The works on the Golden Mile in Playa de las Américas should be finished this month. Tenerife President Carlos Alonso says that the improvements and remodeling of Avenida de las Americas will generate greater economic activity, and employment, throughout the area. The president was visiting the area with the Canarian Government’s Director General of Trade and Consumer Affairs, Angeles Palmero, the Cabildo tourism minister, Alberto Bernabe, and the mayor of Arona, José Julián Mena.
The works, which have involved an investment of over €4m, have been co-financed by the Canarian Government, the Tenerife Cabildo, Arona Ayuntamiento, and local businesses. They have involved the creation of a pedestrian priority zone, road resurfacing, widened pavements, and better accessibility for the public and local businesses by the elimination of the rows of parking spaces. The entire lighting and drainage systems have also been renewed.
