance, Budgets and European Affairs, Roman Rodriguez (New Canary Islands)visited this Tuesday The rosary to publicize, together with the mayor, Scholastic Gil, these four projects financed with regional investment. “Eighteen months ago we promised to carry out these four actions and today we are here to present them,” remarked Román Rodríguez.
«The new Health Center of La Esperanza which, without a doubt, lives up to its name because it has been waiting no less than 14 years to see the light. It is in tender for 2.6 million euros and will be a health infrastructure for the next 20 or 25 years. There is also already a land reserve forecast for the day when its extension becomes necessary. With this initiative, justice is done to a historical demand and the commitment that we acquired in his day with the mayor is also strictly fulfilled, “explained the vice president.
The creation of a new doctor’s office to replace the current one is a historical demand of the municipality, since the existing facility is more than 30 years old and has numerous deficiencies. The new medical center will be built on a 650 square meter plot ceded by the City Council of El Rosario to the Government of the Canary Islands. The municipality has also acquired a plot of 598 square meters located next to the site, to allow its expansion.
The new building, which will have a total area of 1,025 square meters, will be distributed over three floors connected with a stairway and a stretcher lift. It will have an Admission and Administrative Management area, adult care areas with six queries and a pediatric area, among other services.
“18 months ago we committed to developing these four performances and today we are here to make them known”
The second project, the Leoncio Rodriguez School, will allow to put an end to the notable deficiencies of this property. “Now we respond to issues of accessibility, security and sanitation of the building because it was something of justice,” Rodríguez stressed. The City Council of El Rosario planned to publish the tender for these works yesterday, thanks to a transfer of 350,000 euros issued by the Ministry of Education. The sanitation of the building’s residual waters will be guaranteed; Two elevators will be installed that will put an end to the current architectural barriers, and the pavement of the old building and the sports fields will be replaced. The execution period for this action is about eight months.

The procedures to tender this work are already underway and, according to Scholastic Gil, will be “essential to avoid discharges into the El Chorrillo ravine.” The separating networks of the area and a new pumping station (EBAR) will be built.
The Ministry of Ecological Transition, Fight against Climate Change and Territorial Planning has already granted a direct subsidy to the City Council of El Rosario to carry out the entirety of this work. The EBAR is projected in the lower area of the nucleus of Lomo Pelado, next to the Camino del Centro. It will not only collect the water from this neighbourhood, but also from Las Rosas, evacuating all of it to the general collector of the La Esperanza-Llano del Moro highway.
The projected network is of a separative type and It will be built on Elías Vera, Vista La Huerta, Bethencourt, Camino El Centro, Perera, Camino Las Lagunetas, Doctor Caldera, Camino El Chorro, Las Rosas and Camino Preventorio streets.. The estimated duration of the works is 24 months.
A new access to the sea
On the Tabaiba coast, in a deteriorated and unused area, another work “with a very low impact, respectful and adapted to the environment, will be developed in order to recover that space so that citizens have access to the sea in a privileged area for the practice of diving”, according to Roman Rodriguez. In addition, he recalled that “the award of the work is being finalized, the final price of which will be around 1.2 million euros and will be managed directly by the Department of Ecological Transition of the Government of the Canary Islands.”

The vice president insisted that “the four commitments that we acquired just a year and a half ago with the mayor are already fully channeled and will be resolved satisfactorily with proposals and projects that arise from the municipality itself. We are going to continue betting on the cooperation of the Government with the municipalities because they are administrations with more capacity for transformation and for interpreting citizen interests».
