If you have been along the San Cristóbal beach road in Almuñécar you will have seen that municipal workmen have been busy erecting railings.
We’re referring to the new, wonderful, you-can’t-bend-it-glows-in-the-dark roundabout in front of Aparthotel Chinasol. Ah, that’s a RAF expression, equivalent to all-singing-all-dancing; in other words, “modern and advanced.”
Anyway, English-class-for-non-native-speakers apart, the workmen have been erecting 58 individual sections of railing, each 120 cm in length… and before you rip your shoes and socks off to calculate (using all available digits) that’s a total of 70 metres of railing. If it’s not, blame the Councillor for Urban Development, Francisco Alba, who sent out the press release.
Anyway, by the time that you have your trembling-with-anticipation hands on this month’s copy of the Seaside Gazette, they will have finished and you will no longer be able to take short cuts over the roundabout – pedestrians, that is, drivers are a different matter.
