In order to improve energy efficiency, reduce light pollution and move towards a more sustainable city, the avenues of Europe and Madrid, La Legua and Paseo Juan Pablo II will have new lighting.
The Councilor for Works, Noelia de la Cruz, has indicated this Tuesday that, among the projects that are going to be launched, the one for Europa Avenue stands out, which began this week, and which will continue with the replacement of street lights. Corpus Christi street. This investment will exceed 75,000 euros.

"Both the sidewalk and the road have a clear lighting deficit, so 5-meter-high columns with two LED lights will be installed, so that we will illuminate the sidewalk and the road," Noelia de la Cruz commented.
Thus, 152 lights will be installed on Avenida de Europa and on the service road, which will be telemanaged point by point in order to adapt the level of lighting to the real needs of the street depending on the time and the time of year, with the consequent energy savings and in the municipal electricity bill.
