THE mayors of Torremolinos and Benalmadena, José Ortiz and Victor Navas, have signed an agreement to construct a bridge that will link the districts of La Leala Norte and El Pinillo.
As a result, planning for the project will begin to establish the investment necessary, and the corresponding timescales.
Jose Ortiz said: “This is a necessity that has been a long time coming, and I have met many residents who have requested it.”
More than 2,000 locals are likely to benefit from the bridge, and Victor Navas commented that “it is a historic agreement for the two municipalities, and will provide a real solution to a local need.”
The connection will greatly improve pedestrian security and access, while reducing traffic and boosting relations between the two localities.
