After completion of improvements to Calle Bermeja and Princesa the council now plans to completely renovate Calles Lobatas, Aduar and Rafina.
The projects have been put out to tender with a €1.8 million budget and are scheduled to last around six or seven months.
The mayor, Jose Bernal and Works Councillor, Blanca Fernandez visited the area last week to take a closer look.
The mayor said that the work is aimed at improving an area which has been neglected over recent years and will be a significant boost to its development.
The biggest job will be on Calle Lobatas, Marbella’s longest street, which is set to be entirely renovated. Utilities (electricity, telephone, lighting, mains gas and telecommunications), and paving will all be renewed both on Calle Lobatas and on neighbouring streets (Atarazana, San Diego, Alcantarilla, Principe and Callejon de Postigo.)
One of the most important jobs will be the replacement of separate drainage systems for rainwater and sewage which should put an end to floods.
The paving will also be improved on Calles Aduar and Rafina. The Works councillor explained that the basic services in existence such as drainage are unsatisfactory and on some stretches do not even exist.
