Marbella Promenade Gets Another Wooden Bridge
Another wooden bridge crosses Arroyo Segundo to provide continuity to the seafront promenade of Marbella
The Mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, visited the completed work on the Arroyo Segundo to Arroyo Pozuelo section, as part of the extension eastwards of the Seafront Promenade, at the behest of the Town Council.
After noting that “this is very important work”, the mayor underlined that in Marbella “we have been pioneers in creating a coastal path, a seafront promenade as befits the volume of visitors this town receives, and providing it with all necessary infrastructure”.
To this effect, she further noted that “it is a question of providing the town with somewhere that can be used for exercise, via the creation of a bio-healthy circuit, or simply for strolling in an exceptional location by the shores of the sea”.
It consists of a macro-project to connect La Bajadilla with Río Real Beach by means of four sections, with the first of them now complete, of some 690 metres length and 2,7 kilometres in total.
The work has consisted of the adaptation of an access road of four metres width with sidewalks on either side, and the recovery of a large part of the right of way area for public use, as well as the implementation of a wooden bridge to cross the Segundo Stream.
“We are starting work in San Pedro Alcántara, as it is joined to Nueva Andalucía by the Seafront Promenade and there is one section left, work on which is about to be started by the company Acosol in relation to sanitation”, said the mayor, who also noted “the work will continue from Puerto Banús to Marbella and the idea was to subsequently continue eastwards in order to have the whole connection of Las Chapas and finish it in Mijas, via Cabopino”.
To this effect, “we continue working to ensure the Seafront Promenade will be passable along 27 kilometres of coastline”, stated Muñoz, who indicated during her visit today that diverse access points to the beach have been created, together with new lighting and street furniture, as well as toilets that will be installed and maintained by the town council itself.
