Starting Monday Salobreña Town Hall will reopen all the town’s access points that have been closed almost since the beginning of the Lock Down.
The top exit, near Hotel Miba, for example, has had a barrier across it for the last 48 days, as had the Guadalfeo bridge entrance but from Monday morning the barrier will be dismantled.
In fact, the only functioning entrance into town has been the main one leading under the N-340 bridge to the Pontanilla, often manned by the Guardia Civil or the Policía Local.
In the first few days following the 15th of March around 5,000 people came down from Granada and even as far afield as Madrid to take up residence in their holiday homes. Fearing that such an influx could bring in cases of Covid-19 the Mayor ordered all access to the town to be controlled to prevent more people arriving.
But with the arrival of Phase One on Monday it made little sense to maintain these measures as people from the provincial capital that own houses on the coast are free to move down and take up residence there.
