Salobreña is going about some urban-planning changes with parks, as well as at the entrance to town, known as the Pontanilla.
Some of them, admittedly, seem illogal, such as the side chosen for the widened footpath under the bridge, but there is one that nobody will have any doubts about: more parking space.
For example, along Avenida del Mediterráneo where the parking arrangement will be changed from in-line parking to a side-by-side arrangement.
However, the moment chosen (summer) to carry out some changes has raised more than a few eyebrows. However, the replacement of tiles on the school roof had to wait for the long summer holidays as neither the Christmas or Easter break was long enough to complete the task.
Mayor María Eugenia Rufino was interviewed by Radio Salobreña last month, where she was asked about parking space that has disappeared. Her response that it is planned to recuperate this parking space in the Parque de la Libertad, where about 40 parking places will be set up.
She also spoke about the damaged sign (the word ‘Salobreña’ in large individual letters) she explained that they are dealing with the insurance company (the culprit’s car insurance) to get the replacement. This is a slow process.
As for the mini bus station, when all the works are finished they will make Avenida Antonio Machado into a 2-way traffic flow. That’s the street that links the Town Hall square to the Plaza de Pontanilla. This is difficult to imagine seeing as they have narrowed the road there.
