EL JUNCAL: Full remodelling expected to take around 90 days

WORKS have begun to Mijas’ El Juncal road linking Santiago and Molino de Viento.

The multi-thousand Euro project will connect the main roads as well as offering access to four others; Virgen de Monserra, Virgen de la Cabeza, Virgen del Pilar and Virgen del Rocio.

The works were awarded to company Fernndez and Lind Construcciones and are expected to take around 90 days.  The town’s Mayor, Juan Carlos Maldonado, explained, “we continue to bet on El Juncal by giving it new infrastructure which will improve the quality of life of residents. This will bring value to the area and give fluidity to traffic, as well as improving pipelines and eliminating architectural barriers.”  He added, “this  will bring a main artery to the neighbourhood, offering greater security and mobility to neighbors.”

The stretch of road has a length of 155 linear meters and the current paving and finishes, both on sidewalks and on roads, are in poor condition, requiring full remodelling.

Mayor Maldonado added, “we are going to improve all our infrastructures and, in this case, we are going to create ones. There will also be for the first time separate networks for sewage and rainwater, as well as public lighting, electrical and telecommunications networks and paving to join roads together like Virgen del Rocio and Virgen del Pilar, which used to have only pedestrian access, and will now be equipped for road traffic.”

Construction works for a new parking lot on El Juncal are now also in the planning stage, with a tender having been drafted and offered out.  The contract will now be awarded in the next few days.  Mayor Maldonado explained, “by the beginning of next year we will be able to put out to tender the execution of works that, in turn, could begin to take effect around May 2018.”
