Slip Sliding Away

No, it's not about Carmenes del Mar in La Herradura, but the Camino de Beas, in the upper part of Sacromonte (Granada) whose access road has disappeared. And it's not the first time.

GRA CM Camino de BeasOne side of the lane has gone yet some car drivers still use what’s left, despite the eight-metre drop. Nothing bigger like a bus, lorry or more importantly, a fire engine (truck) or ambulance, can get through.

The residents of Sacromonte Alta, most of whom are elderly and rely on public transport, are not holding their breath because the last time that the road was unserviceable (December 2022) it took the City Hall five months to do something about it so in the meantime they were literally cut off.

There are no shops or other amenities up there so being cut off is no fun. According to the spokesperson for the neighbourhood association, the City Hall didn’t even begin to sort it out until September 2023.

Editorial comment: obviously, it is sheer lunacy to use what is left of the road and an alternative temporary access should be found; albeit using private land.
