Hole in the ground

According to the local paper La Dépêche, the hole in the ground in the middle of Cahors is not likely to become parking again for a while. La Mairie says that work will resume at the beginning of October, but the group leading the rearguard action against the subterranean parking garage reckons that no progress will be made before the middle of 2007. Clearly, the presence of uninteresting Roman relics has nothing to do with the delay: this is local politics. What a pity that these shenanigans are taking place as Cahors tries to sell the 700th Anniversary of the mediaeval fortified bridge le Pont Valentré.
