Plans to link technological facilities in Alhaurin de la Torre with Malaga airport

Jobs boost plan at ‘airport city’

THE Mayor of Alhaurin de la Torre, Joaquin Villanova, has said that he is confident about plans for the so-called ‘airport city’, as long as the Junta de Andalucia, “does its homework.”

The plans for technological facilities in Alhaurin de la Torre linked to Malaga Airport have met with support from local institutions who believe it will promote financial development and employment in the town.

The first two buildings are already going ahead in El Peñon-Zapata-Molina area thanks to EU funds of more than €3 million.

 But plans are being held up by the Junta de Andalucia. “The ball is in their court now more than ever,” Villanova said.

The project has so far met with some problems with the Junta as the land where the ‘Airport City’ or ‘Technopolis’ is planned is involved in a legal matter.

However, the town hall hopes that the matter will be resolved so work can go ahead.

It has complained that the Junta is damaging chances for creating work in the province, and points out that Alhaurin de la Torre is the area which has made the most effort to develop a project which was authorised by the Junta.
