Provincial Council investments provide a roof for a track at Virgen del Saliente school

The self-supporting roof had an investment of 250,000 euros.

The pupils of the Virgen del Saliente Infant and Primary School can now play sports 12 months of the year thanks to the works carried out through the provincial investments. The Mayoress of Albox, María del Mar Alfonso, and the Provincial Councillor for Development, Antonio J. Rodríguez, together with councillors from the government team, have visited this educational centre to check the result of the works with the protagonists who are going to benefit from them, the pupils and the entire educational community of the centre.

This project provides a solution so that neither rainfall nor the intense summer heat, prevent the practice of sport in multi-sport courts that are 38.80 meters long and 20 meters wide. In the same way, this roof has provided a refuge area for the pupils during break times.

The work consisted of covering one of the tracks (upper track) of the Virgen del Saliente school in Albox with a self-supporting roof with large spans. The portico supporting the roof, which is located next to the lower track, has been provided with support brackets for a future roof on the lower track, thus avoiding a duplication of pillars between the two tracks.

The project has had a budget of 250,000 euros, co-financed with the Provincial Council’s Provincial Plans.

Antonio J. Rodríguez has highlighted the importance of these investments that have a direct impact on the children of Albox; “this work is in addition to the one that is going to be carried out in the CEIP Velázquez of this municipality. We are looking at half a million euros that will improve the sports and educational infrastructures of this municipality. These two schools will have covered courts where they can play sports or enjoy their free time at recess without having to suffer the inclement weather.

The Provincial Councillor for Development recalled that thanks to the investments included in the 2020-23 Provincial Plans, equal opportunities in sports are being promoted in the province with the improvement and construction of facilities in 16 municipalities in all the counties. “We are talking about more than six million euros to ensure that municipalities can have the same infrastructure and services as in a big city,” he explained.

For her part, the mayoress of Albox has indicated that “we are very grateful for the unconditional support shown by the Provincial Council with the municipality of Albox. Thanks to their support we can make projects for the future and grow. And this work is the best example. A roof for the Virgen del Saliente School which will improve the school’s facilities and which our children will be able to enjoy”.
