Continual flooding in the Burriana underground car park forced town hall officials to shut it, just days before the start of the Semana Santa processions.  

Mayor Cristina Fernandez confirmed that the location of the car park left it ‘vulnerable’ because of the ‘instability of the hillside’ above the building and the amount of groundwater that it collects.

“We are hoping the closure will just be temporary,” Fernandez said. “Due to the recent rains and the location of the car park we had no choice but to close it.”

She added: “We hope to have all structural and safety problems sorted by the summer.”

  1. Wouldn’t like to live above that lol. That cliff is always falling away and above it are some of the most expensive properties in Burriana.

  2. If the cliff above is unstable why was this u/ground car park built and why were houses built above it. All responsible should be left bankrupt but even that would’nt change the mindset.

HAVE YOUR SAY...
