The designated motorhome parking area in Alfaro, a recent addition to the city's tourist attractions, is set to open its doors to coincide with the Pilar Bridge holiday. Successfully completed by the local company Construcciones Alberto Varea, this project is ready to welcome visitors.
José Luis Segura, the Councilor for Urban Planning and Public Works, comments: "We received the completed work a couple of weeks ago. Being a municipal area, there are no additional procedures needed. We are excited to welcome visitors during the upcoming holiday."
This project was conceived in 2020 as part of a Participatory Budgeting initiative. The final construction phase was carried out in 2022 with an initial investment of 70,163.74 euros. However, due to economic challenges, the first contracted company had to halt operations in April. Construction resumed in August with an additional investment of 39,993.24 euros, culminating in a plot of 1,082 square meters.
Features and Regulations of the Space
Coinciding with the completion of the work, the official ordinance regulating the use of the space was published in the Official Gazette of La Rioja on September 26. This ordinance extends eligibility for parking in the area to approved living vehicles. The space has thirteen sizable parking spots, facilities for water supply and gray water drainage, as well as a waste container. According to the ordinance, the maximum permitted stay is 72 hours, with the condition that you cannot park again until a day has passed.
If you're planning to travel through Alfaro in your motorhome during the Pilar Bridge holiday, this new space represents an excellent parking option.
