On this link are details of Caleta´s proposed new bus station: http://www.ayto-antigua.es/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=142&Itemid=

It´s on 6000 square metres of land behind the Las Lomas complex, with the access off the Castillo roundabout. It´s going to cost 620,000 euros and will take 10 months to construct.

It will have a taxi rank, cafe and tourist information point.

There´s no date set for starting the work.

The bloke in charge of transport at the Cabildo says any delay has been down to the ayuntamiento in Antigua not ceding the land required as rapidly as they might have.

Politics slows lots of things down here.

it will be good for caleta, but it does seem a lot of money as there is only the num 3 bus that goes to caleta, is there plans for other routes to use the new bus station,?

The number 16 bus also calls into Caleta. It´s the Puerto Gran Tarajal bus.

The number 10, Puerto to Morro Jable, also stops in Caleta.

They are spending money on bus stations in Gran Tarajal, Costa Calma, Morro Jable and Corralejo.

Over the past week or so, they have put a fence around the site, and there is a portacabin on site.

I noticed the fence had gone up, or half of it, last week.

I think I'll start a photo project to track its development. Do you think they will mind me climbing on the castle to take the pictures?

You´ll be OK DD, as the metal fencing is only on the front of the site. It´s a mesh fence on the side and back.

A photo project would be a good idea.
