  • Workers took four hours longer than expected after encountering "highly-resistant materials"

The demolition of the bridge over the MA-20 by Arraijanal caused tailbacks on Sunday as workers took four hours longer than expected after encountering "highly-resistant materials".

This bridge will be replaced by a smaller one which will join up with the new access ramp to the Plaza Mayor shopping complex and outlet village whose opening date, originally set for 22 October, has not been confirmed.
