According to an answer from the central goverment to the party Izquierda Unida

The Spanish government said it was unaware of the Gran Scala project

(Spain).- The Central Government has responded to Representative of the political party Izquierda Unida (IU), Gaspar Llamazares, that it "is not aware of" the Gran Scala project, a leisure and gaming complex that, according to the coalition, "wants to transform a desert zone in Huesca into the European Las Vegas.”

T

he answer coincides with the null interest that administrations alien to the autonomous administration have shown every time they were asked about the macro-complex.

The government, according to IU, has taken eight months to answer “with two lines” to representative Llamazares, who recorded in March a question in the Congress to know if the socialist government was willing to accept the demands of investment and public infraestructure claimed by the promoters of the idea, as the direct access from the AP-2 or an AVE station.

For IU, the project wants Ontiñena, a council with 600 neighbours, to become a big city, with an initial forecast of 5,5 million visitors, and that could increase up to 12 million in 2020, becoming the biggest leisure and entertainment complex in Europe, which, according to the leftist political party, is absurd.

The coalition insists in the fact that, while the government affirms to be unaware of Gran Scala, different ecologist, political and neighbours organizations, among them, the IU, have warned that this project has “an unsustainable development model from the economic, social and environmental point of view”.

IU representative, Adolfo Barrena, will raise a parlamentary question to the president of Aragon government to know what does it think of the ignorance of the national governement in relation to the subject.
