Update of works please Dolly
« on: January 25, 2019 »
I look forward to seeing more up to date photos of how the road/pavement works are going.

We are out first week of April. Do you think work will be finished by then?

Can't see much chance of seeing any difference to the heart of LG this year.  Maybe another 2/3.

Sandylea ...... the only work being done at this moment is the new main sewer from Tamara down to the beach road at the harbour (since 2 October) ...it's due to finish in 2/3 weeks. After that the major renovation works to the roads, pavements, street lighting and street furniture will begin ..... I understand that this is expected to last 18mths - 2 years .... so some considerable disruption to come ...but should be worth it at the end of the day. Plus the renovation of the Lido is due this year as well....

The photos are excellent. Thank you. I do fear our holiday first week of April isn't going to be as pleasurable as usual because of these works and the noise from the construction of Cristal.

Hi Dolly, any news on Masca bay pontoon repairs/re-opening.
Guess you guys are enjoying the lack of boat traffic for your dives.

There is no news on Masc walk opening again.

The taxi boats from Masca are never a problem to divers.  We have to anchor very near the cliffs for suitable depths and the taxi boats are further out to sea.  Also they know us well so keep well clear.

I was asked this question a few days ago "How is the new walk from the barcelo hotel to crab island coming on please"

I passed by on Sunday.  There is still a lot of work to do, difficult to judge how much longer they will take.

Bloody hell!! I hadn't realised the enormous extent of the work. Why? What was wrong with how it was before? Seems a waste of money.  I think our holiday next month is going to be ruined because of all of this. Glad I don't live there now.

I for one would enjoy the walk rather than cutting through the la pergola restaurant

Are you all saying it has be paid for through your rates and tax

That is not right

When they did the pavement about 5 years ago down in the harbour, the businesses didn't get compensation, at least Sonia and Arthur who ran the Dolphin at that time, didn't, and they were forced to close for about 4 weeks.

I was being facetious. The Canarian's at Political level, are a law to themselves. If they jump on you
try to get out of the way, as it won't matter if they break your legs or business - you wont see a penny.
Like many (most) countries in the EU they don't play cricket. And seem to get away with it.
Thank God were leaving.

Just returned from staying in Sansofe for 10 weeks in the complex next to the new pathway what a waste of money.

By the pace they are going it might be finished this year, they are now in the process of building up the cliffs  with rocks and cement

It seems that there is road works all over the area. Shame they do not finish one job before starting another. Just hope none are being done by the company that did the square re tiling😂😂

I still cant look at it. The grey/white blocks are now filthy. Covered in mud and dog I am an idiot, why can't these
so called dog lovers be filmed and fined when fouling. And the grey ones have white blobs all over them,
where the chewing gum has been spat out and stamped on. Probably by the dog owners, waiting for their animal to have a shi#e.

They also ruined the courtyard in Poblado Marinero when they re-did it a few years ago.  They just poured some horrid concrete over the cobbles and not evenly either.  They ruined the built in plant holders.  They can't seem to do anything nicely. 

Where is the money for all this coming from?  The EU?  Maybe when we are out, the EU won't have so much to give away......
