Mogán begins work on coastal pedestrian walkway and recommends motorists avoid the area
Works to recondition and reinforce the coastal pedestrian walkway running alongside the GC-500 old national road begin today, Wednesday 5 July.
The pedestrian walk will be closed and traffic restrictions will be put in place. Mogán Town Council recommends that motorists avoid, as far as possible, this stretch of road, and those who need access to the Patalavaca area should travel along the GC-1 motorway, to Puerto Rico and approach from the other side.
The conditioning and reinforcement work will take an estimated 9 months along 733 meters of the pedestrian walkway that connects Arguineguín with Patalavaca, specifically from the Sunwing Hotel to the Doñana Apartments.Starting on Wednesday the route will be closed off, so citizens who want to get to Patalavaca on foot, from Arguineguín, will need to walk down to and along the lower sea-front promenade that starts in the area of Costa Alegre.
Traffic restrictions will be in place throughout the works, with one of the lanes being closed, so traffic will be slow through the area with traffic lights regulating flow in both directions. The town hall recommends avoiding the area along this section, proposing instead that motorists access the Patalavaca from the GC-1 highway (via Tauro).The walkway is about 25 meters above sea level and has privileged views along the Costa Mogán. The work is being financed with half a million euros from the Spanish Government’s Ministry of Tourism, while Mogán has provided €75,000 of municipal funds.
