Several people were seen to be tip toeing through the site. No work was under way, it being a Sunday. Big holes everywhere, no élf ´n´safety concerns here.

Fat chance of anything so elegant here. And probably no soon as that and the related work been finished then it will be dug up again for some purpose.

Most of the holes have been filled in now. Large piles of stones and sand are being delivered to resurface the roads.












And down at the pier end

The area is starting to get back into shape, with the calçada being laid down and most of the big holes now filled in.

Carlos from the Viking will be pleased, perhaps.

Let's hope it's finished before they are thinking to open up again early in May. In theory Sherry's could be open now for the outside tables, but with nobody about not worth it.

I forget to mention that the road outside Inatel is still blocked. No driving that way across town until whenever.

That and the work on Rua Alves Correia must be a problem for the Giro buses. Rerouted presumably.

All done, except for the pedestrian street down to the square and (I hope) to put the bus shelter back.
