THE new Port of Pollensa office was officially opened yesterday morning by the Minister for Public Works, Housing and Transport, Mabel Cabrer.
The new building has cost the Government a little over half a million euros and is part of the overall programme to improve the quality and facilities of the government managed port authorities. In total the construction works lasted seven months and were carried out by the companies Jutoba and Man.
The new building offers a series of improvements for the fishermen, who are thankful for the new changes as the former port buildings were in dire need of knocking down. The building consists of a ground floor, where there is a metal staircase to take people up to the first floor shop. The ground floor has been divided into two with a patio in the centre. On the left-hand side there is an area for the fish market, as well as small fishing houses and a room for the nets. On the other side there are shop spaces, the port office and changing rooms. On the first floor there is a office, a balcony and a port services office. Furthermore, a new pergola has been installed near to the taxi and bus stations, so that travellers can shelter from either the heat or cold whilst waiting for the transport. The morning opening was also attended by the Mayor of Pollensa, Joan Cerda, who was accompanied by almost all the councillors from the government team.
After the opening the Mayor and the Minister for Public Works visited the construction work at the promenade which is to be repaved.
This work will be resumed after the tourist season has come to an end. For the first time they also raised the blue flag.
