9th May 2014
work is being carried out on the steel net structures
which provide protection from falling rocks and stones
above several coves and beaches along the coast of Jávea,
essential work that will cost some 15,000 euros.
by the Department of Environment and Department of Beaches,
technicians have been specifically working on the
triple twist mesh that has protected the beach at Granadella
for some ten years. After inspection, it was determined
that the mesh has suffered over time and had been torn
open in places so had to be replaced and re-anchored
by stainless steel pegs. With the Department of Environment
deciding to extend the protection to the second cove
in the area, a total of 300 square metres is being
installed or replaced.
specialised company has been brought in to attend to
the wire protection since the work involved requires
technicians to lower themselves down the cliff-face
to reach the mesh that has been attached to its surface.
The task will take several days to complete.
Town Hall will also be addressing the protective dynamic
mesh system above the access road to Cala Ambolo. This
is a different system that was installed in 2012 which
has been designed to catch much larger rocks on a far
more unstable cliff face that suffered constant landslides.
All the debris will be removed followed by a complete
overhaul of the system. However, despite this work,
access to the beach - Jávea's only designated
naturist beach - will remain prohibited for safety purposes
(it was formally closed in 2006) and those who do decide
to make their way down to this wonderful secluded
cove will have to do so at their own risk as the Ayuntamiento
will refuse to be liable for any injury or damage that
is suffered whilst passing through the area.
