Adra’s unloved transformer demolished


THE electricity transformer at the Carretera La Alqueria and Camino del Molino crossroads in Adra has gone.

Long, drawn-out negotiations were necessary before agreement could be reached between the town hall and power company Endesa, revealed Public Works councillor Ignacio Gines. 

Now that the transformer has been moved at last in response to years of requests from residents, the site will be given a facelift with pavements and a resurfaced road. 


Road safety in the immediate area will be much improved as visibility at this point will no longer be impaired for drivers or pedestrian in an area with busy traffic, the councillor said.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
