Mijas council plans to spend over one million euros on long-awaited road improvements

  • The council plans to begin three major road improvement projects and has put out to tender three contracts, totalling approximately 1.8 million euros

The Mijas councillor for Infrastructure, José Carlos Martín, has announced that the council plans to begin three major road improvement projects and has put out to tender three contracts, worth approximately 1.8 million euros in total.

The first improvement, which residents have asked for on numerous occasions, will be carried out on the Paseo de Andalucía in La Cala. At the moment the road is a safety hazard as its current drainage system does not drain water fast enough in times of heavy rain, leaving the road flooded. However, with a 689,000-euro investment, the council hopes to have resolved the problem within four months.

With the same objective, a second set of roadworks will take place in Las Lagunas. The council will spend 890,000 on installing rain collectors to prevent excess rainfall flooding the roads in Río Darro and Molino de Viento too.

On Tuesday, José Carlos Martín added that a third contract, worth 315,134 euros, has also been put out to tender for the remodelling of Calle Kennedy, Calle Jaén and Calle Miguel Márquez in Las Cañadas.
