Roads Around Market Closed

Don't forget that on Monday and Tuesday next week the streets running alongside the ex-municipal market in Almuñécar will be closed to traffic.

ALM Market Street Work JN22This is because they are going to be retarmacked after all the undergound infrastructure running beneath them has been renewed.

Don’t panic, though, as there will be road signs up indicating diversions to follow giving you alternative routes to take.

The affected streets and the ones used as alternative are: Avenida de Cala, Callejón del Virgo, Calle Sánchez Chaves, Calle San Juan and Avenida de Europa.

The  work being carried out on Monday the 20th will be the tarmacking on Avenida de Cala, Callejón del
Virgo and Calle Sánchez Chaves, and then on Tuesday the 21st it will be the turn of Calle Sánchez Chaves (again), Calle San Juan and (parts of) Avenida de Europa.

The Head of the roadworks asks residents and visitors for their patience and would prefer that  nobody sulks at the bottom of the pit where the market was.

Editorial comment: We’re just wondering why they are giving the streets a nice new surface, if when the municipal market building work commences, it is all going to get ripped up by heavy machinery?

    David. I was being careful in what I was saying to a degree. I read about the old market situation. But that sort of thing goes on all the time it seems here.
    Padron given to people who don’t really live in an area much. New businesses in beach parking areas. But little we can do. Just enjoy life I guess.

    Remember Patrick the market was built when Benny (Benavidis) was alcalde. it has not lasted (built with substandard materials?) The same ex alcalde signed off on Camenes del Mar which is due to cost the ayuntiemiento millions. So before you go on about the tendering of the new market, look into the tendering of the old market. Nod nod, wink wink etc.

    Council money surplus.? This piece of string. That the market is. ??
    Were there questions raised about the tendering of said market rebuild. Did anyone ever have to answer. ??
    No?? How very politically correct. The UK and Spanish politics at last in tandem.
    No one did it m’lord.!!
