Planners in Torremolinos have presented their ideas to the national Infrastructure ministry for new access roads into Torremolinos from the resort's A-7/AP-7 motorway junction.

The move is the last step needed in gaining approval for the town's new master urban plan that in turn will clear the way for a major new development by the motorway, including the huge Intu leisure and shopping park.

An estimated 28,000 cars a day are due to enter Torremolinos this way in coming years once plans are approved.

In its proposal, the town hall says it wants to turn the current slow-moving single lane road into the centre off the motorway into a three-lane avenue and add another distributor road running parallel to it on the other side of the Palacio de Congresos convention centre.

A further parallel route from the A-7 will enter to the west near the Molino de Inca gardens. If approved, the new routes will be paid for by the developers.
