THE Balearic ministry of public works yesterday demolished the railway bridge designed by architect Gaspar Bennassar, despite criticism from environmentalists. Work started at 6.30am, dismantling the decorative parts of the bridge which will be preserved and rebuilt elsewhere, and by 10am the excavators had moved in to demolish the concrete central structure. A ministry spokesman said that work had started early because there was less traffic than usual in the area.
Both the ministry and the Palma city council have been criticised for the demolition.
Neighbours called the police when work started.
