The Strip

Albufeira’s Oura Strip, one of the region’s most famous nightlife hot stops, has been neglected by the Câmara, say local business owners.

Business people along the Avenida Dr Francisco Sá Carneiro say the local council continues to invest in redevelopment works in the older city area but has not carried out any “major” improvement projects on the Strip for more than a decade.

Business owners say the area’s security levels need to be boosted, street lighting installed and the road requires resurfacing.

Albufeira Mayor Desidério Silva says the area is the next on the agenda to be redeveloped but funds are still needed for the €10 million project.
