Work on PTS Grounds Underway

Andalusia's Regional Minister of Employment, Business and Trade, José Sánchez Maldonado, and the mayor of Granada, Francisco Cuenca, have visited the Granada Health Science Technological Park (PTS) to see the progress being made on the development of its grounds and green spaces. The Andalusian Innovation and Development Agency (IDEA) plans to invest 2.5 million euros in the development of 117,000 square metres of the Park's grounds.

Earthworks were the first stage in the grounds development project.

Work began on the development of green spaces and regeneration of empty spaces in the PTS in July and is set to be completed within 19 months. The project began with earthworks and preparation of the ground. In the next stages, paving will be laid, street furniture will be fitted, gardens and trees will be planted, lighting and irrigation systems will be installed, and waste management and maintenance systems will be set up.

According to José Sánchez Maldonado, "through this project, the Autonomous Government of Andalusia, via the IDEA agency, is fulfilling its commitment to developing the grounds of this leading science park." He went on to underline the important role that the collaboration between Granada City Council and the region's Autonomous Government has played in the project.

After thanking the Autonomous Government for its "ongoing collaboration" and its investment in the PTS, the mayor of Granada highlighted that the future park will be the largest in the city and will "be enjoyed by all residents, especially those in the Zaidín district." Francisco Cuenca added that the development of the grounds will provide the PTS "with an area that not only looks attractive, but also plays an environmental role and provides leisure amenities."
