Valencia City Hall will begin work to renovate public lighting in Poeta Más and Ros streets next week. This action corresponds specifically to lot 3 of the lighting renewal project, which gave rise to the citizen participation process 2020-2021c, in which the lampposts of several streets in the Benicalap district and the Camins al Grau playgrounds will also be renewed.
