The Balearic Islands Port Authority (APB) is replacing the metal railings along the bike lane on Avenida Aldofo Suárez in the port of Palma to guarantee user safety and maintain the lane in a good state of repair. A total of 1,053 metres of railing will be renewed.
These improvement works will be carried out between the 5th and 25th of March, both inclusive. The cycle lane will remain closed during this period.
The work is divided into two sections. The first stretch covers the cycle lane from the APB building in the Moll Vell to the Cuesta del Gas. The second starts at the Cuesta del Gas and ends at the Anima Beach Palma restaurant in Portitxol.
Thicorca Herrería y Construcción S.L. was awarded the renovation project by public tender at a cost of almost €300,000.
Over the last few weeks, the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has completed the works on the Alcúdia port seafront promenade. The work involved the removal of one of the footbridges and the wooden pergola above the tourist office, which were part of this area.
By knocking down these constructions, the beach will return to its natural state prior to this project, while maintaining the uniformity of the remaining pre-existing structures.
At the same time, the second pergola in the middle of the promenade and the second footbridge at the end of the promenade have been renovated. Restoration work was also carried out on the wooden decking that runs along the promenade.
The works took three months to complete after initiation in November 2023 and were tendered out to the company Amer e Hijos S.A. for €255,000.
