my 'Links' page, click on 'Water' in the top menu bar, or scroll down the

"Water Reserves" section by clicking

in my 'Links' page for Public Holidays for 2018 to include details of national,
regional and local holidays in the Murcia Region of Spain. Still available
there are Public Holidays for the remainder of 2017 for Murcia Region,
the Valencian Community ('Communitat Valenciana') and throughout
Andalucia. Please visit my 'Links' page and the 'Public Holidays'
section there to find this information, or you can go straight to the relevant
section by clicking
NB/ The consolidated list of equivalent Public Holidays for 2017
for the whole of Spain is also linked to in the 'Public Holidays' section
in the 'Links' page. To find details of local holdays in regions of Spain
other than Murcia Region, the Valencian Community and Andalucia, you will
need to visit their respective websites or obtain information
locally. 11JAN17 - Toll rates effective 1JAN17
for all Spanish toll motorways supported by the State have been reduced by
a further 0.4% as compared with those for 2016 (the reduction effective 1JAN16
was 0.6% compared with 2015), the second year in a row that tariffs have
fallen (after several years unchanged), in accordance with a formula agreed
in 2002; toll rates are usually revised at the beginning of each calendar
year. The full tariff details for 2017 have now been published, and as expected
most tariffs remain unchanged, but a few have shown minor reductions, both
probably to try and reflect accurately the net effect of the changes last
year and this year, allowing for rounding errors. Please visit my 'Location'
