Calvia yesterday debated new legislation banning noisy construction work during the summer months in the municipality's resorts, but the picture appeared slightly different along the sea front in the popular holiday destination of Santa Ponça. As part of the Pla Mirall “beautification” project, which was cited as one of the reasons the city was filthy, by Palma residents last year, the bulldozers and construction workers have moved into Calle Ramon Moncada in force, taking the road and pavement up and obviously making a noise. All at a time when the first wave of Easter holiday early birds are about to arrive for a relaxing, quiet Mediterranean holiday. Road works have been a major bone of contention between Calvia residents and the local council over recent years and one of the biggest complaints from tourists last year was that there is too much “concrete” and too much construction. Despite the building freeze, recently over ruled by the high court, the horizons over many resorts have been dotted with high rise cranes with the rumble of dumper trucks breaking the silence.
