dunes natural telephone poles park

Telephone poles in Dunes Natural Park
Radio Sintonia:

La Oliva demands that Telefónica remove telephone poles in the Dunes Natural Park.

In an ongoing effort to preserve the beauty and biodiversity of the Dunes Natural Park, the City Council of La Oliva has expressed its concern and demanded an immediate response from Telefónica regarding the dismantling of telephone poles that cross this valuable natural environment. This is what the institution says in a press release sent to Radio Sintonía.

In the note, Isaí Blanco expresses the municipality's concern about the lack of action on the part of the telecommunications company, pointing out that, despite a year and a half of requests, the response received has not been satisfactory. "We have transferred our concerns to the corresponding bodies, including the Ministry of the Island Council of Fuerteventura and the Ministry of Ecological Transition of the Government of the Canary Islands, but unfortunately, Telefónica has not taken measures to remove the poles," Blanco said.

For his part, the Councilor for New Technologies, Julio Santana, highlighted the visible and environmental damage caused by the laying of poles in the Natural Park. "We have observed pieces of wire and plastic scattered on the sand, affecting not only the aesthetics of the park, but also endangering the vegetation, such as rockers and Canarian palm trees," Santana said. In addition, it has been reported that damage has also been caused to a bus with tourists, thus increasing the severity of the consequences derived from these irresponsible actions."

The City Council of La Oliva has proposed a concrete solution to this problem: the burial of the cable parallel to the existing road between Corralejo and the hotels of Grandes Playas. This alternative would not only eliminate the visual impact, but would also contribute to the preservation of the natural environment and avoid the continuous pollution caused by the waste from the current power lines.

In the absence of an adequate response from Telefónica, Mayor Isaí Blanco concluded: "It is imperative that the company assumes its environmental responsibility and immediately proceeds with the removal of these poles. The preservation of our Natural Park is a priority for La Oliva, and we do not rule out taking additional measures to ensure its protection."
