Following the opening of a new connecting road between the recently-constructed developments in northern Fuengirola and the coast a few weeks ago, Fuengirola town hall have this week announced a 1.5-million-euro project to improve road infrastructure around Torreblanca.

The works, which are already under way, include resurfacing around a dozen roads, updating road markings and signposts, installing new lighting and replacing old benches and other street furniture.

According to José Sánchez, councillor responsible for Works and Town Planning, this 1.5-million-euro investment will see a "significant" improvement in the "quality of life of nearby residents".

The works, being called out on Calles Vencejo, Lirio, Cordoniz, Pinzón, Faisán, Cigüeña, Brezos, Camachos, Zorzal, Luganoz and Pensamiento will not affect traffic in the area.

Another improvement will come in the form of a new recreation area next to the Juan Playa chiringuito beach bar. The so-called Plaza de las Naciones will feature a water fountain and will pay tribute to the various nationalities of those living in Fuengirola.
