This has been highlighted by the municipal official in a visit he has made to the area, where he has explained that for its enhancement, the area landscaping with the planting of 20 units of trees, mainly native species, and the creation of water elements “to favor its integration in the road space since, given its strategic location, it required a treatment according to the place and function it performs”.
This action, the councilor pointed out, responds to a neighborhood lawsuit against the state in which the roundabout was located, that stands over the underground tunnel of the boulevard, under state jurisdiction, “for which we required the authorization from the Ministry to give it a similar image to the area in which it is located.
The works that are being undertaken on the roundabout, whose area reaches 2,800 square metersalso include the execution of new paving and ornamental lighting with 62 projectors, the installation of a 25 meter high mast and an intelligent pedestrian crossing.
According to García, these actions “were necessary to improve the interior spaces of the gazebo, carrying out an urban treatment according to the place and function that this roundabout performs, by becoming the main connection point of the traditional neighborhood of El Ingenio”.
The project, whose completion is scheduled for April, is part of a broader operation of the EDUSI Strategy Marbella, Sustainable City Model, called ‘Urban regeneration of disadvantaged areas of Marbella and San Pedro’, and is 80% co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) within the framework of the Multi-regional Operational Program 2014-2020.
