the Directorate General for the Coast declares emergency works on the beaches of Adra, Almeria, Mojacar and Cuevas.

The Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, through the Directorate General for the Coast and the Sea, has approved a resolution declaring emergency works on the beaches of Adra, Almeria, Mojacar and Cuevas del Almanzora to deal with the damage caused by the storms of recent months. The actions, valued at 300,000 euros, contemplate the repair of the damage caused on these beaches with the contribution of a total of 20,000 cubic metres of sand.

The sub-delegate of the Government in Almería, José María Martín, has assured that “in view of the problems of sand loss and erosion, this emergency has been approved to mitigate the damage and prepare the beaches for the summer season”. He added that “the loss of sand caused by waves over 3 metres high endangers the stability, use and enjoyment of the beaches, which is why this action is necessary”.

The resolution of the Directorate General for the Coast and the Sea comes to address the storms that have been undermining the width of several beaches in the province, and that has been aggravated by the Nelson storm in the last week of March. Specifically, the damage recorded during the storms has caused serious erosion and loss of sand on the beaches of Guainos Bajos in Adra, El Perdigal in Almería, Parador beach in Mojácar and the beaches of Palomares – Quitapellejos in Cuevas del Almanzora.

To alleviate the damage caused, sand from quarries will be brought to these four beaches located in the aforementioned municipalities in both the Levante and Poniente areas of the province and in the capital of Almeria.
