Work has begun this week on the Pont d’en Domènech area of the Sitges promenade, following on from work carried out on other sections.
The aim of the work is to avoid situations where there is a risk of the promenade’s current waste water pipeline, which now passes through the beaches, breaking or overflowing onto the beaches due to storms.
Previously when damaged, the waste water pipe that passes through the beaches of La Fragata, la Ribera, Bassa Rodona and l’Estanyol, has overflowed onto the beach and into the sea.
The work first started in the space between Avinguda Sofia and Pont d’en Domènech, causing several cuts to the promenade. Next week, action will be taken on the strip of land on Passeig de la Ribera between Pont d’en Domènech and La Fragata.
The forecast is for the work to end in the spring of 2023. The budget is €1,176,261, which is being covered by the Catalan Water Agency.
