These relate to infrastructure - pavements, roads, signs, lighting and so on. They are reminding the town hall that Playa de Palma is the largest tourist resort area in Mallorca and that it requires far greater attention than it has been receiving.

Of these deficiencies, 2,025 have to do with the poor condition of pavements, while 1,089 point to blurred road markings, illegible or broken road signs and traffic light poles covered with stickers.
