The municipal Maintenance Department for La Herradura has been busy sorting out the pedestrian pavement on the bridge over the Barranco del Espinar, giving access the barrio of that name and La Cañada.
Basically, they have been finishing off the top end of the Acera del Pilar, which runs up alongside the barranco from the beach. According to the First Councillor for La Herradura, Juan José Ruiz Joya, the work to provide a pavement for pedestrians is necessary because there have been a couple of accidents on the bridge, precisely because pedestrians have to walk on the road.
In his opinion, as the traffic flow has recently been modified so that traffic from Las Maravillas and El Camino Real has to pass that way to reach the beach, the need for a pavement or sidewalk is even more necessary.
