Highway Robbery

2 min read

Torrevieja mayor, José Manuel Dolon is to complain to the European Union over the Madrid central government not spending anything on converting the N-332 highway around Torrevieja into a dual-carriageway, despite the fact that the project has had a budget for the last eight years.

Dolon says that it has become an annual farce and charade where the central government declares that there is money for the upgrade but nothing happens. The mayor wants Brussels bosses to investigate what is going on with the funding for the eight kilometres of work which he says should have started already, and at the very best will not be completed until 2020.

The mayor says that the money has been around since 2007, and he produced a recent letter from the country’s acting development minister, Ana Pastor, which proves that the 16 million euro project has been budgeted for. The Green Party mayor also took a swipe at the acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy for visiting Torrevieja at the start of the general election campaign last Friday and having nothing to say on the stalled N-332 works.
