The budget for the works amounts to €528,000 euros and will take ten months to complete.

According to Malaga Hoy, Malaga Town Hall is promoting the new regeneration program with plans to extend the already semi-pedestrianised area of Carreteria-Alamos down to the Plaza de San Pedro de Alcantara and the Plaza del Teatro.

These works are aimed at regenerating both squares and integrating them with Calle Carretería. The hope is the route through the medieval wall is given continuity.

The area covers approximately1,000 square metres and priority is given to the foreseen incorporation of sustainable elements with the use of natural recyclable materials and the installation of low consumption lighting. They also plan to recover the existing cobblestone in Plaza del Teatro.

The creation of inclusive spaces will be carried out through three areas: two static areas, one in the Plaza San Pedro de Alcantara, designed as an extension and continuation of Carreteria street and another, in the Plaza del Teatro in order to enhance the value of the ficus and as a place for citizen use.

The project also includes the introduction of children’s play zones in the Plaza San Pedro de Alcantara in the hope of developing the artistic skills of children of different ages.

This project, is part of the Edusi Malaga-Perchel-Lagunillas project, 80 per cent co-financed by the European Union, through the European Regional Development Fund
