The work on Motril’s Calle Ancha drags on and there is nowhere to park, so the old bus station will be used to alleviate the situation.
Councillor for Urban Development, Antonio Escámez, made two announcements concerning these major roadworks taking place at the top of town.
Firstly, that by the Dia de Andalucia (28th of February) about half of the work along this major, traffic artery will have been completed.
Secondly, as the street has been mostly inaccessible, which has caused major parking difficulties for residents, the plot on which the old bus station stood will be used as temporary public parking, starting next week.
This action has been taken because the Mayor’s office has been attracting a lot of flack over this lack of parking; a problem that has been snowballing during the months that roadworks have been going on.
It’s one thing to promise that an area will receive 21st-Century, subterranean infrastructure, but is quite another to ask people to put up with having to live around a Somme-like landscape, month in, month out.
