Some complaints about noise, and some concerns about a potential increase in capacity, have accompanied recently started works at Los Cristianos harbour. In fact, the works have been planned for a year or so, and the tender was awarded back in February to a company which will replace and redistribute the concrete blocks that contain the harbour. The Ports Authority says that 1,048 of these blocks weighing some 30 tons as shown in the image above will be replaced in the breakwater which has suffered displacement and needs reinforcement. The works will be carried out at night between 8pm and 6am when there is no ferry traffic, and are expected to take ten or so months.
