The councilor has assured that while the works are being carried out “the supply of drinking water to the residents of this street will not be interrupted.” The execution of the work has meant cutting off non-resident traffic to Avenida de San Isidro and also Avenida Príncipe de Asturias, as well as the diversion of heavy vehicles and access control by the Local Police of San Fulgencio.
