THE Residents’ Association of Campanillas in Spain’s Costa del Sol have denounced the current condition of the bridge that passes over the Campanillas River.

In a letter sent to Carmen Casero who sits on the Board of Andalucia, the Association asks that the bridge which connects to the A-7054 is urgently inspected. This is due to its structure being in “a state of deterioration” where they cite that after many years in operation, there is now a serious danger posed to all individuals who use it.

The Association’s president, Carmela Fernández, visited the bridge earlier this week and highlighted its poor state, where she claims that it is lacking essential support in its pillars. Some of which have extensively corroded that its underlying iron is now showing.

Fernández estimated that the bridge is approximately 35-years-old and must be looked at immediately as serves a countless number of vehicles each week due to its connection with Calle José Calderón.
