Torrenueva Costa has finally opened its cliff-top bridge to the general public to the delight of both young and old who crossed it for the first time.
This suspended bridge measures 60 metres in length and has a glass section in the floor about half way across, so that users can peer down to the rocks and surf 35 metres below – not for the faint hearted.
The Mayor of Torrenueva Costas, Plácido Lara, explained that the process for getting the bridge from conception to being finally inaugurated has been “a long rode to travel.” It was not only a case of mountains of paperwork and permits but also the Pandemic that hit half way through.
Then there was the shortage of materials that came at the tail end of the pandemic made worse by the road-transport strike.
The bridge, which cost some 250,000 euros, is part of a cliff-top pathway that connects the town paseo to Playa de la Joya about six kilometres away.
