Although the works were planned for late last year, was this week when they have begun the demolition of which was for many years the Maritime station de Baleària, in which passengers had access to the ticket offices and waiting rooms of the ships bound for the Balearic Islands.
The machines have already demolished part of the building, which will be removed in its entirety to make way for the new promenade of the port of Dénia, a pedestrian promenade that will connect this part of the port with the raset.
The main objective of this intervention is to continue the progressive modernization that is being imposed on the harbor, recovering unit area from the edge of the road to the sea.
With these works is intended to give priority to pedestrians and to value the fish market, improving access and linking it to walk.
The parking be located next to road traffic and mark the separation of pedestrian areas and road traffic also unifying the asphalt pavement. Bicycles, meanwhile, will have a path parallel to the road to avoid crossing with pedestrians.
The walk will feature small wooded masses formed by tamarinds, lagunarias, Aleppo pines and palm trees provide shade along the promenade in strategically chosen locations.
The lighting will focus on four points, with galvanized poles with adjustable spots located within the walk but far from the sea. It will be soft lighting in the pedestrian area that will not disturb or dazzle moored boats. The walk will also include a lighted bollards, which also play a role in protection against pedestrian traffic.
The first section of the works, from the old building of Baleària up to the auction, will be carried out by the company Varadero Port Dénia, which currently manages the moorings of the yachts of the port, in an estimated time of four months. The second section will be carried out by the company Marina El Portet Dénia, in charge of the exploitation of the "El Portet" area, and it is estimated that it will take two months to carry it out.
The Councilor for Infrastructure, Isabel Bonig, announced that work will begin in September and will be completed before the end of the year.
