Hey, we’ve got a new boulevard, sort of thing. It runs down side of the river in the P-4. I’m not sure how far it goes down, but it looks as if it runs all the way down to the tennis courts, near the main road.
A suitable plaque was unveiled on the inauguration day, and Benny and a smattering of councillors cut the tape to this 272,160-euro project.
“The P-4 has turned into the economic lung of Almuñécar,” said the Mayor, “which now has recreation space in which to stroll or simply relax.”
He listed the amenities within the P-4, including the stadium, high school, paddle & tennis courts, kiddies’ play park and the medical centre.
The question is; will the P-4 be gunning for independence, now that they have even got a petrol station and post office?
Whipping off the rose-coloured glasses, it may catch your eye that apart from there being nil visibility on any of the junctions, thanks to the Borneo-Jungle-imitation zebra-crossing gardens, there is not one bank in the whole P-4, much less a cash machine, other than the one next to El Día.
