  • The move comes due to the increasing traffic from a growing local population

Mijas council has carried out a feasibility study into swapping the pedestrian bridge that runs over the A-7 linking the two sides of Las Lagunas for a road bridge.

It says that the increasing population in the area means driving around the Las Lagunas district of Mijas Costa, which is divided by the motorway, has become harder and this is a possible solution.

If it gets permission from government it hopes to include the scheme in its 2019 budget.

The pedestrian bridge is well-known to A-7 motorists for its 'You are in Las Lagunas' painted sign.
