Benalmadena will continue with single traffic lanes in the town.
BENALMADENA Town Hall has confirmed that the town will continue with single traffic lanes
Javier Marin, the Benalmadena Councillor for Traffic and Mobility, has announced that after a meeting of the Town Hall, in which municipal technicians, local police, emergency, and environment representatives participated, it has been decided to carry out the removal of some of the green bollards that populate the margins of the road, especially in Avenida Antonio Machado, where in places of greater narrowness, the road needs to be wider for emergency situations.
In addition to the elimination of some bollards, the Local Police have put forward the suggestion that access to some roundabouts is extended to two lanes, to allow for easier mobility within the roundabouts of this popular British holiday destination, and Malaga municipality.
Marin affirmed though that the current single lanes will be continued, “This being a measure that had the support of the entire corporation in 2017, including the Partido Popular. Therefore, it is a commitment to humanise the city, and give more prominence to pedestrians, with the aim of being able to deploy a Sustainable Development Strategy (EDUSI) for Benalmadena Costa”.
Finally, he wanted to apologise to all the people who have been affected this summer by the traffic queues that have formed in this avenue, unavoidable due to one circumstance, because the number of vehicles that have been in Benalmadena during this summer period has broken records and has exceeded all forecasts”, concluded the councillor, as reported by 101tv.es.
