The local street market in Torrevieja (Alicante) will finally relocate to a new designated site away from the town centre.

The move has been pending for many years, but will finally take place on the 12th of May, relocating to a purpose-built area near to the local waterpark and hypermarket shopping centres.

Traditionally, the market, known to be one of the biggest in Europe, has been held on the streets which have had to be closed before, during and after the weekly event, and posing a risk to local residents due to lack of emergency service access.

Local buses have already had their routes redefined to take in the new location.
