| It has had a cost of 64,000 euros and has been financed through a grant from Leader funds | The Jumilla City Council has completed the renovation work on the municipality's tourist signs.
On the one hand, the signage of the urban area has been renewed, on the other the natural areas of the Cingla, La Pedrera and El Carche mountains, as well as the short-distance tourist trails approved in Santa Ana and El Carche. The mayor of Jumilla, Juana Guardiola, stressed that "the renewal of this signaling was one of the objectives set by Tourism, since the existing signage was already deteriorated and in some cases outdated.
The objective is none other than to improve the visitor's experience, both to the urban area and to our rich natural heritage ". The Councilor for Tourism, María Quílez, added that "an attempt has been made to prevent the installation of the signage from creating an element that breaks with the environment, or creates a barrier, in addition to meeting the objective set". This is one of the Leader Projects presented by the Jumilla City Council and which were approved, within the line of subsidies for the provision of tourist infrastructures and the enhancement of natural and heritage resources.
The total cost was 64,395.79 euros. Arrow signs with 3.5 meter high posts and reflective signs have been used for natural spaces.
Likewise, information panels two meters wide by one meter high with double wooden posts three meters high have been installed, as well as other smaller ones with 60x48 cm panels.
Approach signs have also been placed with 1.75 meter round wooden posts.
The winning company was Estampaciones Casado for an amount of 37,364.39 euros. On the approved trails, wooden beacons have been installed with a landscape upper base with white and yellow paint.
In addition, different stones have been marked with the same colors in areas that could create conflict during the route.
Interpretive panels with technical information on unevenness, difficulty, distance and approximate time have also been included.
The cost was 6,110.50 euros and the work was carried out by Nemain Levante. The last to be installed have been those of the urban area, which have been placed on poles with directional panels that indicate different places of interest in the city, as well as commercial establishments.
In this case, the winning company has been Proseñal and a cost of 20,920.90 euros.
With municipal resources, the totem poles and information stands have also been renewed and expanded. During the next month the new signage will coexist with the old one, until the end of the period that the previous Leader aid with which they were installed ends.
