A nice sunny afternoon on Sunday so I took my permitted exercise period for a walk down to and around the marina. According to my mobile's pedometer I covered a total of 6.4km in 60 minutes. I did stop to take pictures!

There's no much to see by way of visible progress on the marina phase 2 site. Roads and footpaths are being laid, trenches for services are appearing here and there but as yet nothing above ground. Various materiel is being delivered, including what look like park benches but with glass tops.

 A big sign has appeared


Still nothing above ground although the landscape is changing slowly.

Thanks.

Yes, on the dual carriageway section between the two roundabouts.

Three weeks further on. The road layout  is complete and fully open although there is possibly unwelcome change to the traffic flow. Men are beavering away all over the site, but as yet there is still nothing above ground. The site of the old livestock market has been almost completely cleared.












The traffic change is as per this little map. This means if you want to come down the hill from Sesmarias and São Rafael and go towards the main road, you now have to turn right and go along the new road to the marina and turn left.

Work continues. The road layout is almost complete. The old farm buildings have been demolished although the well, canals and cistern have been retained and are being cleaned up to be incorporated into the new area. Footpaths are starting to appear.

Thanks, I had seen the picture but lost it. It will be interesting to know who is going to use the two football pitches. The road layout now visible certainly looks like the drawings.

Last October I snapped both the plan from the site office and the model on display so here are both and all I could get regarding the the wall was mirror water so a shallow water feature rather than a lake.

I shot this photo last year and it will be interesting to see how things have changed if we ever get back there.

Here's some shots from the top of Cerro D'Aguia to show much the area being developed is changing now that the road layout is taking shape and traffic now able to use them. There is still not a brick above ground.

The area this afternoon. The geography is changing rapidly as the new roads are opened up to traffic. The road Rua do Farol that I marked two posts above as closed is gone for good. It has been replaced by a new road parallel to it about 150 metres to the west, i.e running more or less up the middle of the site.

Thanks. That will be worth a look next week. There certainly will need to be some flow of water between the two halves.
