New green bus lane opens for Malaga Tech Park commuters to help ease Spain’s rush hour gridlock

Thousands of people are thought to have left Madrid when the lockdown was announced

A NEW €2 million bus lane was opened today for commuters travelling from Malaga and the metropolitan area to the Malaga TechPark in a bid to alleviate rush hour congestion.

The BUS-VAO lane (VAO which means passenger vehicles) will be reserved for buses and cars carrying multiple people  – single occupant cars will be forbidden from using the lane.

The dedicated lane runs along the A-7056 between the A-357 and A-7054 motorways towards the entrance of Malaga TechPark (formerly Andalucia Technology Park).

The new lane will be located on the right lane of the Campillos exit of the A-357 road at link number 61 and on the right lane of the A-7056 road towards the tech park. 

Initially the lane will be active on weekdays from 6:30am to 9:30am.
