MORE than 2,000 of the 7,000 buildings with more than three floors in Malaga province don’t have a lift according to the ombudsman for the province. In Andalucia, more than 500,000 buildings with more than three floors don’t have a lift, and more than a million people suffer the consequences of living without one, especially the elderly and disabled.

Some can’t leave the house, and depend entirely on friends and relatives to get them what they need.

 

One of the worst affected areas in Malaga city is the Dos Hermanas district, but the same problem exists in Ciudad Jardin, Cruz de Humilladero and Huelin.

The Malaga ombudsman’s office has requested that the Junta de Andalucia go ahead with existing programmes to install lifts in buildings which lack them, although this is often a problem because all the residents in the building have to agree on how much they are going to pay to provide the amount not subsidized by the Junta de Andalucia.
