  • Description

    Models for the transformation of the present course of the Turia river, which has already been dredged and the canalization of which continues with the aid of the Ministry of Public Works, are exhibited in the Town-hall of Valencia. Here we see the course of the river as it runs through Manises and enters the capital flowing into the sea.

    According to the new plan, the Turia shall branch off in Manises, and cross several towns disemboguing at a distance of 8 kms from the capital.

    The old river-bed shall be converted in a road for rapid cards, with settlements and bridges.

    850 houses have already been erected in a site which a year ago was covered by orchards; they are destined to those who lost their homes during the feshets.
