Mijas reserves land for coastal train in El Ensanche de La Cala

  • The town's mayor wants four stops in Mijas

Mijas town hall has announced that it has provisionally reserved land in the El Ensanche de la Cala area for a hypothetical coastal train.

The councillor for Urban Development, Andrés Ruiz, explained that the objective is for an extended Cercanías train to run through the municipality of Mijas.

Last January, Minister for Development Íñigo de la Serna presented two alternative options for the train route, which would connect Marbella and Estepona to the current railway network.

One idea is for an underground line which runs below the A-7 road, the second is the creation of a line that runs parallel to the motorway. Neither would run directly through the town of Mijas.

“We want the line to connect the city of Malaga with the rest of the localities on the Costa del Sol, with at least four stops in the Mijas area,” said mayor Juan Carlos Maldonado.
