End of September started works for the new project that that will improve mobility and the connection between these urban centres and will benefit not only the local population but also the hundreds of tourists who visit this area,”
Tenerife Cabildo has explained to the residents of San Miguel and Granadilla the details of the work that will connect the beach of San Blas with Los Abrigos and the promenade of San Miguel.
This actioninvolves an investment of 1.2 million euros.
“This is a project that will improve mobility and the connection between these urban centres and will benefit not only the local population but also the hundreds of tourists who visit this area,” said Sr. Bernabé.
The work consists of the execution of a wooden footpath with footbridges that will cross two ravines. This will include five rest areas, equipped with the corres-ponding urban furniture and canopies, as well as a viewpoint and a plaza / viewpoint in front of Los Abrigos beach.

The Mayor of San Miguel, Arturo González, expressed his satisfaction “because this project, highly demanded for years, is a reality. It is undoubtedly one of our greatest claims that will make it possible to connect the coastal area of San Miguel with the Granadilla core of Los Abrigos, through pedestrians”.
The work on the pathway progresses slowly. New bridges are now in place at each end.
The dangerous middle part has made into a zig zag.
It is now possible to see that the project will be a huge improvement and much safer.
Pictures of work in progress will be valuable.
The entire frame for the flat pathway is now in place.
We could hope that in a couple of months the work will be complete.
Today we walked the central part of the walkway. Each end has work to be completed around the Bridges. At the present pace another 2 to 3 months should see the path completed. It looks very impressive.
Yesterday we walked the almost completed center section of the walkway.
Work still needs to done at each end by the bridges and on the zig zag. At the present pace of work the completion date could be in 2/3 months.
The main pathway in middle is now almost complete. Work on the zig zag and at each by the bridges continues. At this pace 2/3 months should see completion. When finished it be a huge asset.
