Subsequently, “once the property completes the construction of a new property on the resulting plot, in accordance with the General Plan, the City Council will carry out the urbanisation work, with which the width of this section of the street will be expanded. La Garita leaving it with the same aesthetics and dimensions as the rest of the street ”.

Caselles has clarified that "the urbanization work will be done a posteriori, once the transit of trucks and other machinery that is needed for the construction of the new building is finished." 

The person in charge of Urban Planning recalled that “with this action the urbanization of La Garita street will be completed, whose renovation in the section between Ramos Carratalá and Los Almendros avenue was recently completed, and by extension the updating of the El Calvari neighborhood, winning more and more space for 100% accessible pedestrian mobility ”.
