AT the end of this year or the beginning of next, Palma Council plan to begin redevelopment work along the city's seafront.
As a priority, a roundabout is to be built which will decongest the new boulevard running from the Moll Vell (Old Wharf) as far as the entrance to the eastbound motorway.

The city's mayor, Catalina Cirer, and her deputy, Javier Rodrigo de Santos, presented the project outline yesterday, featuring plans drawn up by architect, Joan Busquets.

This major programme will affect the so-called “Gas Coast” up as far as the Palma ringroad. It is estimated that the project will be complete by 2012.
According to De Santos, the idea is to begin to make “specific modifications” to Town Planning ordinances, which amongst other developments, will allow the building of the future government conference centre. This process alone could take 9 months, since the changes will have to be approved in both the City and Council and at regional government level.

Running parallel to this move, the City Council is planning to invite all political parties and representative citizen groups for a debate on the scheme, which is of major importance to the future of Palma. A key objective of the programme is to upgrade the currently run down eastern sector of the city.
