New one way system at Punta del Faro

A couple of weeks ago the council, in their infinite wisdom introduced a one way system round half of the urbanisation at Punta Del Faro.  I suspect it resulted from inconsiderate double parking adjacent to the refuse bins, which occasionally stopped the collection lorry uplifting the rubbish.
Unfortunately the signing is so badly located, and there is a complete lack of useful road markings that the same inconsiderate drivers, or perhaps a whole new lot are ignoring the one way system completely.  I am not talking a small number here either.
So, in order to alleviate 90 seconds on potential inconvenience to a refuse lorry, the road is now dangerous.
Be warned therefore that should you be obeying the one way system you should have no expectations of not meeting oncoming traffic, and because of the poor layout you are now forced to drive on the wrong side of the road, directly into the path of the halfwits who think they are too important to take the extra 20 seconds to do it properly.

Services Available Get Physiotherapy At Home

At The International Wellness Center Manantia in Torrox Costa we understand that some people may not be able to travel the distance to our clinic but they still require treatment and assistance from a Physiotherapist.

People need this home physiotherapy service for a number of reasons; people are often too injured or in too much pain to leave the house whereas in other cases people simply prefer to receive physio treatment at home where they are most comfortable.

Our Physiotherapist regularly provides our home visit service to patients with Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson.

Home physiotherapy is also quite appropriate for Post-Surgical patients like hip or knee replacements as well as those with falls and balance problems and of course all of the injuries and orthopaedic conditions that we regularly treat in the clinic can be treated in your home.

Physiotherapy at home allows the family to be involved in the treatment and gain a better understanding of the condition, as well as giving them an opportunity to ask the physio any questions and also learn how they can help out.

Please note, home visits are dependent on the availability of our Physiotherapist. Prices are depending on the zone you live.

You will find me at Manantia –International Wellness Center in Torrox Costa.

Av. Garcia Peñalver (Av. del Faro) Blq. 76 Bajo 6, 29793 Torrox Costa (Málaga)

Recommendation – Building, decorating and house maintenance around Torrox

We have had work done recently including decorating, plumbing and general repair works by Pinturas Boral. They have been excellent – on time, professional, tidy and good value.

They can do bigger projects like bathrooms and kitchens also.

Manuel there speaks some English but it is best to let him know by email what you need doing and then he will arrange to come to see the job and give an estimate.

His email address  is manucebadillas @ gmail dot com (remove spaces). He lives near Torrox.

Best regards to all.
