The Council of the Catalan Government approved yesterday (19/04/2016) the bidding process for the construction of the Sports Hall/Palau d´Esports for the Mediterranean Games – Tarragona 2017 – which would be the central venue in the ¨Mediterranean Ring¨ located in two of the Tarragona´s neighborhoods (Campclar and Bonavista).
The new bidding process, to be opened soon, considers breaking down the execution of the works in three different phases: civil engineering, architecture and facilities´ stages. The Government has approved to expand the budget on the infrastructure scope required to build ¨The Palau¨, resulting in an increase from 12.403.395 euros to 14.700.00 euros.
The Chairman of the Mediterranean Games and City Hall Councillor, Javier Villamayor, has shown his satisfaction and has thanked the Catalan Government for its ¨ rigour, commitment and solvency to move forward the construction of the Games´ ¨Palau d´Esport¨ as well as the excellent coordination between the Games and the Catalan Government. There has always been a complete trust on the Infrastructure Department and we are convinced that the new bidding process, to be opened in the next coming days, will make Tarragona and the rest of the country have the deserved venue for high impact events such as the Mediterranean Games.
The support given by the previous and actual President of the Catalan Goverment, Artur Mas and Carles Puigdemont respectively, proves the patronage and involvement always received from the Catalan Government. Again, this demonstrates that a good project for Tarragona is a good one for the country¨.
Recently the President of the Catalan Government, Carles Puigdemont, emphasized his backing of the Mediterranean Games – Tarragona 2017 – since he considers them as ¨an strategic project that will be reinforced by the Government in every single step¨.
