The lights are to come back to the two stretches of the A-7 dual carriageway (one at Marbella turn-off and the other where the A-7 converges with the AP-7 motorway) that have been in the dark for the last three years.
Marbella town hall is to cover the costs once more. The first phase, to re-light the stretch at Marbella turn-off is planned to be completed by the end of the summer while the second phase, to light up the part of the road between the motorway tunnel at Nagüeles and Puerto Banús is expected to be carried out by the end of the year.
“What we cannot cover is the cost of the lighting inside the tunnel which, as was agreed, should be paid by the company which holds the concession for running the toll motorway,” explained the councillor responsible for works, Javier García.
After almost three years in darkness, these two stretches of road, some six kilometres in total, will have their street lights turned back on - to the satisfaction of the thousands of drivers who take this route every day.
