RESTORATION starts on landmark bridge in Malaga’s Estacion de Cartama
Long-awaited restoration works have begun on the beautiful iron bridge overlooking the Guadalhorce river in Malaga. The landmark, built in 1931 in the Functional style, is located at Estación de Cártama, a municipality about 17km from Malaga.
The bridge is currently only for pedestrian use, but local councillors hope that by giving the iconic structure a face-life it will encourage more walkers to use the area as a viewpoint.
Over half a million euro will be spent on repainting, cleaning and strengthening the bridge, while floodlighting will also be installed; the project, due to begin in the last week of November, is set to be completed in six months.
The mayor of Cártama, Jorge Gallardo, said: “After several years waiting for paperwork to go through, work is starting that residents have been crying out for for some time.”
