Elderly Torremolinos residents stranded by lift closure

ELDERLY and disabled people in El Bajondillo, Torremolinos, have been stranded for almost a month as the public lifts between the beach and the upper town remain closed.

Two homes and the lifts were evacuated and fenced off when part of a concrete wall collapsed. A technical report confirmed the danger of the wall collapsing completely, forcing the lifts to remain closed while the wall’s owners make necessary repairs.

The elderly, disabled and those with pushchairs or luggage are most affected by the lack of lifts and are demanding a solution is found to get them running again.

The only available options meanwhile are to climb the entire staircase or to use a hotel lift, which costs €1 per ride, double the price of the public lifts, and only goes half way up.
