Formentera unlocks nearly €100k for upgrades and refitting of fitness facilities

pista-es-cap-1jFormentera’s sport and island services departments report that in recent months roughly one hundred thousand euros have gone to improving and redesigning sport and fitness infrastructure around the island.

The largest investment came in just shy of €36,000 and involved the multi-modular sport pitches in Es Cap. Work included the installation of a new fence, a separation barrier between the pitch and bleachers, remote-controlled lighting and dustbins, not to mention fresh coats of paint on bleachers and removal of invasive vegetation. Sport councillor Paula Ferrer called the Es Cap upgrades “crucial” and said they would alleviate traffic at Antoni Blanc fitness centre.

Replacing the dehumidifying heat pump

Nearly €19,000 in upgrades went to the municipal pool, where crews cleaned and water-proofed the cover. Ferrer pointed out that plans were already under way to put to tender the replacement of the dehumidifying heat pump and to correct heating issues, the goal being to have the pool back in working order within the first quarter of the year.

Work at the municipal football pitch carried a price-tag of over €14,000 and saw crews mark out a new parking area, while a newly purchased handrail awaits installation.

More than €26,000 went into upgrades at the padel courts in Sant Francesc, where the foundation was repaired plus new turf and LED lighting installed.

Other work

Crews also performed various work elsewhere, like at the School of Music, where an air conditioning unit as well as two stereo systems (one stationary and one portable) were installed for less than €17,000.

A dishwasher was installed for €7,000 in Sa Miranda nursery and a newly installed  electrical panel at the Sa Senieta car park (price tag: €3,500) will be used for events in the festival tent.
