Anybody who has driven down from the Punta de la Mona junction by the iron cactus, down El Camino Real and attempted to turn right to access Barrio Espinar from the top will have had a shaky moment, trying to haul their car round the tight bend with the nasty drop.[mappress]
For this very same reason the PSOE opposition party want the Town Hall to install a crash barrier at this point on Calle Sauce as there have been just too many close calls not to install such a barrier.
