I gave an explanation in this column of last weeks edition
as to why the Egg was built in the middle of the new roundabout to the entrance
of the town of San Antonio, which was a tribute of Christopher Columbus.
for our seventh weekly photographic series on the face-lift of San Antonio, which
took place at the beginning of the1990s, we are showing several pictures on the
finishing point of the Egg.
In these pictures shown today
the palm trees have been planted the length of both sides of the new duel carriageway
that runs along the sea front and the finishing touches are being applied to the
new roundabout and the Egg.
However, there is still the
arduous work yet to be started on reclaiming the extra twenty-five metres of land
from the sea that will make way for the new promenade with its jetties for private
boats moorings and the landing-piers for the beach ferry-boats.
