Council will begin work on expanding the rain drainage
network in Thiviers next Monday 24th August, a project
that will open up gutters and channel rainwater runoff
in Avenida Arquitecto Urteaga and Calle Historiador
Escolano. It represents a municipal investment
of some 69,933 euros and will be carried out by Blas
Antequera SL over an execution period of two months.
Department of Public Works explained that the work will
affect both traffic flow and access to driveways and
parking since a central ditch will be dig on both sides.
Therefore the project has been divided into three phases
to minimize inconvenience and access problems for residents
and drivers. It is expected that work will begin in
Calle Historiador Escolano up to its junction with Avenida
Arquitecto Urteaga; the second phase of the work will
be carried out from that junction along Avenida Arquitecto
Urteaga to the junction with Carrer Vicente Boix; the
third phase will cover the section from Carrer Vicente
Boix to Carrer Alameda.
project aims to solve the problems of the accumulation
of rain water that occasionally affects some sections
of these roads and forms part of the 'small urban projects'
that solves problems that affect the daily life of residents
and improves the safety of public spaces.
