  • The works will bring an end to the disruption caused by sewage pipes surfacing during stormy weather

A new 400-metre stretch of the Senda Litoral coastal path project was partially opened to the public in Ventura del Mar, west of Puerto Banús, on Tuesday as the improvements to local infrastructure near being finished.

The main sewerage system that was in the middle of the beach and regularly became exposed and damaged during stormy weather has been removed and, as explained by technicians from the company Sando, has been replaced by a new network of pipes which are covered by the new walkway. A further eight manholes have also been removed.

The half-a-million-euro intervention, also sees new lighting, access, showers and litter bins installed, in addition to the walkway created using the same materials as those used to build the new Caminito del Rey.
