“We are working to minimise the disturbance to residents and businesses”
Adeje council is carrying out work to double the amount of public parking spaces available in La Postura, in the town.
The large parking square, in the commercial axis, is being extended to offer more parking for residents, workers and shoppers, and is being carried out by the local department of works and services under councillor Gonzalo Delgado Díaz. Parking will continue to be free in the zone, and the work will also see the entrance to the parking bay improved.
At the moment there are between 80 and 90 spaces available, and that is set to rise to 170 and will include more spaces for those with cars adapted for special mobility needs. The councillor added that the plan will see the spaces “redistributed in a way that makes parking easier and more efficient”.
La Postura is located between two of the main arterial streets for Adeje town, the Avenida de la Constitución and the Calle Piedra Redonda, carrying a high percentage of traffic to and from the centre, “and for us it is vital that we carry out this work to improve parking in the zone”, said Delgado Díaz. He added that when the work was complete “there will be a new access to the parking zone from the Avenida de la Constitución which should improve circulation and will see the Constitución and Piedra Redonda connected by a new paved area making life easier for residents”.
The works will not just benefit drivers and pedestrians but is part of an overall improvement plan for the zone, with upgrades in the green zones and trees and plants along the streets to “reduce as much as possible any visual impact the new parking may have on the image of the area”.
The council are also working to carry out the work in as short at time as possible given the high volume of traffic using the zone daily and the busy commercial life in the area. “We are working to minimise the disturbance to residents and businesses and therefore are carrying out the work in as short a time space as possible and the intention is to finish before the pre-Christmas shopping campaign which begins at the start of November”.
The councillor ended by stating that the council was continuing to work to see an improved infrastructure throughout the borough given the financial boundaries in place. That includes ongoing work on the construction of a cultural centre in La Caleta and the amplification of the municipal cemetery and the Plaza de Tijoco.
