No start date has yet been announced by Valencia’s education ministry for the building of a new infant and junior school to replace the “temporary” cabins that have been used by the Colegio Playas de Orihuela situated at the end of the Playa Flamenca market road.

The six point six million tender was awarded to Civimed SLU at the start of May but the Informacion newspaper has reported unease from parents that nothing has so far happened, with the ministry telling the paper that the start of work is “imminent”. The project will take 18 months to complete.
