Thanks to Kay Masdin for these photos sent in.
Bridge works at Amparo (autoroute to Ponta do Pargo) from levada Nova – bit intrusive at the moment (due to works noise), but hopefully less so once finished.
New reservoir on Paul do Serra due to be finished in August. The levada between the reservoir and Larejo car-park (levada Alecrim) will be reinstated (according to workers we spoke to), though it’s unlikely to retain the charm of the trout-filled, frog-filled mountain stream it replaces. This was always one of our favourite spots on Madeira.
