After several months of work by the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, traffic on the Cancelada junction on the A-7 motorway in Estepona has been flowing again. The central government delegate in Andalucía, Pedro Fernández, attended the inauguration ceremony of the recently renovated infrastructure, commenting that the works had been completed two months early. "A 33% reduction in the planned work time, with the importance that this implies for the 50,000 users who use this point of the A-7 motorway every day," he said.

The Cancelada junction allows access to several population centers on both sides of the road and to a series of surrounding beaches.

This measure forced users to make the U-turn three kilometres later, at the Benahavís junction, "a situation that complicated traffic in an area with high mobility, hence the government decided to carry out an emergency complete repair of the overpass, amounting to 774,773 euros and 6 months of execution".
