Canarian transport services will be disrupted on 30 March as a result of a widespread protest being waged by the sector. The protestors’ main focus will be the increasing price of fuel and the lack of control against “the illegals”.
The Asociación de Transportistas de Canarias (Astracan) has said today that the principal problems that affect the Canarian transport sector are now driving a significant number of transport businesses in these islands to ruin.
Among the problems that most harm the legal sector, Astracan says, are the incessant rise in fuel prices, now over the psychological barrier of €1 per litre, an increase of 30% in the last two years.
