It is happening now. The tourist office in Los Gigantes looks finished and will open soon. Pavements are already being replaced in Calle Tamara, Crab Island and up by Diamond apartments, in fact all the pavements which haven't been replaced now will be. There is also a lot of work going on in Puerto Santiago by the Ferreterias and Dumbo's, and this is just phase 1.
It's certainly a breath of fresh air in such troubled times. We will bring you regular updates and photos of the work progress.
Just been enjoying P M's mis-spelt ("sort after") ravings about the new monies made available to Santiago del Teide to posh the place up.
What struck me was the excitement over the imminent opening of a Los Gigantes tourist office on the little plaza in the middle of the junction opposite Ocean Drive.
I thought I should point out that the tourist office is perfectly placed to pick up the stench from the drains that permanently pervades the area. Perhaps it'll get up the noses of the staff enough for them to persuade someone on the council to do something about it.
Then, of course, they could site another tourist office on the Green Corner terrace, where they'll be treated to exactly the same noxious odours.
