Improvements to public space speed up with a series of works along the coast

From now until July, ten roads and pavements will get new paving, with urban furniture, handrails, decks and stairs in various locations in the districts of Ciutat Vella and Sant Martí also to be renewed. The work is part of the Comprehensive Maintenance Plan, within the context of the broader Pla Endreça, which should entail 3,000 works over the next four years.

A renewed Rambla de Catalunya

The package of measures includes paving along the coast, in addition to the resurfacing work in Rambla de Catalunya, which is currently and progress and should be completed on 26 May.
