The City Council carries out the maintenance and clearing of more than 100 kilometers of rural roads and plots of land throughout the municipality.

The work is carried out throughout the year by the operational brigade of Agriculture, which has been reinforced with new personnel and specialized machinery. Preventing forest fires is the main objective of this work.

Estepona City Council reports that, so far this year, have been undertaken maintenance work, improvement and clearing of rural roads, ditches and plots in more than 100 kilometers throughout the municipality.

The deputy mayor of the area of Services and External Control, Blas Ruzafa, explained that the Consistory performs these actions through the municipal operational brigade of Agriculture, which was reinforced with 4 new staff, thus increasing its number from 7 to 11.

The mayor has indicated that these tasks are performed preventively to prevent forest fires, incidents in the event of heavy rainfall or visibility problems for drivers traveling on these roads.

Blas Ruzafa has stressed the importance of keeping rural roads clean and clear of dry vegetation, adding that the service has also been reinforced with more technical means, such as a new retromixta machine with brushcutter attached that greatly facilitates the work of operators, especially in areas with dense vegetation, thus increasing the effectiveness of the tasks.

Although the work is mainly focused on clearing and maintenance of the margins of roads, streams and rivers, the operational services of the City Council also carry out pavement repair work, maintenance of municipal plots and private land, where they are executed in a subsidiary manner.

These tasks, which are intensified during the summer period to prevent forest fires, continue with the line of work carried out by the brigade during the year, which also develops cleaning tasks of the beds of streams and rivers that run through urban sections. The aim is to free these spaces of obstacles that could prevent normal drainage, while also avoiding the formation of plugs that could cause flooding in the event of heavy rainfall, according to the head of the area.

Ruzafa has also insisted on making an appeal to citizens about the importance of respecting the environment and avoid depositing or throwing waste that contaminate these enclaves.
