A TRAFFIC black spot in Mijas is being made safer after two residents offered up plots of their own land to enable the road to be widened.

A 200,000 euro project has begun to straighten out the tight bend on the Entrerrios road, which is particularly dangerous given its narrowness.

It has been made possible thanks to two owners giving up 320.5 square metres of their land – something town hall planning boss Manuel Navarro is particularly grateful for.

“We would like to publically thank the house owners, who have given up their land without asking for any recompense,” he said.
