Work on the Santa Ponça roundabout will be finished by Easter next year, according to Calvia town councillor Neus Pacheco. The work is being carried out by the Balearic ministry of public works at a cost of 700 million pesetas. The roundabout has to be enlarged because the Palmanova-Peguera road is to be widened. This is one of the busiest roads on the island, used by an average of 40'593 vehicles a day, nearly 2'000 of them coaches and lorries. The new project is for an elliptical roundabout, with an interior measurement of 45 metres at its widest point and 26 at its narrowest. There will also be a tunnel for two way traffic and pedestrians. Pacheco claimed that neighbours accepted the road works with an air of resignation, as they know that they are only temporary and will solve the current traffic problems.
