The PP party in Bigastro are now saying that the work on Calle Purisima is a “swindle”. They claim that money which was destined for the project has been diverted to pay other bills. They go on to complain that the work is not being carried out in accordance with the original plan. For example, there were supposed to be 14 workers on the job which should have been completed in two months. PP say there are only 2 or 3 workers who have now taken five months to get so far.
I have to say, in my opinion, there was nothing wrong with the original granite cobbles. They just needed a good clean and relaying where there had been movement; in fact that is what they seem to be doing on the last sections of the work. However, I think the pavement each side is an improvement and will look good once the new benches and planters are in place.
They say Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither obviously was Calle Purisima.
