BETWEEN 2010 and 2013, the Balearic government is to invest 1.8 million euros in adding another 35 kilometres to its 20 kilometre tourist cycle track, along with signposting and information plaques about local cultural heritage.
Following the signing of yesterday's agreement with regional Tourism Minister Miquel Nadal, the Mayor of Campos, Guillem Ginard said he was well satisfied with the development and said it was the first time that the Balearic government had paid personal attention to the municipality.
He said the cycle route will provide a link between the town's historic centre, its residential areas, farmland and the sea. When asked whether the cycle track will compensate for the fact that the Son Baco golf course project in Campos is now definitely not going ahead, Ginard said that one thing had nothing to do with the other as the Ministry for Tourism did not get involved in urban planning. He said though that he was going to continue to fight for the right to build the golf course because it would provide an enormous economic boost to Campos. It would create jobs and guarantee an income for the community, Ginard claimed.
