The Seville City Council, through the Este-Alcosa-Torreblanca district and in coordination with the Urban Planning and Environment Management, has promoted a new program of works to guarantee accessibility, improve pedestrian mobility and eliminate architectural barriers in the neighborhood from Las Lumbreras, in Torreblanca. These actions, which are part of the investment plan in the neighborhoods and the reactivation of the city, are carried out at the intersection with the A-92 service road with an investment of 20,000 euros.
This new project coordinated by the Este-Alcosa-Torreblanca district contemplates the adaptation of the sidewalks to the universal accessibility regulations, with improvements in the sidewalk and lowering of the curbs. In general, the works remove the architectural barriers in the existing fords by demolishing the sidewalk and the affected curb and the subsequent placement of a new flush curb and tactile paving.
“With this intervention, the city government advances in the fulfillment of the objectives of the universal accessibility plan approved by the Plenary and we respond to the residents of this neighborhood. It is an investment that guarantees mobility especially to people with diversity functional or elderly in this neighborhood. For this reason, in this year 2020 it has been a priority in investment planning “, explained the delegate of the Este-Alcosa-Torreblanca district, Adela Castaño, who has visited the works together with residents of the area.
This action is part of the municipal investment plan launched in all districts during this year 2020 with the aim of contributing to the economic and social reactivation and the promotion of employment. Within this investment program, more than nine million euros are being executed in the Este-Alcosa-Torreblanca district with projects such as the complete reorganization of Las Torres, the interventions in Amatista or Jakarta streets, the paving of the Palace Glorieta of Congresses or the action in Mayor Luis Uruñuela.
