POLITICIANS in Mijas have asked the Junta de Andalucia to refurbish the Mijas Pueblo-Benalmadena road.

The Junta had improved several section of the roads linking Mijas Pueblo with Fuengirola and Alhaurin El Grande, but left out the Benalmadena road. The narrow through-road is used by hundreds of vehicles and cyclists every day, which, at times, lead to accidents due to its poor state, according to the Partido Popular (PP).

The A-386, which is owned by the Junta de Andalucia, is in need of asphalt, according to Santiago Martin, a member of the local party.  He explained, “in March we asked for the works and the Junta said they would do it. Several sections of the roads connecting the town with Fuengirola and Alhaurin El Grande have been paved and decorated and it seems that this road has been forgotten.”

The curved road presents visibility problems for road users and has several potholes.  Along the road are also several housing estates, houses and residential centres, including Bellavista and Osunillas which make daily use of it.

The PP say given the road’s proximity to the Sierra de Mijas and many cycling routes, hundreds of cyclists pass through it,posing an accident risk, particularly as the narrow road is two-way. Buses connecting Mijas and Benalmadena also travel along the road.

Martin concluded, “on the edges of the road you can see the remains of car and bicycles which have been in accidents. All of us who use it are extremely cautious, but it is also necessary for it to be in the best possible condition to avoid more accidents not only for those who regularly use the road but also for tourists.  This is about the road safety of our neighbours, tourists and cyclists.”
