Scores of fuming citizens have taken to social media to lambast Lagoa’s new red-coloured town centre streets.

Protests on the ‘A Voz de Lagoa’ Facebook group focus on “why the council thought it would be a good idea to paint the streets red?” Some say the colour “completely ruins” the town centre’s “charm” while others joke that it was chosen to celebrate Benfica’s imminent football champion title.

But Lagoa council guarantees the town centre will be much better off once the project is completed. “When people see how it is going to turn out, they are going to change their minds as many already have,” a council source told Barlavento newspaper.
