These works, which are carried out on an area of more than 165,000 square meters in the northern part of the city, include the construction of seven connecting roads, the creation of 16,467 square meters of green areas and 472 parking spaces. .
The town hall of Estepona informs that the works of urbanization and equipment in infrastructures and services of the sector “Camino de Las Mesas” are completed at 40%. This is a major project as it will add value to this highly developed area in the north of the city.
The deputy mayor in charge of development, infrastructure and tourism (FIT), Ana Velasco, explained that the development of this area, which covers an area of more than 165,000 square meters, includes the creation of seven connecting lanes for road traffic and one lane for pedestrians, which will improve communications throughout this area of Las Mesas.
In addition, the basement will include all the pipes for the water supply, sewer, gas and telecommunications networks. These works, which began last August, will also generate 16,467 square meters of additional green space, as well as the creation of 472 parking spaces.
So far, 90% of the earthworks have been completed and all slopes have been seeded. In addition, all the roads are already under construction, the most advanced of which is the one parallel to Calle Méndez Núñez, where all the networks have been installed and are practically finished. The construction of the breakwater wall that runs along the road in front of the Avenida Puerta del Mar roundabout has also been completed.
The planned execution time is 18 months and the investment of 9 million euros, which is carried out through a system of action by compensation, as provided for in the town planning regulations.
The execution of this action will complete the development of the entire left bank of Avenida Puerta del Mar and will give continuity to the north with the Las Mesas area, an area that was already developed in 2016.
In addition, this northern area of the city has seen great progress in terms of urbanization and the provision of infrastructure and services, since in January 2020 the development of the Juan Benítez sector was completed, which allowed to realize the northern ring road of the city, connecting the fairground, the Felipe VI auditorium and the new athletics stadium to the northern part of Juan Benítez and connecting it to the easternmost part of the city center. This project has enabled the creation of nearly half a thousand parking spaces and nearly 20,000 square meters of green space.
It should also be remembered that over the past decade, development, urbanization works and the provision of services and amenities have been encouraged in many areas of the city. Concretely, works have been carried out in Valle Romano, Isdabe, Casasola, Puerta del Mar, Ortega y Gasset, El Campanario, Arroyo Enmedio, Calancha and Antonio Machado, among others.
Likewise, the government team continues to carry out actions to enhance the urbanizations of the city with different action plans such as the connection of areas or asphalting and improvement works. Thus, among the actions carried out recently are the link road between the northern area of Cancelada and Bel Air and the road linking Atalaya and Isdabe.
