Residents, tourists and traders in the second line of Peguera have expressed their anger and concern about the length of time the works to embellish the popular Calvia coastal resort are taking. In addition to the complaints about the noise, dirt caused by mud and dust and the difficulty in walking along the streets, the traders are complaining about heavy losses. Hoteliers have also said that dozens of guests have asked to be moved to other hotels after seeing the state of the area. Work to improve the drains, water pipes, electricity, television and telephone cables in Calles Orient, Gaviotes and Delfi, which run parallel to the boulevard, started at the end of 2000, but the construction company, Palmenor SA, went bankrupt which meant that the council had to recover the concession and seek new tenders. The new company, Llabres Feliu, resumed work last October and should have completed everything by the start of the season. But, seven months later, the delays are causing concern. A council spokesman admitted things were moving very slowly and said he could understand the complaints of residents and traders. Part of the delay is attributed to modifications to the initial project and the original budget has gone up from 160 million to nearly 200 million pesetas.
