The works have involved the remodeling of Child Street and a section of Hospital Street with an investment of around half a million euros and consisted mainly of paving the entire driveway with granite, high strength, the installation of new sewage networks, water and telecommunications, and the location of a new furniture.
The new streetlights have been anchored to the facades of buildings, so as not to detract the street space, and planted some trees with its walkable alcorques to not disturb the passage of pedestrians.
It also has deployed a dozen banks broad, unsupported, to be used in any of its sides, and specially designed for easy maintenance.
The refurbishment has also seen the installation of new litter bins and planters to beautify sixteen new pedestrian area.
This new area will be able to move only the vehicles of residents who access their parking spaces and, with appropriate restrictions, loading and unloading they provide to businesses in the area.
The vehicles on these streets now have as main alternatives Colon Street, the old round trip and North and South.
