The busy Coín road through the Las Lagunas area of Mijas Costa is set to be improved in the coming months after Mijas council took over its maintenance from the Junta de Andalucía regional government. All 5.7km of the road from the junction with the A-7 motorway, near the water park, to rural Entrerríos will now be down to the municipality to manage.
Mijas's planning and infrastructure departments will prepare an action plan that looks likely to include widening the carriageways to a two lane road. According to local councillors, controlling the road, which is officially known as the A-7053 from Alhaurín el Grande to Fuengirola, is important as it is now largely built up and part of the Las Lagunas urban area and can be fully connected to other road improvements being carried out in the area.
Mijas council has also asked the Junta to cede control of the road up to Mijas Pueblo from Fuengirola and the road from Mijas Pueblo to Benalmádena.
