The Marbella Town Hall has completed the replacement of 2.5 kilometers of railings on the promenade between Ancón beach, at the height of the Victor’s Beach beach bar, and the Don Pepe Gran Meliá hotel, a performance that has had an investment of 850,000 euros, as reported on Tuesday by the Councilor for Works, Diego López.

The mayor has highlighted that “now it has a renewed image and in keeping with a city like Marbella” and has advanced that before the end of the year it will begin to be executed a new phase of 2.1 kilometers to the Port of La Bajadilla.

“This action also represents a major improvement for the safety of pedestrians”, explained the mayor, who has detailed that the previous infrastructure has been replaced by a new one made of galvanized steel “to which a treatment has been applied so that the effects of humidity and saltpeter do not affect it, as was the case with the existing one”.

“In recent years they had been repaired and reinforced several times, but before the severe deterioration and oxidation that they presented, they finally opted for the installation of completely new railings”, pointed out López, who stressed that the work “has been very laborious since it has been necessary to replace more than 700 square meters of marble pieces that serve as subjection”.

Likewise, it has indicated that 900 meters of granite elements and 540 square meters of pavement have been erected. In all, he has pointed out that 850,000 euros have been invested charged to the Boardwalk Conservation Plan.

The second phase of the action, in a 2.1-kilometre stretch on the Marbella promenade, will begin in October, according to the Councilor for Works, who has reported that the intervention will have a budget over a million euros, co-financed by the Andalusian Government and which will also include a reserve of balustrades to replace those that are damaged. “It will maintain the same aesthetics as the rest of the route”, he has advanced, while pointing out that “the new infrastructures have a treatment to prolong their useful life”.
