Public works improvements in Es Pujols

Foto obres Es Pujols 2016The Formentera Council's Office of Infrastructure has announced the completion of improvement work in the town of Es Pujols. The CiF's councillor in charge of infrastructure, Rafael González, reported that aside from general improvements on carrer Aigua Dolça, the road was lengthened by 60 metres in order to link it with carrer Fonoll Marí. The councillor said the change would create routes for vehicles entering and exiting the plaça d'Europa parking lot.

Additionally, the project gave Es Pujols the island's first urban-area bike lanes. (Previously, the only such lanes were located at roundabouts and along the highway.) The changes were carried out respecting surrounding vegetation and, as Councillor González was proud to highlight, no pine trees were felled in the process. According to the councillor, this first improvements push constitutes an example of the kinds of initiatives the CiF infrastructure office hopes to implement across Es Pujols. The current works project had a total cost of 1,135,615.24 euros.

Plaça Europa and carrer Rocaplana
González took the opportunity to point out another recently-completed addition: a landscaped, shaded area at plaça Europa aimed at turning the Es Pujols square into “a place for tourists and locals alike to take in the surroundings and get a respite from the hot sun.” What's more, cracked tiles were replaced along carrer Rocaplana and the street's pavement was reset. Traffic along the arterial will now be exclusively restricted to pedestrians. That project had a total cost of 113,778.33 euros.
