The ports of Eivissa and Formentera today, Friday 8 October, hosted the annual meeting of the 10th Master's Degree in Port Management and Planning and Intermodality of Puertos del Estado.
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) completed the works on the promenade of the port of Alcúdia that extend the pedestrian promenade to the Maritime Station. This intervention included the urban improvement of the sections assigned to the public port area of the streets Teodor Canet and Gabriel Roca, through a tender for a project amounting to 802,968.25 euros and with a duration of seven months.
The project consisted of improving the urbanization of Teodor Canet and Gabriel Roca streets in the port of Alcúdia with the widening of pedestrian pavements, improvements in street fixtures, road signs, incorporation of trees and a new rainwater and lighting network system adapted to the current needs of this new promenade.
Another important aspect is the elimination of traffic lanes, converting the one-way road to the commercial port and building a roundabout that will direct traffic between the Commercial Docks and the Maritime Station. There is also a plan to make use of the side of the street bordered by the sea to park vehicles along the kerb.
The total area of intervention for this urban improvement is 4,800 square metres.
Joint action with the City Council
This action by the APB had the support of the Alcúdia City Council, which has already taken charge of the urban improvement of its part of the project on Teodor Canet Street. Reducing the speed of traffic in this area, improving street fixtures and reducing vehicle noise are the measures that will be carried out to enhance the tourist amenities and the pedestrian promenade throughout the year.
