773,000 euros for the development of the business park alongside Corvera airport
600,000 square metres are ready to welcome commercial and logistical concerns in Corvera
The budget at the disposal of the Department of Development and Infrastructures in the regional government of Murcia for 2019 has been cut to 175.4 million euros, 6.6 per cent less than in 2018, but this has not affected the commitment to creating industrial and economic activity in and around the new Region of Murcia International Airport in Corvera, which welcomes its first flights on 15thJanuary.
The minster at the head of the Department, Patricio Valverde, outlined on Thursday how the budget is to be allocated, and specified that 773,000 euros have been set aside for the “Complementary Activities Zone” (ZAC). This is an area of 600,000 square metres located next to the terminal which is to be home to commercial and logistical concerns, and is already equipped with street lighting, drainage, water supply, sewage, mains electricity and phone lines, according to the minister.
Other projects included in the budget are a similar Logistical Zone in Cartagena, which will receive roughly the same amount, and a total of 67.4 million euros for the road network in the Region of Murcia, of which 48.7 million are earmarked for the unfinished RM-1 motorway from San Javier to Santomera – this is the road which abruptly ends in an orange grove some 11 kilometres from where it ought to join the Murcia-Alicante motorway. Also within this category is work on the main road between Mazarrón and Puerto de Mazarrón.
