- The work has focused on the maintenance and conservation of the signs and the cleaning of stone dragging occurred in the DANA
The Councillor for the Environment and Sports of Redován Town Council, Ramón López, gave an account of the recent maintenance and conservation work carried out on footpaths in the Redován mountain range. These works have been aimed at the local path SL-146 known as Los Coloraos, and have been carried out with aid granted by the Provincial Council of Alicante for the conservation and improvement of municipal sites in municipalities in the province during the 2020 year. This path “showed a significant deterioration of the horizontal and vertical signs due to atmospheric agents, a deterioration which was aggravated by the passage of the DANA in September 2019, with the consequent danger it could pose for walkers and climbers”, explained the mayor. In addition, and as Lopez has indicated, the area “presented landslides with stones and gravel in several sections of the path, still as a consequence of the strong torrential rains”.
In this way, twelve tracking and signposting posts have been replaced along the almost two kilometres of the path, as well as a direction sign and a wooden interpretation table on the summit of the mountain range “which allows the identification of the different elements of the landscape surrounding the peak of Pico del Aguila”, reported López. The cleaning of the trails has also been carried out, as well as the replacement of the steel cables to hold the walkers in the passes of La Boquera, El Escalón and El Mayoral, “which will allow the users to do this route with all the necessary safety”, added the councillor.
The actions have had a cost of 4924 euros and have been carried out through a specialised company. In addition, we have had “the invaluable collaboration of the Redován Mountain Club”, said Ramón López, as its members “are always willing to give us a hand in caring for our mountains, and the Redován Town Council would like to thank them for their help in always having this natural environment, which belongs to all the people of Redován, ready and cared for so carefully”.
