Road works
 
Work on planting trees around the Port has already been reported on the forum but they have also been digging trenches and laying pipes in a few of the streets. Road works have now started in C/Vicenc Buades, the old pot hole ridden surface is finally being replaced. They are making a lot of noise and mess :eek: but i am sure it will be worth it in the end :D.

Hopefully, all planned road works will be completed by the summer season ?

Well they have almost finished in C/Vicenc Buades and have aleady ripped up the surface in C/Roger de Flor, it's causing chaos for parking and the bars/restaurants have lost trade but they are moving very quickly. Here's a few photos :-

Yes it cuts down on traffic noise mate, the railing in the last pic isn't finished unfortunately, rain stopped play on Friday and the painter is on holiday for a week but the others look really good :).

Smg this work has been long overdue, we didn't have potholes.....more like craters :eek:.

Thanks for picture sparky, my flat is oposite school C/vincents boules so it looks great, tree's trimmed and a new road.. Out there in three weeks time can't wait..so just need the sun if you can organise for me.

Sparky 09-03-2014 12:49

Grandad you will notice a big difference, the new surface has reduced noise levels dramatically, every morning a huge lorry thunders down the road and it was so bad it made our windows used to rattle...now we don't hear it at all :D.
As for the sun...i will do my best ;).

Hope the tarmac doesn't melt in the hot sun, as it did one year in Leeds !

Indeed, must be a British thing like the "wrong" kind of rain, leaves on the track and hosepipe bans after a couple of weeks of sun! (To mention but a few).

varsp 10-03-2014 09:21

Wonder how many days of sunshine we will have, in the U.K before we get slapped with a hose pipe ban this year ?

Should I cancel the car hire and get a bike?? Discuss:)

Well, it would appear that they laid the new surface over the manhole covers, so this morning they are busy digging them out.........only in Mallorca :rolleyes::rolleyes:.
