ONE of the island’s infamous accident blackspots is to be remedied this summer.
In a sensible scheme, drivers will be banned from entering the Formentor peninsula, near Pollensa, to make is safer for cyclists and prevent overcrowding.
Under the test scheme only buses and locals will be allowed to take the 20km drive to the famous lighthouse during the hours of 9:30am until 7pm in July and August.
Tourists who wish to enter the stunning northern tip of the island will have to take a special shuttle bus from Pollensa Port.
“We now just need to clarify what the parking lot will be like for the buses at the lighthouse,” said Pollensa’s mayor Miquel Angel March.
