WORK TO FINALLY RESUME ON PLAYA FLAMENCA HIGH SCHOOL
By Staff Reporter / 2010-06-18 13:24:38
The work on the new high school at Playa Flamenca will restart in July. Building work has been on hold since September of 2009, with no explanation as to why. When the Town Hall announced that work would resume they gave no reasons for the delay.
It is now clear that the new school will not be completed for the new term in September, but that pupils will have to wait yet another year in crowded conditions. It is hoped the new installations will be completed for the 2011-2012 school year. At present only the foundations have been lain. The Town Hall handed over a plot of some 25,000 square metres next to the Alicante –Cartagena motorway, for the school. The proximity to the motorway may have been the reason for the hold up in the work. The cost of the building work will be 7.9 million euros, and it is being built by Bruesa Construccion, who were awarded the contract in August 2008. It was supposed to have been completed within 18 months.
So in September pupils at IES Playa Flamenca will have to put up with the make-shift cabins once again, which are situated on a dry river bed which floods every time there are very heavy rains.
