For anyone who is interested there is an article in Sa Veu, the local newspaper for Soller, that the finishing work on the seafront is to begin in April 2010 and finish in January 2011.
The article says(if I understand it correctly) they are going to move the tramline to the middle of the road and have a walkway by the sea. They are still talking of putting a boom out to sea and creating more beach. This work will be ongoing during the summer - previous work was only done during the winter months.
I wonder if this is to tie in with the opening of the new 5*Jumeirah hotel in the spring of 2011?
