- It is 450 metres long and four metres wide and will allow bicycles to travel in both directions to the town
The Department of Infrastructure of Redován City Council, which is headed by Ramón López, has reported on the work that the Regional Ministry of Territorial Policy, Public Works and Mobility is carrying out in the municipality to extend the CR-919 La Campaneta-Redován cycle path, with the town centre.
Until now, this area of circulation for cyclists ended at the beginning of the Avenida de la Constitución, surrounding the roundabout. Now, “and with the completion of the last 450 metres, it will allow uninterrupted traffic for the users of this means of transport”, explained the councillor, “which will allow double traffic in the three metres wide lane”. It will be four metres wide to allow two-way traffic for bicycles.
The work, which will cost approximately 170,000 euros, has been paid for by the Road Conservation Area of the Regional Ministry and is expected to be completed by mid-October. As explained by López, the development of this action also includes the installation of a separation kerb of approximately one metre, to protect road users and prevent vehicles travelling on the road from invading the cycle lane.
“We are grateful to the Regional Ministry of Public Works for the work that is being done to unify this section of cycling track with the urban centre of Redován”, said the mayor, “and which helps us as a municipality to evolve towards a cleaner environment, by committing to a sustainable means of transport such as the bicycle”, he added.
- The aids will be aimed at actions such as alleviating the effects of Covid-19 in businesses and SMEs, the economic promotion of the municipality or the protection of the natural environment of Redován, among others
The Redován City Council has received in the last days 57,390 euros from the Alicante Provincial Council in concept of subsidies. These grants are aimed at various areas, ranging from the protection of the natural environment of the municipality, the promotion of the economic activity of businesses and entrepreneurs in the municipality, treatments against the proliferation of insects or the improvement of urban gardens.
The largest amounts to a total of 39,127 euros and will be used to minimize the impact of Covid-19 in SMEs, mycropymes, small companies and professional self-employed in the municipality that suspended their activity during the state of alarm or decreased their average turnover in the months of April and May compared to the previous semester. The grant will be aimed at defraying current expenses derived from the health crisis such as rentals, requests for consultancy and advice, interest on loans requested or the rental of commercial vehicles of companies established in the municipality. The bases of the aid are in the drafting process and will be published soon so that they can be requested by the merchants of the municipality.
Another of these grants, which amounts to a total of 7,653 euros, will be divided into two lines of action: the one aimed at supporting the holding of fairs and events in the municipality, which will subsidize 58.33% of the cost of the Christmas fair last year in Redován with 7,000 euros, and another of 653 euros for its economic promotion. Thus, they will be destined to pay for 90% of the course on food handlers, allergen management and security against Covid-19, aimed at working and unemployed personnel, which will take place on October 6 in the assembly hall of the Ricardo Ruiz Poveda sociocultural center.
The Redovanense Consistory will also receive all of the aid of 4,924 euros for the maintenance and conservation of natural areas of the municipality such as the Sierra de Redován, along with 2,540 euros (68.85% of the subsidy) to carry out control treatments of Diptera insects in its municipal area. Likewise, the provincial body has also awarded 3,145 euros to the City Council, from which 90% of the amount of the installation of banks and wastebaskets in the municipal urban garden will be subsidized.
The mayor, Nely Ruiz, wanted to acknowledge the work of the City Council workers, “who are the ones who, thanks to their work and dedication, carry out the application and processing to be eligible for these grants”, as well as thanking the collaboration to the Provincial Council of Alicante with its contributions, “which will be applied to help and improve the life and environment of the people of Redova as much as possible”.
• The regulations will monitor actions in the field of urban cleanliness and other issues such as control and possession of animals, gambling and begging
• The fines for depositing waste out of containers and public spaces are up to 1.500 euros, and are up to 18.000 infractions for animal abuse
The Redován Municipal Plenary, held online on Monday, June 8th, gave the green light to the 2020 budget, approved with twelve votes in favor and one abstention from the Municipal Corporation. During this plenary session, the project for the Municipal Ordinance for Neighborhood Cleaning and Coexistence was also approved, a norm that aims to “create a normative framework with which to promote civility in the public spaces of Redován, while establishing both norms of conduct and sanctions”, has informed the mayor, Nely Ruiz. As explained by the mayor, “it was a matter of preparing legislation to regulate those points that tend to be most conflictive in coexistence between residents of a municipality, such as issues of urban cleanliness or the keeping of pets” .
The ordinance also introduces a table of sanctions that, depending on the offenses and their severity, may reach up to 1,500 euros and, in the case of abuse and animal abandonment offenses, could exceed a 18,000 euro fine.
One of the points in which they have most wanted to influence has been the need to care for and keep clean “spaces that we all enjoy, such as the parks or the recreational area of La Ermita, and to deposit the different waste in the containers and designated places for it ”, indicated the councilor for Municipal Services, Ramón López. The mayor has insisted on the prohibition of leaving belongings or debris in public spaces, “a practice unfortunately very common in some areas of the municipality,” he added, that in this new regulation they are considered serious, and that may result in fines up to 1.500 euros.
Obligation of the owners to keep the lots clean
The City Council seeks to regulate, in the same way, the correct maintenance of the private plots in Redován, “eliminating excessive vegetation and ensuring their deratization and periodic disinfection, to avoid as far as possible situations that endanger the health of the neighbors ”, added López. In this regard, the City Council already started a land plot maintenance plan last March, sending “more than a hundred letters to owners in the urban area, in order for them to clean it to keep it in an optimal state of sanitation”, has indicated José Nájar, who has explained that with this ordinance “it is intended that the owners of the plots become aware of their obligation to keep the land in optimal health and hygiene conditions”, proceeding to sanction any owner who does not comply with this obligation civic. This avoids the City Council “having to send numerous notice notices year after year, which represents a great financial outlay and work, in addition to serious damage to neighboring neighbors with very neglected land,” he added.
Other conducts regulated in this new regulation will be the prohibition of performing stunts on urban furniture, the consumption of beverages on public roads, aggressive begging attitudes or the consumption of alcohol on public roads.
On the other hand, and in the section dedicated to domestic animals, the ordinance expressly prohibits abandonment and animal abuse, forcing them to be kept “in adequate hygiene, safety and care conditions, as well as their identification and inscription in the municipal census, and also respecting the regulations for possession of dangerous animals ”, reported Nájar. The regulations include the obligation to collect and clean the pets’s feces, another of the conflictive points in the coexistence between neighbors, to avoid staining the façades of the buildings.

The City Council of Redován will improve one of the main streets of the municipality, Pascual Martínez Avenue, with a performance in the sewerage network. These works will be carried out thanks to the Vertebra Plan of the Provincial Council of Alicante, an aid that will involve an investment of 1250,000 euros.

The works come after an existing problem due to the malfunctioning of the sanitation network. A section whose network is constituted by concrete pipe in mass. This is insufficient in periods of rain, which causes jumps in the registration covers, in addition to causing clogging in the pipes themselves. This causes serious problems and poses a danger to the residents of Redován, as well as to road traffic.
The sanitary pipe to be of concrete has a coefficient of high roughness that causes sedimentation in the interior of the tubes which causes the decrease of the section of the tubes and causes clogs that increase in times of rain. The works also intend to solve the same situation of hydraulic insufficiency that suffers the sewer collector that runs along the avenue.
The works that are contemplated are the cutting and demolition of the asphalt for the subsequent excavation and thus placing the new pipes. Once the network is ready, the entire area will be tarred.
“This work is about a first phase that will be completed with other phases to completely run the entire street Pascual Martinez,” concluded Ballester.
