Pego-Sagra road rockfall hazard
PEGO residents have warned that the road to Sagra is peppered with rockfalls, posing a danger to drivers.
The CV-715, which locals in both villages use up to four times a day if they commute, becomes a perilous obstacle course with chunks of stones in the middle of the carriageway – sometimes as many as five or 10 large ones in the space of a kilometre.
This is even more of a hazard as the road is very narrow with several sharp bends, and no street lights.
Some drivers say if there is nothing coming, they stop their cars in the middle of the highway to move the rocks, but the mountainside crumbles onto the tarmac every time it rains.
Sagra and Pego town councils say the road falls within the regional government's remit and all they can do is report the problem.
Mayor of Sagra Juan Antonio Carrió says he has 'not received any written complaints' about the state of the road, and that residents 'ought to know already' that the CV-715 is 'dangerous in the rain'.
