Construction of the high speed train line through Orihuela continues to cause a great deal of disruption. Next Wednesday, the route from Bigastro via the underpass will be closed meaning that traffic into the city from the south will then have to enter from Arneva.
The Councillor for Infrastructure, Pedro Mancebo claims that they knew nothing about this until yesterday. He says that suggestions that have been made to the company who are constructing the new rail track have been ignored and that there was no prior agreement about alternative traffic routes.
The road into Orihuela from Correntias carries over 6,000 vehicles a day and so its closure will cause a lot of inconvenience to say the least.
