The Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) has asked drivers to take more care this weekend as the summer ramps up, with an estimated 980,000 cars to hit the roads.
DGT experts have predicted that, in addition to normal traffic, 200,000 long-distance journeys will be undertaken on Malaga roads. A further 780,000 short trips will be carried out across the A-7 and A-45 motorways.
Peak hours are expected to last until 10pm tonight, between 10am-3pm tomorrow and from 11am-2pm this Sunday.
According to Junta de Andalucia representative Antonio Sanz, this summer will see 19.6 million vehicles in Andalucia during the months of July and August, a five per cent increase from 2016.
Motorists have been advised to take particular care on the A-45, which is expected to be congested around the Malaga exit.
