A NEW €1.1 million cycle path along the Guadalmedina river looks set to get the go ahead from Malaga City Council next year.
The bike route, which will stretch from Malaga’s Arminan bridge to the foot of the El Limonero dam above the city, is expected to go out to tender in early 2020.
Malaga City Council’s land management chief, Raul Lopez, said that the project now just needs the approval of the Board of Directors for town planning.
The Guadalmedina cycle path was first announced in 2016 and was due to be bid on in Spring last year, but the development was delayed due to administrative problems.
Since the initial plans were announced the proposed bike route has been extended to cover Huerto de los Claveles street and La Rosaleda bridge.
The cycle route is part of the city council’s plan to encourage people to use the river more. Other mooted future projects include building several square bridges to connect neighbourhoods on the east and west sides of the river.
