The work objective is to recuperate the pine forest over the characteristic environment of the beach dunes in the Community, and create a Beachfront Park integrated continuously with the beach and the green zone. This will displace, at the same time, the road traffic and the vehicle parking on adjacent roads, clearing the coastline and widening the promenade.

WORK DESCRIPTION

The entire works are located in the entire city of Castellón. The platform, in this section, runs from the Plaza de la Independencia, through streets Zaragoza, Rey Don Jaime, Ruiz Zorrilla, Gasset, Escultor Viciano and Gobernador Bermúdez de Castro, finishing at Plaza Cardona Vives. The section being built between Ribalta park and Plaza Cardona Vives represents the section that connects the Jaime I University with the Castellón city center, and the city center with the Grao de Castellón district, via Avda. del Mar.

These works signify the surface re-development of all the streets involved, since the implementation of a new transport system requires the re-distribution of the areas it crosses. In fact, the TRAM platform runs along the central section of the roadway causing present usage to be moved to either side of the road, with the intention of maintaining two pedestrian zones, one at each side of the TRAM lane, and if possible at least one lane for resident vehicles and loading/unloading bays for local businesses. Where it is not possible to open a lane, restricted traffic will be permitted in pedestrian areas.

The fact that the route runs through some of Castellón’s busiest streets makes a more in depth study of the final finishes of the entire urban development necessary and, at the same time, minimizing as far as possible, any inconvenience caused to residents and local businesses. These two aspects have been the underlying aspects of the entire development of the building works.
