The heavy downpour of water recorded this afternoon in inland areas of the Mar Menor, generated drags and runoff that have caused the overflowing of some perpendicular channels to the channel of the Tajo-Segura Transfer, located between the greenhouses located behind the company Surinver, on the RM-F25 road between San Pedro del Pinatar and Lo Romero.
The municipal brigades of Cartagena City Council have been working since yesterday on the roads and accesses that were affected by the downpour of water on Saturday.
The police councillor Juan Pedro Torralba explains that they have worked against the clock to clear the entrance to the San Francisco Javier de Los Barreros school and so that today all the roads and paths were clear, especially in the area where the rains had the worst consequences, such as the Camino del Sifón, which this morning was open to road traffic despite the fact that small accumulations of water can still be seen.
The mayor has not made an assessment of damage and ensures that normality has been restored this Monday throughout the municipality: “Cartagena City Council officials are doing a great job so that normality returns to our streets and roads. From the first moment, Firefighters, Local Police and Civil Protection attended the more than a hundred incidents that occurred in the municipality and from the Mobile Park continues to work so that citizens can recover their routines”.
Throughout Sunday, officials from the City Council’s Mobile Park intensified their efforts to restore normality in the areas where the rains had had the worst consequences, such as the Camino del Sifón, which this morning was open to traffic despite the fact that small accumulations of water can still be seen.
Work has continued throughout Monday on several roads in the western area, especially in El Parrillar and El Rincón de Sumiedo, where the rain caused a large sinkhole in an access road and landslides on the N332 as it passes through Los Ruices. Once the work in this area has been completed, the work has moved on to the Rambla del Cañar, where it is hoped that normality will be restored.
