Mast removed

A communication mast erected last year at the Vila Serena residential area of Praia da Luz was finally removed on May 18.

Local residents fought to win the right to have this mast, erected close to their homes, removed.

The antenna, according to Lagos Mayor Júlio Barroso, “was illegal”, and the Câmara ordered Telcabo, the company that carried out the work, to remove it in May 2010.

This mast was replaced by a new one, disguised as a palm tree, which has been installed in the middle of a roundabout just 40 to 50 metres away from the one that was removed.
