The City Council of Marbella has completed the comprehensive reform of La Cantera de El Ingenio streetin San Pedro Alcántara, a work that has meant the modernization of all infrastructures and that it will improve pedestrian mobility in the area, as announced this Friday by the mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz.
This has been highlighted by the councilor in a visit she has made to the road, where she has been accompanied by the deputy mayor of San Pedro, Javier García, pointing out that “it was a large project and highly demanded by the neighbors because it is an old area, with more than half a century that required updating”.
Muñoz has specified that the works have been undertaken by a local company within three months and have contemplated the installation of new sanitation and supply pipes of water, telecommunications networks and efficient lighting, harmonizing with what is being done in the rest of the municipality in a clear commitment to sustainability”.
On the other hand, it has specified that it has acted in a total area of 650 square meters and 140 linear meters that have turned the street into a single platform, following the model of the ‘downtown plan’ with wider sidewalks of noble materials delimited by planters.
In addition, it has put the emphasis on accessibility, since they were very narrow roads in which people with reduced mobility had difficulties to travel. “We continue to promote improvements throughout the El Ingenio area and soon they will be extended to the main avenue and El Chopo”, has advanced.
He also stressed that “the residents are very satisfied because there has been a radical transformation of the road, that responds to their needs and will have repercussions on their quality of life”.
For her part, the president of the Julio Romero de Torres Neighborhood Association, Manuela Torío, stated that “we are very satisfied with the result of a work that has completely renovated the streetboth from an aesthetic point of view and in terms of infrastructures that had become obsolete over time”.
