I’ve been working for a few hours and this was unbearableexplained Ofelia Abella, a supermarket worker in Pedrafita, referring to the remarkable noise increase that is perceived in the street when several trucks pass at the same time in a row: that neither ds falado nor escoitan you.
The mayor of Pedrafita, Jose Luis Raposorecognized the change that will cause the total cut of the A-6 in the town: There’s a lot of traffic, and this is going to be a big problem, it’s just the situation, at the moment, of normality.
