Campos.—Central Government's Coastal department which has the final say over any waterfront development anywhere in the country, has put forward a proposal to Campos and Llucmajor town councils. The project consists of building a seafront walkway linking the three resorts and diverting traffic away from the coastline.

The project has already been put out to public scrutiny to give local business and residents a chance to have their say over the pros and cons of the development. Now that the time for lodging comments is at an end, it appears that Campos town council and a good number of residents in Sa Rapita are not happy about some aspects.

Partido Popular Mayor of Campos, Sebastià Sagreras has been the first to point out that there seems a great deal lacking in overall coordination. “It's something that the Coastal department, the local councils and the Roads department of the Council of Majorca need to put their heads together over,” he claimed yesterday.

Sagreras said that the Coastal department has simply proposed to take traffic away from the seafront but they haven't put forward alternative routes. He said that in Campos, land expropriation to accommodate the coastal link-up has already been undertaken but apparently in Llucmajor no such moves have been made.

Campos council are also baulking at the 5.5 million euros the project will cost.
