It has taken four decades for the Torrox Town Hall to actually get round to providing sewage disposal for Urb. Amberes where 400 residents live.
The said urbanización lies between the town centre and the coast and even the Mayor, Óscar Medina (PP), can’t understand why it has taken 40 years to sort the problem out.
He said that it is one of the oldest urbanizaciones in Torrox where the most “luxurious house” are, for which reason he can’t undertand why the houses only have covered, drain-away cesspit and sewage tanks.
“It’s difficult to understand why one of the oldest urbanizaciones [built in the 60s] is not connected up to the municipal sewage system, nor has street lighting,” Mayor Medina said.
The work that will now be carried out (included within the Plan de Concertación de 2022) has a budget of 312,741 euros; 20,000 of which the Town Hall will finance and the rest will be picked up by the Provincial Council.
Smarttech System, S.L. was awarded the job contract thanks to a pledge to provide work for six, unemployed local residents for the duration of the task, which is projected to take two months and 20 days.
As this urbanización now lies within the responsibility of the Town Hall, it must provide the residents with all the infrastructure that the rest of the urbanizaciones have.
