Two new bicycle lanes are to be constructed in Málaga city to encourage locals to take up this form of transport. The new routes will connect up to existing cycle lanes in the city and once the contacts are awarded, completion is expected within six months.
Route 1, with a budget of €700,000, covers the following route:
Through the Alcazaba tunnel, plaza de la Merced, Madre de Dios, Parras, Cruz del Molinillo, puente de Armiñán, Don Juan de Austria, Armengual de la Mota, Callejones del Perchel, the station forecourt to calle Ingeniero José María Garnica.
Route 2, with a budget of €380,000, covers the following route:
A link from calle Ingeniero De la Torre Acosta to Armengual de la Mota, and a link from the Antonio Molina roundabout to calle José María Garnica.
Further expansions of the cycle routes are planned for the future. Málaga currently has less cycle paths than most other major cities in Spain.
The new routes will, at some points, encroach upon paved or parking areas and in total, around 48 parking spaces will disappear.
