The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) will today be resuming work on the promenade at the Port of Alcudia, which will be pedestrianised right up to the passenger terminal. The work was interrupted in March, by mutual agreement with the Alcudia Town Council, due to the health emergency caused by COVID-19 and the start of the tourist season.
This project includes urban improvements on the sections of the Teodor Canet and Gabriel Roca streets that are classed as port public land at a cost of €917,569 excluding VAT.
The project consists of urban development improvements on the streets Teodor Canet and Gabriel Roca in the Port of Alcudia with the widening of pavements for pedestrians, improvements in street furniture, road signs, new garden areas and a new rainwater and lighting system.
The number of lanes of traffic has also been reduced, making the road one way towards the commercial port, and a roundabout has been built that will direct vehicle traffic flows between the Commercial Quays and the Passenger Terminal. There are also plans to use the sea side of the road for parking.
The total surface area of this urban improvement project is 4,800 square metres and the work is scheduled to be completed in five months.
Joint initiative with the Town Council
This APB initiative has been coordinated with the Alcudia Town Council, which has already completed the urban improvement of the stretch of the Teodor Canet street that falls under its jurisdiction. The measures to be carried out, which include reducing traffic speed in this area, improving street furniture and reducing vehicle noise, all aim to promote tourism and encourage pedestrians to walk along the promenade all year round.
