  • Three areas in central San Pedro are set to be remodelled while the Parque de la Constitución will see its auditorium reopened and green areas reconfigured

The modernisation of the centre of San Pedro will continue into this year after a further three major projects were announced last week.

The most important will see Plaza de la Iglesia completely pedestrianised. The 1.4-million-euro budget will go towards improving access by swapping the existing steps for ramps, increasing green and shaded areas with the installation of pergolas and making the area better suited for hosting major cultural events.

Elsewhere in San Pedro, Calle Pizarro and its surrounding streets will also be pedestrianised while Plaza 4 de Diciembre will see one of the roads removed to maximise space. These projects will cost 1.5 million and 224,000 euros, respectively.

These are not the only projects upcoming for Marbella. Its Parque de la Constitución is in for a refit with a project to reopen the almost derelict auditorium. A project reconfiguring the green spaces and planting more trees will be put out to tender.

The budget approved by Marbella town hall is 425,000 euros and the works should be completed within three months of starting.
