  Remodelling of Avenida Virgen de La Peña, Caleta
Posted by: TamaraEnLaPlaya - 10-05-2022, 08:10 PM - Forum: Cars, cabs & roads - No Replies

Radio Sintonia:

More than four million euros for the remodeling of Avenida Virgen de la Peña.

The City Council of Antigua in extraordinary plenary session held this Tuesday, May 10 in the morning, and chaired by the mayor, Matías Peña García, resolves to approve the project of Remodeling of the Virgen de La Peña Avenue and delegate the powers to the mayor to expedite the bidding of new projects.

 

Both points are approved despite coinciding in their vote CC and PP, abstaining from the project of Remodeling of the Virgen de La Peña Avenue in the second phase of Caleta de Fuste and voting against the delegation in the mayor of powers that allow to expedite the bidding of the projects to be executed.

The delegation to the mayor of the competence to approve the work projects when they are not yet foreseen in the budgets, that is, Matías Peña clarifies, while proceeding to include them, allows to accelerate the drafting and bidding of these projects. Taking advantage of the regulatory framework of Law 7/1985 regulating the Bases of Local Regime. Among other aspects, it means that if before a project had to go through two plenary sessions twice, first to approve the project and then the work file, now it will only be necessary once for the approval of the file, speeding up its publication and subsequent tender.
"The other point of great interest, the approval of the remodeling project of the Virgen de La Peña Avenue with a municipal investment of 4,128,905.05 euros," explains the mayor, "means promoting the contracting of all the work services that come and the important improvement in a main road in the second phase of Caleta de Fuste", and adds, Matías Peña that in the coming days this project will go out to tender, including in his report all the favorable reports that he needs from the Technical Office and other departments involved, for its immediate execution.

Vehicle control due to intrusion in the taxi sector in Puerto del Rosario.

This Tuesday, May 3, agents of the Local Police of Puerto del Rosario, in coordination with technicians of the Ministry of Transport of the Cabildo of Fuerteventura, have carried out in the municipality several routine actions aimed at the control of vehicles intended for the transport of dangerous goods, perishable products, as well as a control over their documentation, the technical conditions, the arrangement of the load and the weight control of heavy vehicles, in addition to the fact that, during the same day, a control of vehicles has also been carried out for intrusion in the taxi sector of the municipality.

 

These last prevention measures are carried out by the Local Police, which, in collaboration with the Department of Transport of the City of Puerto del Rosario directed by Domingo Curbelo, come to respond to the demands from different sectors of groups of taxi drivers and transporters due to the intrusion in the municipality of unauthorized vehicles in the different sectors affected.

  Walking through the bowels of the volcano!
Posted by: TamaraEnLaPlaya - 28-04-2022, 08:07 PM - Forum: Things to do on the island - No Replies

Radio Sintonia:

There are 4 editions of Geolodía that the island of Fuerteventura will have under its belt with the celebration, on May 8, of Geolodía Fuerteventura 2022. The itinerary will take place in the Vega Circular Complex of Río Palmas. There will be a walking tour called 'Walking through the bowels of the volcano', about 6 kilometers, along Vega Río Palmas, ending the excursion in the middle of the afternoon.
 
Along the way you can see the plutonic rocks that formed the magmatic chambers that fed a large stratovolcano that existed in this area of the Island about 19 million years ago.
The places of this activity will be limited. Registration will remain open until May 3 or until the quota of places is completed. To participate in the excursion it is necessary to register on the following page WEB: http://www.cabildofuer.es/cabildo/areas-tematicas/medio-ambiente/.
The motto of Geolodía 22 is 'Look what you step on', since the objective of the day is to show that what we have under our feet conditions our lives.
Geolodía 22 is coordinated by the Geological Society of Spain (SGE) and has the collaboration of the Spanish Association for the Teaching of Earth Sciences (AEPECT), as well as the Geological and Mining Institute of Spain (IGME), Repsol and the International Association of Sedimentologists (IAS). In the case of Geolodía Fuerteventura 2022, there is the collaboration of the Ministry of Environmental Sustainability of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, directed by Lola García, the Department of Animal Biology, Edaphology and Geology of the University of La Laguna and the Cultural Chair "Telesforo Bravo" of the University of La Laguna.

  Las Peñitas, Rural Park of Betancuria
Posted by: TamaraEnLaPlaya - 28-04-2022, 07:47 PM - Forum: Environmental - No Replies

Radio Sintonia:

The radio visits one of the most special and beautiful places in Fuerteventura, "Las Peñitas", a protected place since, remember, it is within the Rural Park of Betancuria. We are accompanied by the Minister of Environmental Sustainability of the Cabildo, Lola García for whom "we have to believe and take care of the paradise that is Fuerteventura".

We are precisely where, according to specialists, the oldest specimens of palm trees in the Canary Islands are located. Precisely the Cabildo of Fuerteventura has commissioned a diagnosis of the most important palm groves of the island since they are in frank retreat. In this sense, it can be observed for years how the oldest specimens are dying.
To avoid this situation as much as possible, the counselor details the action plan that begins with a diagnosis to later move to a coordinated work with municipalities, private companies and technicians. For the head of Sustainability "we are facing a long-term project that will prioritize natural environments, but where actions are also planned in urban areas"
Environmental education program "Know to Protect"
"Knowing to Protect", this is the name of the project that brings this and other places of Fuerteventura closer to the population, to, through knowledge, awaken the awareness of protection. The counselor stressed that, in addition to individual citizens, groups and associations also have a lot to say in the care of the environment, in fact more and more are working on the island and before this the council has called for subsidies to support environmental projects. "We are talking about a newly created line of grants," he recalled.
Employment
Lola García insisted on the link between the environment and employment, giving as an example the employment plans of ecological transition. More than forty unemployed people have joined the plan where workers develop for nine months different tasks for the promotion of good practices in the natural environment, educational talks and awareness.
The Sea
We end at sea, since the second edition of the Marine Litter Observatory (OBAM) program has begun, where different actions are collected within the framework of the island's climate change strategy.
García told us about a pilot project to reduce the impact of microplastics in the waters near the island. It is an innovative prototype for the collection of microplastics, which will be coupled to fishing vessels and will allow them to be collected and classified by size to be later analyzed.
To implement this tool, the OBAM calls for the collaboration of fishermen. In this way, we want to know all the requirements that the project must have so as not to interfere in its work and that it can also add some advantage or beneficial parameter for sea workers.
