The Marbella Town Hall has completed the comprehensive remodeling of Avenida del Trapiche with the opening to vehicle traffic of the section between Torrevigía street and Arias de Velasco avenue, in which the third and final phase has been carried out, as reported by the mayor, Ángeles Muñoz, on Thursday.
This has been highlighted by the councilor, who has visited the performance together with the councilor for the sector, Diego López, and the manager of the Hidralia concession company, Fulgencio Díaz, where he has stressed that “it has been a large and complex project which has meant the complete renovation of the infrastructures, sidewalks and urban furniture in one of the main roads of the city”.
At the same time, he stressed that “it was a very necessary work that will improve the quality of life of residents and it will revitalize the entire environment, turning this area into a great avenue”.
The first mayor has detailed that the works will be complemented in the next three weeks with the connection from the Trapiche roundabout to Arias de Velasco avenue which, as he has specified, “is going to be done now because in the month of September, with the start of the school year, traffic increases and it would be unfeasible”.
He recalled that the action has been carried out in coordination with Hidralia, has had a cost of 3.5 million and has been developed in an area of 10,000 square meters.
renewal of sewerage and supply networks
The project has included renovation of sewage and water supply networks, replacing the existing fiber cement one with a cast iron one; telecommunications; gas pipelines and electrical installation and irrigation.
In addition, it has been improved pedestrian mobility with the expansion of the width in some sections of the road and the elimination of architectural barriers, and the area has been equipped with new led lighting and large trees.
The councilor has specified that the action “has been developed in three phases, of between six and seven months of execution period each, so that it would affect as little as possible the economic activity of the businesses and the daily life of the residents in an area with a high population density”.
Lastly, he indicated that “as of today, the vehicles can travel in one direction or the otherdepending on the section, from the Trapiche roundabout to Calle Salvador Rueda” in Marbella.
