From this footbridge, a part will be made of printed concrete (464 meters), and the rest will be constructed in wood. Besides, the walkway the work includes two bridges. The first of the bridges will have a length of 20 meters and the second of 32 meters. Also, landscaped areas will be designed, new lighting and urban furniture will be placed out along the promenade.
The mayor of Estepona has indicated that, at the moment, two other sections of the coastal corridor will be compleated in the area of Los Llanos and the area of Velerín. Both sections, are located in the eastern part of the municipality, will be completed by the end of this summer
The coastal corridor project aims to unite the more than 22 kilometres of the coastline through pedestrian paths to allow citizens to walk and practice sports outdoors. This project, which will extend throughout the municipality, will change the face of the coast and put values on spaces that are currently isolated and cannot be enjoyed by most of the people. In this sense, this project is already offering citizens and tourists the possibility of experiencing new areas of the city that until now were inaccessible.
