The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands has reported that the remodelling work on Palma’s Paseo Marítimo began on the 18th of November, one month after the contract was signed with the joint venture formed by the Mallorcan companies Melchor Mascaró, Vopsa, Urbient and Aglomsa, and the day after the act of verifying the plans was signed.
The remodelling works will consist of three execution phases, plus an initial preparation phase. This phase 0, which began in November and will last until the beginning of 2023, includes the preliminary actions necessary to start the works, such as securing access to buildings, removal of some kerbs, signposting and placement of barriers and provisional relocation of bus stops and traffic lights. Parking spaces will not be affected until after the Christmas holidays.
The APB has also announced the launch of a new Paseo Marítimo website to keep the road users, residents, businesses and society in general informed of the progress of the works and future actions that may affect them. The website is currently available only in Castellano and Catalan.
