LOCAL DONATION: Denia town hall receives land to widen dangerous pavement Photo credit: Denia town hall

THANKS to a local family, a blackspot can disappear at the Joan Fuster-Diana intersection in Denia.

The pavement narrows to nothing where the road curves into Cami Sant Joan, at a point where the town hall has long wanted to improve pedestrian safety.

This is now possible thanks to a local resident who has ceded enough of his land to widen the pavement.


“Some months back, a car ran into a woman and her baby in a pushchair,” said the landowner’s son-in-law.

There were no serious consequences, he added, although there could have been, prompting the family’s decision to cede the land.

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.
