THE Fuengirola to Marbella train line extension has been touted as one of the most urgent infrastructure projects in Spain.
The Association of Spanish construction companies Seopan has placed the long-hoped extension on high priority, which has boosted calls for a national government budget to be allocated for it.
Two studies have concluded that the construction of the railway which would run along the coast would save €295 million per year, placing it above 813 other infrastructure projects in terms of importance.
They include Madrid and Barcelona rail improvements and work on Madrid’s ring road.
It comes after Malaga’s government budget was slashed to €130m, meaning there is less money to fund much-needed infrastructure projects.
