Dear Sir,

I was surprised, and concerned, to read your recent report on the building of the Puerto Pollensa bypass. Whilst I appreciate that the constant flow of traffic through the narrow streets has long been a cause for concern for the local residents, my only concern is a purely selfish one! My wife and I always stay in an apartment in Vicente Buades, overlooking the Boquer Valley and the mountains, and we would very much like to retire to a small villa in the Boquer Valley. However, I just cannot see how a bypass could go anywhere but along the Valley. Do you have any details, maps, etc. of the route of the bypass? If so, is there any chance of you being able to e-mail them to me? Any information you have would be very gratefully received - I just don't know where else to try to get it from.

Many thanks, in anticipation.

Yours faithfully
