Pool Pirate, if you drive down towards LG via A. Maritimo (from Colonial Park) you will see a sign on the corner of C Tabaiba. The top (green) sign is an arrow and says "C Tabaiba". Immediately below this is a further (white) sign saying "Centro", etc. Anyone new to the area will naturally assume that "Centro" is along C Tabaiba. So they drive down C Tabaiba, turn back and then try C Palmera.
I don't think this is any fault of the 25 or so drivers who do this every day, including coach drivers. The danger arises from the dithering at the end of these streets when fast moving taxis and Titsa buses are approaching down A Maritimo. Also from the few who turn left out of C Palmera and up A Maritimo, trying to find there way back to where confusion first set in (i.e. Colonial Park).
This isn't my imagination and my views are shared by many local residents. We have all frequently been asked for directions to the town centre, harbour and cliffs on many, many occasions by tourists (and coach drivers) confused by the lack of clear signs at the junction. There have been at least two recent accidents and no doubt numerous "near misses". Apart from the potential for a fatal accident there is the inconvenience to tourists and residents alike to consider. Many of us have tried to get something done about the situation, including having signs made and posted at the end of the street. These were (understandably) removed by the Council but the fact that this was tried indicates the level of concern that exists locally and our frustartion at being unable to get anything done about it. I intend to approach Councillor Steve again but don't expect to achieve anything. I raised the subject on this forum to see what level of support there might be. Clearly not a lot!
