Pedro Fernández, from the dizzing heights of the Andalusian Government, visited the work going on in Salobreña restoring the beach.
A total of 30,000 cubic metres of sand (clearly a euphemism) in front of Salomar 2000. The material has been taken from the Rambla de Molvízar, more or less where it joins the Río Guadalfeo.
According to the said governmental delegate, work is progressing at a “good pace” and expects it to be concluded around the middle of June – obviously, it has to be finished before San Juan on the 24th
The Mayor, María Eugenia Rufino, thanked the Government of Spain for its prompt action in sorting the beaches out after the spring gales, allocating 210,000 euros for the task. She did say, however, that the beaches need coastal defences against wave action rather than patching it up yet again.
Editorial comment: obviously this offering of gratitude to the Central Government (in the hands of her own party) was a bit of a snub to the delegate from the Junta, which is governed by PP. The Spanish coastline comes under the Central Government (Costas) not the regional authorities.
