Local road closes for upgrades

entrada aparcament dissuassiu sant ferranThe Formentera Council's infrastructure and mobility offices wish to announce that due to construction, from this Wednesday, January 10, carrer Guillem de Montgrí will be closed. Carrer Guillem de Montgrí is an arterial that cuts across es Pujols and communicates the main road (avinguda Joan Castelló Guasch) with the town's roundabout.

Changes in vehicle traffic flow
To offset for the closure, a series of changes have been instated to minimise impact on mobility in town. The following are the main changes:

Access to the Sant Ferran school; with access to avinguda Joan Castelló Guasch via two roads —Sant Jaume and Tarragona— still open, access to the school will be unaffected despite the road closure.

Access to carrer Major; motorists can still access the northern stretch of carrer Major from the northern-most roundabout at the town's entrance.

Pedestrian access; carrers Mallorca, Menorca and Havana can still be reached via carrer Alacant, which will accommodate vehicle traffic both ways during construction.

Likewise, drivers must use the ring road in order to travel to the southern parts of Sant Ferran and es Pujols.

It bears remembering that an 70-vehicle overflow car park was opened in early December in a bid to minimise inconveniences caused by the works. The lot is located adjacent to the roundabout.

Work across two sites —at carrers Guillem de Montgrí and València— started this Wednesday and is expected to be complete by May 1.

La Savina lighthouse car park closed during port authority works

apacament savina redux 3The Formentera Council's infrastructure and mobility departments wish to report that the car park located next to la Savina lighthouse will be closed during the start of a project of the Balearic port authority to rebuild the the esplanade. The closure will affect both metred parking spaces as well as the lorry load-unload areas.

Three Kings of the East bring holiday mirth to Formentera this Friday

Foto Reis magsThe Formentera Council's Office of Festivities announces that this Friday, January 5 at 5.00pm, their Majesties the Three Kings of the East will pay their yearly visit to the island. After tying up at the port in la Savina, their Highnesses, page boys and the so-called “Royal Committee” will take to decorated floats as they set out on a tour of the towns of the island.

From la Savina the cavalcade will sally up the main road for an expected 6.00pm arrival in Sant Francesc. Once there, the c will advance into town, mounting carrer Jaume I as they inch toward plaça de la Constitució. There, following a stop at the town's church to give tidings to the baby Jesus, they will pop across the square to the Formentera Council, where from their perch on the overlooking balcony they will greet the people of the village and receive an official welcoming from Council officials.

At approximately 7.00pm, the Kings will roll into Sant Ferran, where they will make their way to the square via carrer Major and offer tidings at the church. The Kings will appear before revellers at the festival tent and children of the town will be able to claim their gifts.

The cavalcade is due to arrive in la Mola at round about 8.00pm. The Kings, making their way down the avinguda, will pull in at the square next to the town's church, before entering the building for the long-awaited moment: distributing their freight of gifts to the boys and girls of the town.

Youngsters in Sant Francesc will have to wait for their presents until Saturday, January 6. That drop-off will play out in Ca ses Monges following Kings' Mass, which starts at 11.00am in the Sant Francesc church.

As the young and old of Formentera's towns await the arrival the Kings this year, they will have circus show entertainment to tide them over too. For 11 years, Circ Bover have shared their original, modern blend of cutting-edge circus acts to national and world audiences. Their assorted act includes live music, theatre and dance.

This year as in those past, the Three Kings of the East come from far-off lands to fill the streets of the island with joy, magic and, while they are at it, gifts and sweets (the cavalcade will carry in tow 270kg of gluten-free candies).

The Formentera Council wishes to thank all those who have made the Three Kings' visit possible: Formentera churches and associated youth volunteer groups, Associació Reis Mags, Casal de Joves, Baleària, Pitiüsa Sud, Llibreria Tur Ferrer, Hostal Bellavista, Frutos Secos Ibiza, Carbòniques Tur, the crew of the Arabian Nights pleasure craft, the Formentera farmers' co-operative and the Council brigade.

On island's behalf, Council offers parting gift to Deportivo Alavés

Foto Placa redux iiToday at noon Formentera Council president Jaume Ferrer presented the head of the Alavés football club with a token of appreciation for the team's visit to Formentera for a Copa del Rey match which pitted SD Formentera against Deportivo Alavés.

Council tees up one-off transport plan for January 3 showdown between SD Formentera and Deportivo Alavés

As SD Formentera gear up to face off against Deportivo Alavés at the island's local pitch, the Office of Mobility of the Formentera Council have put together plans to reroute traffic from an adjacent road, Camí Vell de la Mola. The match, part of the round of sixteen in the Copa del Rey, or King's Cup, will begin at 7.00pm on Wednesday, January 3.

The logic of the plan is to assure orderly, fluid entry to and exit from the Camp Municipal d'Esports before and after the match. The following conditions must be respected by any attending persons:

3.00pm to 10.00pm: Controlled circulation along Camí Vell de la Mola, one-way towards Es Ca Marí from Sant Francesc.
3.00pm to 4.00pm: Vehicle traffic without restrictions.
4.00pm to 10.00pm: Vehicle traffic prohibited except for authorised officials and area residents.
5.30pm: Pitch gates open.

As spectators are asked to arrive at the match on foot, a meet-up is scheduled for 5.00pm in the Sant Francesc town square. From there, all are encouraged to come out to show support for SD Formentera during this historic fixture.

A free pick-up and drop-off shuttle service will be available from 5.00pm to 7.00pm for individuals with special mobility needs. The coach will make four stops in Sant Francesc: sa Senieta, Antoni Blanc fitness centre, Fossar Vell parking lot and the roundabout. Riders must wait at these locations to be picked up. Service will continue after the match.

Additional coaches serving the regular La Savina port-Sant Francesc bus route will accommodate football fans traveling from Eivissa for the event. From 9.30am to 7.00pm, every boat that arrives at the port will be met with a bus to take passengers from La Savina to the Sant Francesc roundabout. Access to the Camp Municipal both before and after the game will be limited to pedestrians. Following the match, buses bound for La Savina will depart from the roundabout. Riders will be charged €3 for a single ticket; return tickets are €5.
