Mobile mast

TELECOMMUNICATIONS COMPANIES TMN, Optimus and Vodafone have agreed to remove a mobile phone mast in Ferragudo, following protests and a petition signed by more than 1,000 residents and visitors.

Graco Trindade, a spokesman for a commission set up by Ferragudo residents against the mast, said: “The telecommunications operators have promised, in writing, that they will install the antennas in an alternative location.” (See The Resident edition, August 29).

He added: “They have not yet given a date because they first have to carry out studies to find a new location that will not harm anyone.”
