Traffic jam

When the school term starts there will be major tailbacks on Palma's arterial roads.


The leader of the Partido Popular at the Council of Majorca, Llorenç Galmés, is warning of "traffic chaos" in Palma when the schools go back. This is because of the unfinished roadworks in the vicinity of the Palacio de Congresos.

Galmés describes the planning for what is the first phase of a "boulevard" type remodelling of the three-lane highway as "disastrous". One lane has been closed despite no work being carried out.

The PP and others had asked for the whole project to be put back until October. It was started in June and then suspended; it still is suspended and has been throughout August.

The Council's original intention had been for the work to be carried out over approximately a six-week period in June and July.

For Galmés, this is indicative of how the left-wing pact at the Council organises things, and he fears that when the school term starts there will be major tailbacks on Palma's arterial roads.

When they build a road the surface is usually great but the traffic flow patterns, markings and general know how on how traffic behaves is pathetically poor, much like the standard of driving.

Noone does anything to improve the road situation in Palma which is a shame. Right next to the exit for the airport there are constand traffic jam due to incompetent line distribution, yet no measures are taken.
