description
The execution of the project of conditioning of El Miracle beach suggests the need for a pedestrian connection between the high part of the city and the new platforms on the beach side.
The best strategy is to build the extension of the Roman Amphitheatre stairs over the railway tracks for its closeness to the centre of the city, which could be completed with other connections.
The proposal is to build this concrete platform up to the 14 metres limit. It would be built with prefabricated concrete beams supported by a concrete wall at the end. For the vertical connection a cantilever stair is suspended from a white perforated wall raising over the platform.
