The City of Dénia has convened, this morning, a press conference to inform about the state in which the beaches are currently, after almost 2 months of the devastating Gloria.
The damages, which in January were valued at € 827.000, are gradually being remembered in certain sections of the Dianense coast. Not all, because many still struggle to recover a beach that will hardly be the same as before.
To mitigate the most immediate damage and make it accessible to the bathroom and enjoy again, the City Council has decided to advance € 107.140 that will be requested, subsequently, as a grant to the Ministry of Ecological Transition.
The councilor of Beaches, Pepe Doménech, has been showing the current state of each of the beaches of our coast. Most of them already have a stamp similar to the one before the last DANA. However, there is work to be done, especially from Bovetes to La Almadrava and part of Deveses, where one of the entrances remains unusable due to a height difference of 2 meters. To this we must add the theme of pipes and lavapiés, which insist that for Easter they will not be operational.
Similarly, it looks like the viewpoint of the Cassiana Marineta, in front of the English Cemetery, will continue on foot during that holiday season. Although everything indicates that it will not be so in summer, since the project is underway to leave the walk straight, keeping the stairs and ramp, but eliminating half of it until there is no semicircle as now.
Several vehicles and workers have been, and are, increasing our coast to recover it from the devastating storm. Up to 25 people were on the busiest days, separated into teams to cover the many kilometers of beach. Thanks to this, the City Council trusts that in Holy Week the Glory is a mere memory.
