| These actions are framed in the Sustainable and Integrated Urban Development Strategy (EDUSI) 'Las Torres Conecta' | The mayor of Las Torres de Cotillas, Joaquín Vela Fernández, and the first deputy mayor, María Ángeles Fernández Fernández, visited the Carmen neighborhood of the municipality a few days ago to review the latest improvement works carried out in the environment.
Among them, the asphalting of all the roads of the neighborhood, the improvement of the security of the children's park located between Caravaca street and Conde de Romanones street, or the replacement of trees on different roads. The asphalting works have had a budget of more than 107,000 euros and have been carried out on Totana, Lorca, Yecla, Cieza, Conde de Romanones streets (from Cartagena to Totana) and Parcelas (from Cartagena to Avenida del Trabajo).
With them all existing horizontal signs and speed retarders have been restored to adapt them to current regulations.
In addition, the pavement on Yecla Street, where trees have been cut down and stumps (which have been replaced), has been repaired, and a section of sidewalk has been extended to continue the pedestrian route towards the San Jorge industrial estate. In the children's play area, the safety of small users has been improved with an amount of nearly 32,000 euros.
To do this, an elastic base floor has been installed to cushion falls and an antistatic artificial grass with sports fiber, similar to that used in other municipal parks in the town, and a fence has been placed to prevent children from going out onto the adjacent vials. More projects Other projects scheduled for the near term are the improvement of street lighting, the change of all urban furniture or the comprehensive arrangement of the park on Calle Yecla.
"We also have several projects and workshops for integration and coexistence, and the expansion of the social center," says the mayor, who was also accompanied on this visit by the president of the neighborhood residents' association, Verónica Morcillo De la Torre, and the Councilor for Mobility, Francisco José Caravaca Bravo. This plan projected by the municipal government team is framed in the 'Las Torres Conecta' Sustainable and Integrated Urban Development Strategy (EDUSI), which is 80% co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER), through the Multi-regional Operational Program of Spain 2014-2020.
This action is framed in the line of action 07 called "Urban regeneration plan and social and labor integration in disadvantaged areas".
