The first stages of the works will concern the terraces of the many bars and restaurants located in the square, although the town hall has assured that they will be finished before the end of July.
The first phase of the comprehensive renovation works of the Plaza de Olé in Benalmádena Costa began this week. The project will include the pedestrianization of the secluded square, which local residents and businesses have been asking for for several years. The first phases of work will concern the terraces of the many shops installed on the square, although the town hall has confirmed that this phase will be completed before the end of July.
The works will transform the neighborhood into a new leisure area, with shaded areas and a central garden with a fountain. Work will also be carried out on the underground car park to solve the problem of flooding during bad weather.
The entire project will have an execution period of 110 days and an investment of more than 500,000 euros.
The mayor of Benalmádena, Víctor Navas, visited the square earlier this week to see how the work is progressing and to assure residents, some of whom have questioned the “timing” of the work, that “completion is expected before the end of this summer. ”.
Tucked away in a quiet corner just a short walk from Puerto Marina, Plaza de Olé is one of Benalmádena’s most popular squares and attracts thousands of tourists due to its location and diverse selection of bars and restaurants. .
