The Mayor supports the residents of Villaespesa Soterrada (06/11/2018)

Fulgencio Gil will request the replacement of the roads of the Sierra de la Sierra, Puente Churra and Vereda de la Palma, as well as a less invasive alternative for the private buildings that may be affected and the improvement of drainage to avoid flooding

The Mayor of Lorca, Fulgencio Gil, this morning held a working meeting with the representatives of the platform Villaespesa Soterrada, composed of Lorca affected by expropriations and works planned for the Sangonera-Lorca AVE line, and belonging to districts such as Marchena, La Hoya and Tercia.

The First Edil, who last week held a meeting with the President of this group, Patricio Gómez, has ratified his total commitment to the demands of these neighbors, among which stands out as the most outstanding example change the high elevation expected at the crossing of Villaespesa by an underground passage, rejecting the construction of slopes of 16 meters of heights very close to existing houses, and reducing in a very considerable way the affection to houses and private lands, as well as to farms and agricultural cooperative installations.

Fulgencio Gil has recalled that both this requirement and others related to the aforementioned layout were transferred to the Ministry of Development last May, with the aim of being taken into account by the Government of Spain for the execution of the works of the railway line .

We are talking about a battery of proposals and allegations to adapt to social reality what was planned in the project of Construction of the AVE Platform in our municipality.

As main contributions we request that in view of the high traffic recorded by the roads Villaespesa and Enmedio, in both cases it is claimed that the steps are not elevated but underground, in addition to the replacement of the roads of the Sierra de la Sierra, Puente Churra and Vereda de The Palm.

These requests include the realization of a less invasive alternative for the private buildings affected, as well as the incorporation of more drainage works and the extension of the existing ones of 2.2 m, to avoid afflictions in case of torrential rains.

Once the planned gradients have been studied, it is requested that, always considering the corresponding technical requirements, an attempt be made to adjust the gradients more to the existing terrain and to the planned transversal drainage works, since very high red heights are observed along the entire length of the platform to execute.

With the possible reduction of the level of the slope we would obtain, among others, the following advantages: a minor alteration of the landscape, improving the visual impact;

a lower superficial occupation of the affected properties and, therefore, a lower loss of soil and of agricultural productivity;

a smaller volume of fillings (very deficient in this project, with a volume coming from quarries exceeding 3.5 million cubic meters), etc.

With respect to the intersections with the main existing roads, the typology of some transversal road crossings has been modified.

The Informative Study showed 4 superior steps (pk: 37 + 850, 39 + 000, 40 + 300 and 44 + 200) and 4 lower ones (pk: 36 + 200, 42 + 600, 45 + 600 and 46 + 200) .

In the Construction project there are 6 overpasses (pk: 240 + 100, 242 + 300, 243 + 500, 244 + 700, 245 + 600 and 246 + 600) and a lower step (pk: 239 + 800).

With the elimination of crossings under or over the railway infrastructure, territorial permeability and sectoral agricultural and livestock productivity are impaired, since connectivity is lost.

It is requested that the upper passes of the D-3 (pk 243 + 500), of the Villaespesa Way (pk 245 + 000) and of the Middle Way (pk 245 + 680) are projected of a lower type, taking advantage of the existing Currently, in order to reduce the conditions and improve the layout of the crossings.

With red levels of 5.12, 3.69 and 3.02 m, respectively, the gradient of the lower passages would not be far below the natural terrain.

In any case, the City of Lorca would be responsible for the maintenance of the necessary facilities to pump water that could be retained when episodes of precipitation occur.

Regarding the transversal drainage, we propose that more water evacuation works be incorporated and that the existing ones of 2.2 m be extended, given the risk that a possible plugging of the frames could lead to flooding upstream of the platform. Mediterranean Corridor, producing the dreaded "dam" effect, with the consequent risk for the people who reside there and the existing goods.

The City Council requests that the upper passage that existed in the limit of the municipality of Lorca (pk 235 + 650), which was demolished when the construction of the platform of the section between Totana and Lorca of the Alcantarilla-Lorca High Speed ​​Mediterranean Corridor Construction Project.

With the replacement of this step, connectivity in this area of ​​the municipal area is improved, since the nearest steps are several kilometers away.

There are several private buildings that have been affected by the construction of high-rise concrete walls next to them (M-242.3, PS-243.5, M-244.8 and PS-245.6).

It is requested that the solution given in the project be reconsidered and a less invasive one proposed.
