TORREMOLINOS COUNCIL is building a 30-metre high lift to Parque La Bateria.

The €277,000 project is designed to be a tourist attraction as well as provide access between the park and Avenida Carlota Alessandri.

The lift will be partially enclosed by glass, allowing passengers a view of the surrounding areas and will have room for eight people.  The project was finally approved after an agreement was reached between the governing PSOE party and Costa del Sol Podemos.

Works have already begun to Avenida Carlota Alessandri, with bollards removed and the road narrowed from four lanes to two.  It is hoped even more people will now be able to visit the park after it received 310,596 visitors last year.

The park was described by a technical report as, “a natural resource with conditions and attributes that make it different for tourists.  It is a space for visitors which in addition to its beautiful landscape, offers a historic value and an insight into the military systems on the coastal area of the Costa del Sol.”
