MARBELLA CITY COUNCIL held a meeting in Malaga with the Eastern Andalucia State Road Department to put forward new plans.
The mayor, Angeles Muñoz, along with the deputy mayor of San Pedro Alcantara and the councillor for public works, Javier Garcia, met with the head of the highway unit to discuss plans such as creating a third lane on the road between San Pedro and Puerto Banus and new access to the A7 road from Las Chapas.
MrGarcia said afterwards that the meeting was “very helpful” and that significant progress had been made to advance the A7 access project, which is now just waiting for approval from Madrid before work can officially begin.
The council have also been given permission to start the necessary studies needed for the San Pedro road extension – which citizens requested in order to ease traffic jams in the area.
The meeting also discussed improvements that could be made to increase pedestrian safety and general road conditions.
