main-road-argLast Sunday night and during the early hours of Monday, GC-500 through Arguineguín was re-asphalted between the first roundabout and the whale’s tail roundabout. With this work complete, and with the exception of a few minor details like road markings, the works on this main thoroughfare through the town are now finished, say the local town hall of Mogán.

After a year and a half the work has finally been completed. Having been originally awarded in April 2015 and according to the town hall, after the new government group took over in Mogán, it was discovered that serious errors in the project needed to be rectified, including an additional €100,000 to finish the work.

The original project, which had been budgeted at a total of €1.120,000 had not include, among other things, the channeling of high voltage lines, telecommunications or sanitation connections, actions that were essential and necessary for the correct execution of the work.
