Work in harbour village making good progress

After the usual controversies and objections when work began in November last, the work on first phase of the re-development of the centre of Vueltas is making good progress. It is a tough time for the shops, bars and restaurants in the area with traffic disruption, some noise and lots of dust as unwelcome visitors, but once finished the area will be much more attractive and once again the focal point of Valle Gran Rey (see plans). Traffic into the village itself is currently being diverted towards the beautiful harbour beach, then up to the left at the beach and down left again along a narrow street into the village. But it is much more comfortable to park the car in the harbour and walk the few steps into the centre - it may look closed-off but there is pedestrian access to all areas at any time during construction. Below some recent images of the work being carried out:

This short stretch of road will never reopen but will very soon be a pleasant plaza
with some trees and benches and room for outdoor tables of the cafes/restaurants
