The section of the A-7 motorway that runs through Rincon de la Victoria, in the province of Malaga, has long been a cause of complaints from residents.
The mayor of Rincon de la Victoria, Francisco Salado, has demanded a definitive and urgent solution to the problematic issues with the part of the A-7 motorway that passes through the municipality and has managed to get the Spanish Ministry of Transport to commit to making specific improvements to it.
The mayor visited the headquarters of the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda in Madrid on July 27 for a meeting with the Rincon councillor for Town Planning, Miguel Ángel Jiménez, the director-general of Roads of the Spanish government, Javier Herrero Lizano, and the head of the Area of Eastern Andalusia, Salvador Fernández Quesada.
The mayor explained to Herrero Lizano that the three major problems are the poor condition of the surface of the road, the noise pollution affecting the residents and the continuous traffic jams.
“Another step has been taken in our struggle to achieve a definitive solution to these problems. We had to move forward by bringing the problem to the Ministry, which is what we have done,” said Salado.
