The refurbishment of the station de Cercanías in Plaza de La Nogalera, in Torremolinos, is a step closer to getting off the ground. Renfe announced yesterday that it had approved the tender for works for the total redevelopment of the station, which currently is in violation of the accessibility law with no lift, among other shortfalls.
The project, which has been delayed for years by the Ministry of Development, will now go ahead following an investment of 7.5 million euros, one of the largest sums invested in the town in recent years. The works, which will take place over the space of 18 months, will include the installation of lifts, the extension of the platforms and the creation of a timetable that can be viewed in all major parts of the station.
Renfe will improve facilities to allow blind people to better navigate the station, as well as better signage.
The current fittings will be completely revamped, especially the electric works. These are the only details that the organisation has discussed in detail as of yet.
The works should solve the ongoing problem of lack of accessibility in the station, one of the most popular in all of Malaga province. It is used by over 6,000 passengers per day.
