A Guardia Civil in Galicia came across a family car towing a large boat, far greater in size than the towing vehicle, on the AP-9 motorway; they were impressed.
The third shooting in a fortnight in Marbella has led to another murder, this time a French citizen and local resident.
A heavy goods vehicle caught fire on the A-7 between La Herradura and Nerja, on the westbound carriageway, closing that section for several hours.
The police managed to intercept a car that had already driven 23 KM down the wrong side of a motorway in Murcia: strangely, it was a British driver. The police arrested the 69-year-old man, who resides in Cantoria, Almería, for dangerous driving.
The toll price on the motorway (autopista) between Málaga and Las Pedrizas has dropped from €3.20 to €1.90 because there were not enough users.
A squad of 20 rebar workers on the Lobres-Taramay section of the A-7 stopped work for one day because they still hadn’t been paid even for December.
Surprisingly, the 2013 budget announced by the Central Government shows that there is no money for the A-7 between Almuñécar/Salobreña. In fact, there is no money set aside until 2014, when it will receive a budget of 118m euros, and then 15m euros in 2015 and finally, 12m euros in 2016.
In july 2010, the PP, who were then in opposition, staged photo stunt to denounce the delays in the work on the A-7; yet another promised completion date had slipped by.
The reason for the contradictory heading is because although the mission of the Governmental Sub-Delegate for Granada, Santiago Pérez, was to reassure the residents of the Costa Tropical that the new conservative government would give priority to the completion of the A-7 autovia, the wording wasn’t actually that reassuring.
The much-needed stretch of autovia between Gorgoracha and Puntalón was 75% complete when all work ground to a halt; the construction company Isolux Corsan had struck an unexpected strata of rock that would require a lot of extra funding to reroute the construction work.
