NEW LIGHTING IN LEVANTE
The Benidorm City Council will install new technology for the lighting of the Paseo de Levante this year. 4.5 million will be invested in two phases to renew the Levante catenary after almost 30 years since its installation, and which consists of about 4,000 light bulbs.
In its modernization plan, Benidorm will improve one of the most emblematic and busiest places in the city, the legendary Paseo de Levante. In which a new technology will be installed to completely renew its lighting system, with 30 years behind it.
The investment planned for its renovation amounts to about 4.5 million euros, although it will be completed in two phases. The famous catenary, which runs along the entire Paseo de Levante, has completed three decades and its continuous repairs made the complete change more than necessary, due to being obsolete.
Both the light points and the poles will be changed, thereby reducing both light pollution and consumption.
The Benidorm Town Hall has stressed that this change can be made thanks to the good economic situation of the city's public coffers, which have managed to lower their debt and allocated aid to the most disadvantaged families during this pandemic.
This plan is added to the other infrastructure improvements in the city of Benidorm with part of the funds saved since last year, such as the Youth Hostel, the Interpretation Center of the Séquia Mare Park, the Green Circuit of El Moralet, or the reconversion and restructuring of the spaces around the now disused Plaza de Toros, where the Municipal Library and a large Youth Center will be installed, among many other things.
All these projects will be carried out throughout this and the coming years, and are part of the Sustainable and Integrative Urban Development Strategy (EDUSI), which the tourist capital of the Costa Blanca boasts.
In addition, the installation of photovoltaic panels will be carried out in municipal buildings and facilities, with which it is intended to improve the energy efficiency of the city, thus making it even more sustainable.
