ORGANISERS are warning that a big triathlon sporting event on Spain’s Costa del Sol this weekend will necessitate some road closures and public transport changes which could cause some delays to journey times.

The Ironman event in Marbella includes swimming and running events but it is the cycling stage that could cause some disruption on Saturday, April 27.

The single-loop 90 km course starts on the famous “Golden Mile” before heading out to Ojen with athletes racing through Monda, Coín and Cartama before returning to Puerto Banus.

Diversions will operate and organisers say: “We apologise for the inconvenience caused and request you maximum understanding and patience.”

Corte Ingles and Marina Banus areas:

On Saturday, April 27, from 07:15 to 14:00 hours, the N-340, from Puerto Banus to the Piruli in both directions, will see its affected traffic as it passes through the central lanes of the same cycling test of this event, so traffic can only circulate in the right lane of each direction.

Any change of direction can be made in the overpass of the Hotel Puente Romano area.

Access to Puerto Banus on the N-340 from Marbella can be done through the A-7176 Puerto Banus – Nueva Andalucia – Istan exit (leading to the Vasari urbanisation roundabout).

The access to Puerto Banus by the N-340 from San Pedro de Alcantara can be done by the exit of the Lola Flores Avenue, by the normal of Puerto Banus and also by which gives access to the roundabout of the English Court.

Exit 174 towards Puerto Banus will be cut off to traffic from Wednesday, April 24 until the end of the event.

La Cañada area:

The A-355, you will see its affected traffic as it passes through the lanes in the direction of Ojen – Marbella between the roundabouts of McDonald’s and C.C. La Cañada cycling test of this event, so that traffic can only circulate through the lanes in the direction Marbella – Ojen to C.C. The Glen

The access to Ojen should be made from the A-7 through the service lane located behind Mundo Pasta and using the two lanes in the Ojen – Marbella direction, dividing them into one uphill and one downhill.

Los Granados area:

Saturday, April 27, from 07:15 to 14:00 hours access to your area will be completely cut, and you can only leave it at that time in the area of La Alcazaba to the N-340 by a lane of residual traffic, since the other cycling lanes will pass the cycling test.

For any change of direction towards San Pedro Alcantara, you will be able to do it in the overpass of the Puente Romano Hotel area.

The N-340, from Puerto Banus to the Piruli in both directions, will see its affected traffic as it passes through the central lanes of the same cycling test of this event, so traffic can only circulate in the right lane of each direction.

Any change of direction can be made in the overpass of the Hotel Puente Romano area.
