The socialist candidate for alcantarillera alcantarillera, Francisco Saavedra, has delivered to the President of the Government of Spain, Pedro Sánchez, a letter asking him to solve the problems caused by the railway at two points in the municipal area of â€‹â€‹Alcantarilla: the zone of Interview and the neighborhood of Las Tejeras.
Saavedra was able to hand out the letter to Sanchez thanks to the private audience organized by the candidate for the presidency of the Autonomous Community, Diego Conesa, and the Calasparra councilor, José Vélez, twenty minutes before the meeting offered by the chief on Saturday of the Central Executive in the Calasparreña bullring.
During the meeting, the candidate for mayor explained to the President of the Government that on May 10 he met in Madrid, with deputy Pedro Saura and with experts from the Ministry of Development to raise two questions.
The first, speed up the bidding times for the Sewer and Javalí Nuevo variant to start during the next legislature the work that will take the Chinchilla-Cartagena railway line out of the Entrevías area and end the division of the urban center.
The second question, focused on getting the Development to review the project of arrival of the AVE and the Mediterranean Corridor to the neighborhood of Las Tejeras, lowering to the maximum the height of the concrete caisson that is planned, with the aim of preventing the neighborhood from being isolated of the urban framework.
"Mr. Sánchez wanted to give you a document to know the historic problem of Sewer that I hope that during the next term will be resolved," Francisco Saavedra said to the Prime Minister as he handed the letter with the railroad demands of the town.
In the letter, the candidate exposes Pedro Sanchez that "this city of almost 42,000 inhabitants has more than four decades divided by the railroad having registered several fatal accidents." There were already several projects to eliminate the train from the center of the city, but due to the Laziness of the Popular Party governments have been prescribing the environmental reports and to date the situation is not resolved. "
And it continues warning of the negative impact that the current project of the Mediterranean Corridor and the High Speed â€‹â€‹will have for the 1,770 residents in the Las Tejeras neighborhood: "The layout of the Mediterranean Corridor that passes through this town believed that it would solve the problem, but not He does it completely, the problem moves him to another part of the town, to the Las Tejeras neighborhood, the city being divided again. "
The socialist candidate asks the head of the central executive to intercede so that the Ministry and Adif review the arrival of the AVE and the Corridor to Las Tejeras.
"As the project is not yet executed, I understand that we have time to solve it, adopting the appropriate measures by ADIF to burrow some 500 meters that would avoid leaving an entire neighborhood isolated from the urban center. that has made such project dislate, especially when there have been 24 years of popular government to have made a good layout, but the reality is that, if that is done with a PSOE government in this town and a national government also PSOE, We are delegitimized for not listening to the just demands of a people, who from a distance have not been able to understand, "reflects the Socialist Francisco Saavedra in the letter.
Therefore, in the letter warns the Government of Spain that if elected mayor, if you do not review the project of the AVE for Sewer, will support all actions undertaken by the Platform The Train Out of Sewer and the Neighborhood Association of Las Tejeras.
"If we won the elections I would have no other choice than to defend what I understand to be justice for this people, which is nothing more than doing things well and that infrastructures, instead of harming neighbors, serve to make them the easiest life".
During the brief hearing that Saavedra held with Sanchez in the bullring of Calasparra, the President of the Government advised the mayoral candidate for sewer who debuts in municipal politics at age 65, who "defends the interests of his neighbors and It will do very well. "
Invitation to the May Festivities
The meeting, which was also attended by the former Mayor of Alcantarilla, Pedro Manuel Toledo, ended with a family photo and the presentation of a May Festival program to the chief executive to invite him to attend the colorful parade of floats in 2019 organized by the Federation of Peñas Festeras, with the objective that the Moncloa knows the importance of the celebrations in the Region for which the PSOE de Alcantarilla wishes to be declared of national tourist interest.
"I hope that next year, you can go to the Fiestas de Mayo invited by me, as mayor, and by Diego Conesa, as president of the Autonomous Community," Francisco Saavedra told Pedro Sánchez.
