The new General Urban Planning Plan for Alcantarilla has entered its final processing phase.
The mayor of Alcantarilla, Joaquín Buendía, met this morning with the Minister of Development and Infrastructure, José Ramón Díez de Revenga, to discuss the main projects of the municipality.
The General Plan will be provisionally approved to the Plenary of the month of March.
Subsequently, it will be publicly available for a month and once the allegations are resolved, it will be sent to the Autonomous Community to decide on its final approval.
Díez de Revenga promised to give it top priority.
Once all the procedures have been completed, it will be taken to Plenary for final approval.
The new plan will be valid for 25/30 years and includes 25 percent of land for industrial development and 35 percent for green areas and garden protection.
The current General Plan has been in effect since 1983.
The mayor also recalled that the procedures for the construction of the southern ring road are progressing at a good pace, and that the contract for the drafting of the construction project will be signed shortly, which has an execution period of six months.
This avenue, 1.8 kilometers long, will allow the closure of the perimeter ring of roads surrounding Alcantarilla, by connecting the roundabout on Santa Ana Avenue, with Poeta Muñoz Hidalgo Avenue, and Príncipe Avenue from the neighborhood of El Llano and Las Tejeras.
The meeting also discussed the status of projects that are the responsibility of the Government of Spain such as the High Speed â€‹â€‹(AVE) works passing through the Las Tejeras de Alcantarilla neighborhood, and the construction of the sewer line variant railway station Cartagena-Chinchilla, which will eliminate the roads of the city center, whose contract for the development of the informative study was signed last July between the Secretary of State for Infrastructures and the City Council, but currently there is no knowledge of Advances in neither of the two projects.
San Andres Business Park
The mayor and the counselor also visited the San Andrés Business Park, located next to the Northwest and Mediterranean motorways, and where Eurolonja is installed, the second largest fish market in the country, and the company PepsiCo with his company Alvalle Tropical, which occupies 36,000 square meters.
The park has 417,000 square meters and the urbanization works have meant a million euros.
This infrastructure has a strategic situation since it is located at the junction of the MU-30 and the Northwest motorway with the A-7, and the future connection with the Northwest Arc, which will allow direct access from the industrial park.
Buendía stressed the need for the "Government of Spain to execute the North and Northwest arches as soon as possible, which connects Alcantarilla with Archena, in order to improve communications, decongest the existing roads and give the final boost to this business park" .
The mayor and the counselor indicated that they will carry out an "exhaustive follow-up" of the development of the Northwest Arc, which the ministry has tendered in three sections, so that it does not take longer.
