  • Benalmádena council wants to reduce congestion on Avenida Antonio Machado along the seafront

Benalmádena council is looking into ways to reduce congestion on Avenida Antonio Machado along the seafront. This is part of a 12.5-million-euro EU-funded project, 'Benalmádena Estrategia 2025. La Costa es Salud', to increase space for pedestrians and to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the resort.

One of the proposals being studied is to reduce the number of lanes in each direction from three to two.
