MALLORCA TODAY - Porto Cristo bridge to be demolished

The Balearics Supreme Court has ruled that Riuet bridge in Porto Cristo, closed for some months, must be demolished within seven days. The demolition, originally ordered last year, had been put off and property owners who had been affected (for many years) by the proximity of the bridge were to be awarded compensation. But Manacor town hall now faces the almost inevitable, of having to pay some one million euros to bring the bridge down. It also faces the problem of what to do with the services that run across the bridge, such as electricity cables, and of doing this right in the tourism season.
