Two months after the island was battered by hurricane winds and torrential rain, repair work in the north of Majorca will start this week. The area around Alcudia and the Port of Pollensa were the worst hit by the storms with millions of pounds of damage being done to shipping, properties, roads and the beaches. The Balearic Environment Ministry announced yesterday that work in the north east will get under way this week and engineers will start repairing the beaches and coastline in the Port of Alcudia, Barcarés, Port de Pollensa and Cala Sant Vicenc with the operation being stepped up over the next few weeks. The first wave of the operation will involve the regeneration of the beaches, repairing public facilities and services, street lighting and the roads. Yesterday's announcement was greeted as good news by the local community in the Port of Pollensa. Lately there have been a growing number of complaints about the local government's apparently slow reaction to the situation. Central government has made it clear that all repair work has to be completed by the end of April, early May, in time for the start of the tourist season.
