After many years of talk about a new, or proper bus station at various locations in the town, some quite bizarre, it looks like the decision has been made just to carry out improvements at the current layby, although no official mention of the works being carried out at the moment.

Toilet units have already been put in place and the poles are up for a sun/rain shelter, long overdue. Much of the road near the cafe, La Parada, is currently being dug up and it looks like it will be a while before we see the finished product.

Previous suggestions for the new bus station have been the old covered market, Sala Mercado, in the centre of town – a bit bizarre – and a completely new facility on the N-340 just past where the Donkey Sanctuary was located, a very out of the way location by any definition.

The newly elected administration has pledged to report events in a more timely manner than has been the case in the past, but we will have to wait and see on that one.
