THE town of Campos is a major crossroads for people journeying from one side of the island to the other but at weekends, negotiating the roundabouts and making certain of the correct turn-off becomes a major challenge.
Campos copes with traffic coming from Palma, Porreres, Felanitx and surrounds which is heading for Santanyi, Sa Rapita and Colonia de Sant Jordi. The roads which wind their way through the interior of Campos and the traffic lights at the exit of the town in the direction of sa Rapita, and on towards the beaches of es Trenc and ses Covetes are two of the most complicated and cumbersome hurdles to cross. At the beginning of the present Balearic government, Campos Town Council signed an agreement with the Council of Majorca over the use of a series of roundabouts to redirect traffic in whatever direction it was travelling away from the centre of the town. However, the one-way system has meant that all traffic, regardless of its destination snarls up at a single set of traffic lights. The town hall in Campos has asked the Council of Majorca to put up signposting which will redirect traffic to alternative roundabouts.
