WORKS are now underway to create a pedestrian walkway for Almeria city’s iconic ‘Cable Ingles’ mineral loading platform.
The early 20th century landmark is undergoing a major €2.2 million restoration. Works have already been carried out to reinforce and protect the metal structure.
The project will see the Cable Ingles opened up to the public next year with a raised walkway connected it to the Parque de la Estacion and the old railway station, and turning it into a viewing point offering outstanding views of the provincial capital and the bay.
Almeria Port Authority President Jesus Caicedo said he is confident the Cable Ingles “will finally open up to the public for their use and enjoyment in spring 2021, and will become one of the best viewing points in Almeria.”
