New pledges over theme park and airport
The long sagas of Corvera Airport and the Paramount Theme Park appear to be reaching an end game, according to Murcia’s politicians. Murcia President, Ramón Luis Valcarcel told the Regional Assembly this week that the new airport at Corvera will open in April 2014, and will run in tandem with the current facility at San Javier, which will then close in the autumn. Meanwhile, Tourism Minister Pedro Albert Cruz has said that construction work on the Paramount Theme Park will start at the end of the year, despite a delay in the issuing of building licenses.
Valcarcel’s comments over the San Javier shutdown came after the news that the Murcian government had cancelled its contract with Aeromur for running Corvera, blaming the company for failing to keep to all the deadlines for opening up the airport. As reported by The Courier earlier this year, the government took legal action to void their contract with Aeromur, on the grounds of failing to meet its contractual obligations, and they may even sue the company in the future. Government minister Antonio Sevilla said that they will be readvertising the operating contract, and that the process could take up to two months, with Sevilla emphasising that he wanted Corvera to open as soon as possible. President Valcarcel announced this week that the airport authority AENA was committed to shutting down San Javier next autumn, and were on board for an April launch for Corvera.
Construction planning licenses were set to be issued this month for the Paramount Theme Park at Alhama de Murcia, but despite regular pledges this would happen, Tourism Minister, Pedro Albert Cruz has now said that there’s a delay until December and that building work would start as soon as the Alhama council issues licenses for the various parts of the designated park land.
Cruz said that getting all the necessary documentation takes time and added that considering Spanish bureaucracy, it was something of a triumph that construction work on the project would only start some six months behind schedule. He said that clearance of the site with the removal of trees is about to get underway. He added that building works would continue until the end of 2015, with the park opening soon after, and that there were no problems with any financial guarantees from the Premursa company, which is running the development of the Paramount Park.
