Garrucha port ends free parking

Garrucha port has ended free parking, and you have to pay and display to park there.

Failure to do so will result in a stiff fine by a little old man in a fluorescent jacket whose toothless grin masks a grim determination to bring in enough fines to justify his job.

Garrucha council assures me that it’s nothing to do with them – the port area is dependent upon the Junta de Andalucia owned company Puertos de Andalucia SA.

The state owned company is trialling the pay and display method until September 15, at which point they no doubt realise that parking returns to normal in the town and nobody is going to pay to park there.

The council says it has no plans to put the still wrapped up parking metres along the paseo into action at this time.
