Three-hundred forty old signposts removed

RutesverdesThe Formentera Council's Office of Infrastructure began a push last Friday, March 20, to vacate signposts associated with the island's now obsolete networks of nature trails and cycling routes.

Crews have also targeted dilapidated signage on public roads and land plots. In all, 340 signs have been marked for removal. The €14,000 effort, including treatment of waste materials, must be completed within two weeks.

Pointing to the run-down signs' disparate designs and conflicting information, infrastructure chief Rafael González said the change was "a necessary next step following last September's upgrades of the nature trail signposts".
