The Estepona City Council informs that it has awarded the works for the comprehensive remodeling of the section of the promenade that runs from La Cala –in front of the San José school– to the Jacaranda building, and which connects with the coastal corridor in the area of La Punta de the Silver. This action will culminate the last phase of renovation of the promenade, which comprises two linear kilometers.
At the moment, the second phase of España Avenue is being pedestrianized, which also includes the remodeling of the section of promenade between Juan Carlos Avenue and Delfín Street. In addition, the works of the ‘Mirador del Carmen’ socio-cultural facility, which is being carried out next to the Punta Doncella lighthouse, will also involve the fine-tuning of the existing promenade in said environment. Also, remember that the Consistory has already completed the remodeling of the first section of the promenade, specifically, the one that is located from Juan Carlos I Avenue to Andalucía Avenue.
The La Cala-Jacaranda building promenade project, which will have an execution period of two months, has been awarded to the company Grulop 21 SL for 761,604 euros (VAT included). The works will be fully financed by the Provincial Council of Malaga through a plan launched by said institution for the 16 municipalities with more than 20,000 inhabitants in the province, in order to promote the improvement of infrastructure and equipment in all localities.
These works will be in line with the section carried out previously, but with the adaptation and execution of new infrastructures according to the needs of the area.
The new work will allow the comprehensive remodeling of more than 400 linear meters of the promenade. Among the actions to be carried out, in addition to modifying the supply and sanitation networks, the demolition of pavements on the promenade, sidewalks of Avenida España, ramps and steps are included.
Walls will also be made to widen the pedestrian crossings in the area of the roundabout on Avenida España and the current lights will be replaced by others with LED light, more respectful of the environment and which will also save energy.
On the other hand, action will be taken to delimit the promenade with the beach area, there will be gardening actions to improve the environment and new urban furniture will be installed, such as benches, fountains and litter bins.
The objective of the City Council is to continue with the remodeling of the rest of the sections until achieving the total connection of the promenade and its union with the coastal corridor that is structuring the entire municipal term. In this sense, it should be noted that it has already been possible to connect more than 90% of the Estepona coast, which means more than 20 kilometers linked by pedestrian paths that enable tourist and leisure use of these spaces by the sea.
