Motorists have been warned to expect traffic disruption along parts of the Costa del Sol due to road resurfacing and tunnel works on the A-7 motorway which will start tonight at midnight.

Work will start this Monday 18 March, specifically between kilometres 1.450 and 3.600 of the MA-20 Ronda Oeste (Guadalmar and the Parador de Golf), near the Plaza Mayor retail park and a key exit for Malaga Airport. Traffic will be affected in both directions, so drivers are being warned to pay extra attention to signage changes at exits one and three of the busy road. The overnight carriageway closures will be in place from 12 midnight until 7am each day, with work scheduled to finish on 22 March (which marks the start of Easter week). The 1.83-million-euro project will involve strengthening and improving the infrastructure and waterproofing expansion joints on the road surface.

Tunnel works on A-7

Spain's Ministry of Transport is also carrying out nighttime works to adapt the emergency exits on the Churriana and San Pedro Alcántara tunnels on the A-7 motorway. The work will cost 3.76 million euros and traffic is expected to be affected between 18 March and 26 June, except during Easter week (22-31 March).

On both carriageways, both in the direction of Cadiz between km 1054.260 and 1055.260, and in the direction of Malaga between km 1055.260 and 1054.260, the left lane will be closed at night, always leaving the right lane free for traffic at all times. During daytime hours between 7am and 9pm, there will be no lane closures whatsoever, nor at weekends, and traffic will return to normal from 7am on Fridays.
