A leading expert has called on vehicle usage to be curbed on the Rojales Carlos III stone bridge. Valencia culture ministry inspector Santiago Varela visited the site last week, and said the bridge had no structural concerns, but did suggest that vehicles using it should be restricted by introducing one-way access. 

Rojales council wants the bridge and the associated waterwheel, which was built between the 16th and 18th centuries, to be classified as a site of cultural interest. The authority though is also keen to get to the bottom of what is causing some dampness on the west side of the bridge and carried out work to see if some modern water pipes are behind the problem.
