Residents Concerned About Dangerous Construction Site in Quesada
A Quesada resident says she is concerned about the safety of a construction site on Avenida de las Naciones after an electric pole slid into a large hole on the site last Saturday morning. The sliding pole also took down a large part of the pavement with it, after the area had been battered by heavy rain and strong winds.
Bernie Newnes told The Courier:- “ There was a lot of water at the bottom of the big hole which meant this took out all our electricity and water supplies. This worried me because at the end of the cul-de-sac that comes off Avenida de las Naciones, there are four elderly families who live there, including two ladies who have just come out of hospital.”
Mrs. Newnes added that she was disappointed that nobody came from the local council to enquire as to whether their utility services were still running on a wet and cold day, saying that she spotted the Rojales Mayor, Antonio Pérez, at the top of the road on Saturday. She called for further monitoring of the construction site, where she claims that cracks have appeared on part of her road since the work started.
