the Aportugal town hall started building two urban elevators will work for Improving access between Julio Gutierrez Lumbreras Street and Urdibai Square. Consistory from Portugal has invested about half a million Euro is in execution of this project which will make Urdibai Chowk and its surroundings a point with better access, The work will last for six months. So, if the deadline is met, these lifts will start operating as early as next summer. “All of us who know Plaza Urdibai know that it has a big problem in terms of accessibility,” said Mikel Torres, the mayor of Portugalete.
When designing these two urban elevators, two options were opened to locate the elevators. On the one hand, they could have walked along the stairs that give access to the municipality of Euskaltegi, for example, while the other option was to have them placed by the La Florida group. eventually, Technicians found it more feasible to install them from the area of the La Florida group., since in order to place them on the stairs that give access to Euskaltegi, it was necessary to break the slabs of the square and required the removal of a series of parking spaces. With the lift’s location in the La Florida group, the lift will help bridge a fourteen meter high drop. The first of the urban elevators will connect Julio Gutierrez Lumbreras Street and the La Florida groupwhile The second lift will connect La Florida Group and Urdibai Square at the height of the house. and will provide access to a ramp that connects this square to the area of Los Llanos. Torres commented, “In this way, with these two elevators we not only connect Julio Gutierrez Lumbreras Street and the La Florida conglomerate to Urdibai Square, but we also improve the accessibility of other areas of the city.”
The works that began barely ten days ago are in their initial stages, the least visible part of them. And it is that the lift is going to be built in a very rocky area, so the first phase of the work will involve crushing all that rock, in such a way as to be able to build the cabin which will be the first of two urban lifts. “At the moment, we are in the early stages of the work and since the lift is being placed in a very rocky area, that rock has to be cut,” Torres said.
parallel to the construction of these two lifts, The existing flights of stairs at this point in the Noble Villa will also be improved. In this sense, the new blocks of stairs will draw a lower slope than the current one, have a larger footprint and will have a series of railings that will help jarilleros going up or down these stairs to grab hold and walk more comfortably and safely.
