  • The city hall has said that bicycles will be able to cross at a maximum speed of 10 km/h with priority given to pedestrians at all times

Malaga city hall has backtracked this week following indignation from cyclists who had spotted that the new as-yet unopened bridge across the Guadalhorce estuary had signs installed which said cycling was prohibited.

Crossing the bridge, when it finally opens, will be allowed by bicycle, said councillor for Mobility José del Río, at a maximum speed of 10 km/h with priority given to pedestrians at all times.

The opening of the bridge would not only save cyclists from crossing the river using the more dangerous road bridge, but also make it easier for people from Guadalmar and even Torremolinos to cycle into the city.

It is expected to be officially inaugurated this Sunday.
