The mayor of Mijas, Juan Carlos Maldonado, has written to the national government asking that Mijas municipality isn't forgotten in any new rail project for the western Costa del Sol.

While the debate centres on whether a slower Cercanías line or a faster line with less stops would be better to reach Marbella, Maldonado has reminded ministers that Mijas covers several urban centres between Fuengirola and Marbella and that a priority has to be to link those up.

He is calling for a station in Las Lagunas and three along Mijas Costa.
