Camino Portugués / JAVIER MARBÁN. La Voz de Galicia

The Portuguese Way, which goes into our country across the Minho river to anchor in the Pontevedra town of Tui, offers a very special view of the southern Atlantic coast of Galicia, near where runs to reach Santiago. However its route is not all it should for sure increasing number of pilgrims who choose this route to make your Camino (7.5% of the total from Tui choose from). Along this route are some dangerous points that some associations have already been charged with pointing.

The Galician Association of the Camino de Santiago is preparing these days a dossier to deliver to Administrations with a proposal to divert the path of the Portuguese Way about 50 meters in its passage by the municipality of Mos to achieve avoid two dangerous expecialmente points for pilgrims . It is a railroad crossing, which does not even have pedestrian level crossing and crossing the N-550, which takes place on a bend at kilometer 153 especially dangerous for its zero visibility.

The diversion route of Portuguese Way proposed by the association would move the route just a few meters so that pilgrims could cross the national road bound Mos by a line that has limited 50km / h for vehicles and also could cross the railway through an underpass.

Igual que hemos tenido esta semana buenas noticias, otras son preocupantes. Me parece genial que se pueblos y demás se pongan de acuerdo para potenciar algunas rutas, pero creo que es más importante "remodelar" ciertas vías como estas que se mencionan para evitar disgustos...

A veces no nos damos cuenta pero el papel de las asociaciones alrededor del Camino de Santiago es enorme, son un verdadero faro

Pues si simplemente es desviar un poco el Camino para mejorar la seguridad de los peregrinos no veo problema en que la Administración lo acepte.

Esto es un peligro la verdad... tienen que construir pasarelas o pasos subterráneos.
