When you travel around the area you see so many half finished projects. You can't help but feel it would have been better if they had not been started in the first place.
Because of the economic crisis, the fear was that the large projects started by the Government might suffer the same fate but no. It seems they have set aside 555.7 million Euros from the 2011 budget so that projects in Alicante Province such as the final phase of the high speed rail link with Madrid, the new airport terminal at El Altet and the central motorway can be finished.
Government sub-delegate in Alicante, Encarna Llinares, said that despite an average 30 per cent drop in spending in the rest of Spain, investment in Alicante Province will rise by 2.3% in real terms.
