Pedestrian tumbles on zebra crossings lead to repainting work on Spain’s Costa Blanca

Calpe Pedestrian Tumbles

COMPLAINTS by people slipping over on Calpe’s pedestrian crossings have forced the city council to replace old paint markings.

Residents have struggled to keep their feet on the surface signs, some of which have been painted over several times.

The problem has been even worse on crossings located on a slope.

Contractors have now been brought in to sort out the problem at a cost of almost €29,000.

Most of Calpe’s crossings use a combination of acrylic paint and a non-slip agent, but a cluster has not used that mixture, leading to unwelcome pedestrian tumbles..

The markings are being stripped off and replaced on Calle Capitan Perez Jorda, Avenidas Masnou and Valencia, through to Calle Benidorm, before the four-week project ends in the Plaza Colon area of the city.
