Following the conclusion of the first phase of infrastructure improvements in the Torreblanca area of Fuengirola before Christmas, the second, more complex phase has been put out to tender.
Residents in this area have been demanding these improvements for many years, with many streets' utilities more than 50 years old and in urgent need of renovation.
The project, which has been given a budget of 2.3 million euros, will see a dozen streets (Calle Vencejo, Calle Lirio, Calle Codorniz, Calle Pinzón, Calle Camachos, Calle Lugano, Calle Zorzal, Calle Hiedra, Calle Brezos, Calle Cigüeña, Calle Faisán and Calle Pensamiento) completely overhauled.
Constructed in the 1960s and 70s, many of the streets in this 'urbanisation' have a peculiar lay-out, different to much of the rest of the town. Some streets are very wide and others don't have any pavements for pedestrians.
However, it is the streets which don't have any sewerage or lighting systems at all that will require most work to bring them in line with the town's PGOU (town master plan).
