Street Work on Calle Peatonal Orchilla (the pedestrianised walkway up past Montecastillo)
I walked down the pathway this afternoon.
The only evidence of anything being done on the pathway over the past few weeks is that some of the fencing has been taken down near the Caleta Dorada Reception.
Despite what the Mayor said a few weeks back, there is no way it's going to be finished off by the end of November. Two men were in a pick up truck with a work bench behind Fuertesol this afternoon.
Lots of little bits of paving needs to be finished off, plus the seating areas and lighting. It can't be very peasant walking down/up the path in the dark.
On the Montecastillo playground site they have built a wall along the south side and plastered it - nothing more.
At the end of November it will be 15 months since they started on a 7 month project.
I think the only bit of good news is that the trees are being watered and are alive, as well as lots of weeds around the trunks.

I walked up the pathway the other evening going to View for an evening meal, it was a pleasant walk up as it was still daylight but very disappointing to see the amount of unfinished work. Later that evening I walked back down to Caleta in the dark, it was very dangerous as there are a number of flower beds in the middle of the pathway that are completely unnecessary and are unfinished, you could easily fall into one or trip and injure yourself. My main gripe is the complete lack of lighting. When you consider the money that is being spent and the number of people that use this pathway it is an absolute disgraceful waste of taxpayers and Canarian government money.
