In bid to rig ses Bardetes for high-speed connections, partial closures of avinguda Isidor Macabich

Foto Macabich 1The Formentera Council's mobility office reports that from tomorrow, Friday February 9, road work at the crossing of avinguda Isidor Macabich and avinguda Vuit d'Agost, part of a bid to equip the ses Bardetes neighbourhood with fibre optic internet connections, means drivers travelling on the first of the two avenues will face intermittent restrictions once schools let out for the weekend.

Rafael González, chief of the department, warned the upgrades would translate into extra noise for residents of the area. “We sincerely apologise, but this work is key to getting ses Bardetes high-speed connections before year end”.

Traffic control measures
The work will affect the flow of traffic on avinguda ("avenue") Isidor Macabich, which will be reduced to just one lane. To minimize headaches for motorists, special signage will be used to ensure continued vehicle flow in both directions.

In the event weather conditions prevent crews from performing the work this weekend, the project will be pushed back another week.
