The International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) has designated 1 July of each year as World Marine Aids to Navigation Day.
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has put the construction of a walkway at the Port of Mahon out to tender. The new infrastructure will connect Cala Corb and Moll d’en Pons, saving the cliff that currently impedes crossing from one side to the other along the coast.
The project envisages the construction of a 2.5 m wide and 400 m long pontoon that will connect the two docks, located in the municipality of es Castell, at 1.2 m above sea level, which will be used for the mooring of small length sports vessels.
Furthermore, it will also serve as a pedestrian path on which to go from one area to the other and it will be fitted out with wooden street furniture and a lighting system.
The estimated construction deadline is eight months. The tender budget is €2,490,822.75 and the tender submission period ends on 17 July 2018.
