Once again construction work on the new main square in Santa Cruz has been delayed.

The local Cabildo admitted that the deadline of 30th April has had to be put back yet again, after more delays in the completion of the project.

The Cabildo, back in February, announced that the renovation of the Plaza de España would be finished by 17 March, although it immediately rectified and changed the date to 30 April.

It now looks as if the square, which has a giant lake in the middle, will not be opened to the public until late June or early July.

The corporation has also admitted a cost overrun of €4 million, 25% of the original cost.
