WORK has been going on since the middle of December to remodel the installations in the port of Sa Marina in Valldemossa.
Work is extensive and firstly, the position of the ramps to get boats in and out of the water will be modified.
In addition to this, the sheltered dock has been repositioned and dredged to give it a depth of 2 metres instead of 1.5 metres.
This work has meant that divers have had to take part in the reforms, which are expect to finish sometime in April, before the Summer season.
However, the work will not mean an extension of the port, which has 52 moorings that are controlled by the port of Soller. The car park will also be improved.
Finally, a small building has been demolished in order to build a new one for port services. The works, according to the Balearic Ministry for Public Works, are being done to give a better quality service to port users.
These works are part of an agreement signed between the Spanish and Balearic Governments, although it is the Balearic Government which is financing the project, which has an estimated cost of more than 600'000 euros.
The contract for this work was awarded at the same time as the contract for the stabilisation of the Cala Fonoll cliff in Andratx.
These works are also being carried out at the moment and are also the responsibility of the Balearic Government. The budget for these works is 758'918.25 euros.
There was also a project for the stabilisation of the mountain at Sa Marina, but this was ruled out by the Balearic Demarcacion de Costas department after the Socialist Government came to power.
The residents in the area opposed the action because of the impact of the work and it remains suspended indefinitely.
The specific budget for the Sa Marina reforms is 659'101.55 euros, and the contract was awarded to a temporary company union (UTE) consisting of Construcciones Ferratur and Navieras Daedalus, who expect to have the work finished in four months.
