PALMA Council's Department of Infrastructure will start three major projects after the celebration of San Sebastian on January 20.
The first will be the refurbishment of the Plaza España where a pond with a waterfall will be restored around the statue of Jaime I. “It will all be illuminated and the waterfall will be extended and have a height in keeping with the height of the statue. A group of palm trees will be placed behind this and the whole of the Plaza will have more lighting. There will be six streetlamps in each of six more places,” councillor Marina Sans said. The project will try to improve the ornamental aspect of the different structures of the Plaza. To this end a small space will be created called “Rincon Bennasar,” dedicated to the architect who built the bullring. The Council will also start widening the Cami Passatemps, in the section between the entrance to the Son Castello industrial estate and the Calle Pedro Sans Garau. The pavement on the left side (going towards Son Sardina) will be five metres wide. This width will be shared between flower beds with trees and bushes (1.1 metres), and pedestrians and bicycles (3.9 metres). The road will be seven metres wide in total with a 1 metre verge on the right side (going towards Palma). This will also be widened to give play areas with benches and children's games. One of these will be in the Calle Pedro Sans Garau and another on the outskirts of the Son Basso urbanisation. Lastly, the refurbishment of the Plaza Comtat del Rossello, next to the Plaza Olivar market will be started on January 21. There will be improvements to the pavements, drains, flower beds and lighting.
