A SMALL stretch of Salobreña’s promenade has caved in under the weight of a road sweeper.
The incident occurred today (February 9), approximately 100 metres away from the Guadalfeo river’s mouth, when a sweeper machine belonging to cleaning company Cespa sank into the pavement after a section collapsed.
It is believed that the damage caused by last week’s heavy rains and sea erosion had left the pavement unsupported, becoming unstable and thus collapsing.
Fortunately, the machine’s driver did not suffer any injuries.
Mayor of Salobreña, Gonzalo Fernandez Pulido, has once again pleaded for help from the central government to repair the severe damage to the town’s promenade, the cost of which is estimated at €250,000.
