Alicante Airport Problems

After chaos last weekend at Alicante Elche Miguel Hernandez airport as a result of strike action by security staff, passengers are once again warned to allow extra time to get through security on Tuesday as the industrial action is set to continue.

Security staff called for stoppages which would affect passenger and goods flows through the terminal building for one hour in the morning and another in the afternoon.

The action is scheduled to continue on Tuesday this week, and again on Friday and Saturday.

Cancer-seeking Robots

The Valencia regional government is supporting the development of a new intelligent robot for dermatological examinations, which is capable of assisting in the detection and delineation of the main types of skin cancer through an automated technique that does not require contact and is completed in just a few seconds.

In the execution of this strategic project, named AD-DERMA, had the support of the Valencian Innovation Agency (AVI) and financing from the European Union, within the framework of the Comunitat Valenciana FEDER program for the period 2021-2027, the Generalitat reported in a statement.

No to No Smoking

The PP and VOX political groups in Elche have voted against a notion that would ban smoking on the terraces of bars in the municipality.

The notion, proposed by Compromis, was brought about on the grounds of health, in particular to protect bar users from passive smoking, after the Valencia region lifted the ban which had been in place during the height of the covid pandemic.

Tapas and Science

The Miguel Hernández University (UMH) has organised a special tapas day for Tuesday, ‘From the sea to the plate: responsible consumption of seafood’, combining food and education as part of their ongoing initiative, the ‘Science Goes to School’ project.

The informative activity of Science with tapas is carried out approximately every two months and consists of an informal talk on a current scientific topic, while having some tapas in a restaurant. Today, the Pynchon&Co bookstore in Alicante is the venue.

Choral Concerts in Torrevieja

The 35th International Choral Meeting ‘Ciudad de Torrevieja’ will be held from Thursday this week in the Municipal Theatre in Torrevieja.

The Opening Gala will take place on Thursday at 8:30 p.m., with the participation of the ‘Francisco Vallejos’ choir and the ‘Vox Musicalis’ choir from Totana in Murcia.

Tickets are available at the theatre box office, where the full schedule of concerts can also be obtained.

Going Roundabouts

The completion of the urban improvement works on the País Valencià roundabout in Dénia, and the surrounding streets, is not likely to be finished at the end of this month as planned, due to a delay in the arrival of fixtures.

The work, which has cost 1.2 million euro, has served to renew this square and the streets that surround it, have been carried out since last October, not without a few surprises, delaying the initial 9 month work period, including the discovery of archaeological remains of Muslim bathrooms.

Although some elements are already being used, the completion of the work will not come until the new furniture is in place, something that is expected this month or next, and in any case, the official opening of the plaza will no longer be possible within the deadline set for the end of this month of September, and with everything going very well, it is already being considered for October, according to the town hall.

Tram Work to Start Soon

Up to seven companies are competing for the award of the renewal of the tram tracks between l’Alfàs del Pi and Altea. The action went out to tender for just under 15 million euro, has European financing, and has an execution period of two years. The objective of the Department of Infrastructure is to improve the flow by doubling the track from the El Albir stop. In this way, they will improve train frequencies and the service currently provided for the Marina Baixa region, as reported by the Ministry at the time.

Specifically, the doubling of the track will occur over a length of 3.33 kilometres, which includes the 332 metres of the Cap Blanc viaduct.

Focus on Refugees

Villajoyosa town hall is promoting a new art exhibition taking place in the Casa Joventut.

“AmbLesRefugiades” exhibits a set of images that, with the collaboration of various insitutes and artists, aims to offer reflection and awareness of the dramatic situation experienced by people who, for different reasons, are forced to leave their countries of origin and look for a new life, often where next to the drama of poverty, they face intolerance, persecution, and abuse.

The exhibition aims to provide an opportunity for analysis and reflection, combining the background of the drama with the artistic form that the selected Valencian illustrators have created in beautiful, suggestive and explicit images.
