Mijas has new material on its beaches; specifi cally, eight new watchtowers and 80 metres of wooden walkway to access its shores. This is the new equipment for the coast that was inspected by the councillor responsible for the department, José Carlos Martín (C’s), last Monday 27th and to which two buggies will be added, which will arrive in the municipality next week.All this new material represents an investment of 105,000 euros from the Plan for Safe Beaches of the Regional Government in Andalusia (Junta). For the councillor for Beaches, these new acquisitions, together with those purchased with municipal funds, place the coast of Mijas “at the head regar-ding security at the Andalusian and national level”. “We are making all our resources and services available to the residents to provide all the guarantees to users”, said Martin to add that “Mijas has not just covered the recommendations of the health authorities against coronavirus but has gone further by implementing each of the measures and developing other innovative actions. A new commitment of the council will be to continue to ins-tall watchtowers on the beaches, the same as the eight that are now to be seen along the coast, which “are much more comfortable for the professionals who provide their services and offer, thanks to their height and characteristics, optimum visibility to maintain control over the beaches. The idea of the department is to continue next year replacing the old towers with these more modern and functional models.On the other hand, the wooden walkways are thick and strong to be able to cope with the weather conditions throughout the year and better resist the logical deterioration of this type of paths near the sea. Finally, the two buggies will help to provide “a more effi cient service as they can move with ease over the sand and therefore reach any incident sooner”, assured municipal sources.
