The mayor’s office of San Salvador reported through a statement that after 12 days of hard work, the rearrangement of the surroundings of the El Calvario church was completed with a day of deep cleaning and fumigation in 11,000 m2.

“In total, 600 tons of gravel were evacuated, generated by the demolition of tiles and walls of some stalls. In addition, 200 tons of bulky material such as wood and sheets were collected. We also found 210 drains that had not flowed for more than 50 years since the posts were on them and they could not be cleaned, nor did they collect water, now they are all clean,” said German Muñoz, director of Solid Waste.

Throughout the process to clear the area, personnel from the Urban Development Management participated with the demolition of cement slabs, disassembly of abandoned stalls and poles, disconnection of electricity systems, among others. Likewise, the Parks, Squares and Green Areas Unit felled large trees that generated danger.

In addition, after self-employed merchants voluntarily dismantled 1,400 structures to relocate to the 23 municipal markets, the Solid Waste Department carried out several days of sweeping, waste collection with specialized equipment, washing streets and drains on 4th East Street and 6th Poniente street, between 1st and 3rd South avenues; Avenida 29 de Agosto, 3ª Avenida Sur. This Thursday, 125 employees again intervened in the area and included the Sacred Heart of Jesus market.
