Thanks for the info Dolly, anything that makes the area better is worth waiting for as long as the work is of a good standard.

Have to agree with pilgrim the square is as mess & some tiles are already broken.

Very slow.  Not noticed any difference in several weeks.  I never get the chance to walk past there during the days so I don't know if work is going on.

All works extremely slowly. And even slower if that were possible latter end of this week, as 2 days of public holiday. If the place was not so corrupt, there would be far less inane works going on!

I've just read on Janet anscombes website that the works at playa San Juan are at a standstill nearly a year on. I would be so cross if I were a business owner there.  It is appalling that this disruption is still ongoing and putting tourists off the area.  I am so glad we opted for Puerto de la Cruz for October for a change.

Ditto, shame the builders are not as diligent. As it may have been finished by now.

Its a two year project and now into 11th month.  They are progressing very well

I pass them every day, there are several teams and they certainly are working.  They start at 07:30 and work till 16:30.  I feel sorry for them having to work in this heat!!!  The last couple of days has seen a temporary tarmac surface to the road from Tamara to Calle Adelpha.  That will keep the dust down.

The works to the road improvement in LG are so slow, wonder why the council hate this village so much!
It has to be a deliberate policy, people say that the funds are not available so work has to slow till tax income catches up. The Plaza took 2 years to end up with a defective embarrassing block paving (in white, partly, showing every bit of chewing gum and stain). Wonder what joys are in store as no money for decent finishes to pavements etc..
Please, please, anyone who has some say, get rid of these people making these stupid corrupt decisions.
Sadly, I tell people and friends who are coming over to book elsewhere!

I was a bit harsh in my criticism in the previous post! The finish of the pavements in the section that has been completed, that is the straight section of road before marina, is to a good standard, and similar in substance to the improvements made to Playa Arena.

Here is a picture I took this morning of the work on the new pathway around the Barcello Santiago hotel.  Look like there is still a lot of work to do.

Seems to be. Speaking to a local waitress in the village it has been and still is a nightmare.  A lot of the parking has gone so village very quiet. Walked down to harbour and beach which is nice but the road down from  Simple Simons a mess.

Actually the whole area seems VERY QUIET.

Manyana! springs to mind.

Hello,
Been reading this with interest, we're staying in Calle Pino end of January near the town end, will the roadworks close to this junction be finished by then do you think, just a bit concerned about noise thats all? What is actually being done, cosmetic or something about a new pipe? Thanks

The main work has been replacing all the water pipes, but the pipes which hold the electricity and phone cables have been replaced too.

It's a 2 year project and we are now into month 14.  The main road which passes the Calle el Pino and Calle Adelpha junctions is now being resurfaced and I have been told it will open up to 2 way traffic.  Its looking really nice now with new pavements, plants and a few new palm trees.

Keep your fingers crossed that the work will have progressed more towards the square by the time you arrive, they are currently as far as Verdes progressing towards Richardsons and the Green corner.

People living in the Florencia area have had constant noise every morning from 07:30 for 14 months now!

Many thanks, yes it will look nice when it's finished, when we were there last January I just thought naively it was the one road by the marina! Hopefully if they're resurfacing by Calle Pino now they will have moved away from our street towards the square. No we don't want noise at 7.30am on holiday! Is that road now going to be permanently 2 way or is it to allow them to close another road?

From what I gathered this am,there is a concert tomorrow evening - 20.00/20.30. The problem is that the loudspeaker van going around  is always in Spanish and never very clear!
