CLEAN-UP OPERATION - LET THE CLEANERS DO THEIR JOB

javeamigos.com | AFTER THE STORM: THE CLEAN-UP OPERATION CONTINUES

As the clean-up operation of the aftermath of storm Gloria continues, the council has implored that curiousity is kept in check and calls on the collaboration of residents to respect areas that have been taped off where heavy machinery is being worked. Already large numbers of people have been arriving on the coast to inspect the aftermath of the storm and to take photos but this is only complicating and delaying the clean-up operation which we are all interested in finishing as soon as possible.

Council workers have been working hard along an entire strip of coast from the port to the Arenal to clear away debris and clean the promenades and roads so that they can be re-opened as soon as possible. Whilst work on the coastal road was able to start almost as soon as was feasible, the clearing of Avenida Marina Española and the port promenade was delayed due to the continuing intense nature of the sea just a few metres away.

The coastal road of Avenida Mediterráneo has been worked on almost solidly since Tuesday with a total of nine diggers and trucks removing several tons of stones from the road surface and piling them back onto the seaward side of the road ready to be laid out once again to restore the popular Montañar bathing areas. After the removal of these stones, the road has had to be cleared of sand, pebbles and other detritus as well as standing water before it can be re-opened. In addition, workers have been clearing away sand, stones and seaweed from the promenades before washing away the residue so that they can be safely re-opened.

The workforce at CESPA, the municipal cleaning contractors, has been strengthened with a dozen extra workers which have been specifically-assigned to the storm clean-up operation in addition to the 16 employees from the municipal works brigade and 9 employees from the municipal garden brigade; these hard-working people have been working in shifts to try and restore Xàbia to some sense of normality as soon as possible.

Mayor José Chulvi has taken personal charge of the entire operation, fully aware of the impact of the effects of the storm on both residents and businesses which have suffered particular damage from the force of the waves which smashed into the coast on Monday. Several businesses, bars and restaurants along the port and Arenal promenades have seen significant damage to windows and terraces which needs to be repaired, cleaned and prepared before re-opening. Several local companies have already come forward such as window company Aluminios y PVC Vallés which has offered to repair or replace blinds and windows at cost price and sail-makers Valeria A-Sails, who manufacture and repair sails, awnings, covers and uphostelry for businesses, homes and boats, and have also offered to try to assist as much as possible with replacements at cost price.

In the historic centre, which saw some of the strongest gusts of the storm, the authorities have re-opened Plaza Celestino Pons after it was closed when a strong gust of wind ripped away the clock face of the bell tower which fell onto the roof on the communion chapel and then onto a parked car. The regional fire service has been on hand to clear away the rubble that was left on the roof and to inspect the opening in the bell tower where only the shaft and clock hands remain. The crew removed all loose items which could pose a risk to pedestrians before the square could be re-opened.

Actualización: la operación de limpieza continúa
 

El Ayuntamiento de Xàbia sigue trabajando a pleno rendimiento para que la franja litoral recupere la normalidad tras el temporal de principios de semana. Se está actuando ya desde primera hora en el paseo del Arenal y de La Grava, aunque la fuerza del mar dificultaba todavía esta mañana el trabajo en Avenida Marina Española.

Tanto ayer como hoy se ha movilizado 9 máquinas (entre palas y camiones) para retirar las toneladas de piedras que invaden la Av Mediterráneo (y que se está acopiando allí mismo para regenerar las zonas de baño del Montañar) como para limpiar de arena, piedras y algas los paseos marítimos.

También se ha reforzado con 12 operarios extra la plantilla habitual de la empresa Cespa y que están específicamente dedicados a estas tareas, además de los 16 trabajadores de la brigada municipal de obras y los 9 de la brigada de jardines que doblarán turno mañana y tarde.
El alcalde, José Chulvi, ha estado supervisando personalmente todo el dispositivo e interesándose por la situación de vecinos y empresarios que han sufrido daños por la fuerza del mar.

Desde el Ayuntamiento queremos agradecer la colaboración y comprensión de los vecinos por los inconvenientes que pueda ocasionar este operativo. Asimismo, insistimos, en que es necesario que respeten los espacios acotados donde se está trabajando con maquinaria ya que el gran número de curiosos que están acercándose a ver los estragos del temporal y a tomar fotos, está complicando la maniobrabilidad de las máquinas y retrasando las tareas de limpieza que todos estamos interesados en acabar cuanto antes.
 

Desde ayer martes por la tarde, la plaza Celestino Pons vuelve a estar abierta al tráfico. El lugar fue precintado el lunes por la mañana después de que una fuerte racha de viento arrancó la esfera del reloj del campanario, que cayó sobre un coche estacionado y el tejado anexo a la capilla de la comunión.

Bomberos del Consorcio Provincial estuvieron ayer saneando los restos de cascotes que quedaban en este tejado y revisando el lugar donde estaba el reloj en la torre del campanario, donde ahora solo queda el eje y las manecillas. Después de que los bomberos repasaran este edificio y retiraran los elementos que quedaban sueltos y que podían suponer un riesgo para los peatones, la Policía Local reabrió la plaza.
