I was going to call this post “Work starts on the AVÉ”, but two signs does not a high speed railway make. Although a few red posts have been stuck in the ground at random. I’m tempted to move one about a meter to the right, just to see what will happen.
The signs were put up yesterday (I’ve only just found the cable for my camera phone to download the photo) by a construction company that had “especialistas en fiestas y grupos de musica” on the side of the lorry. I originally thought they were going to have a concert there.
The signs have gone up where the AVÉ will pass the old Turre – Los Gallardos road. From there you can see up the valley to where they are digging the Sorbas tunnel, near La Herreria. I’m working on an interesting article for the next edition of The Reader, so stay tuned for the story behind the rails.
