Estepona installs a bridge over the Arroyo Dos Hermanas to widen the coastal corridor.

Estepona Town Hall has installed this Wednesday a wooden bridge over the Arroyo Dos Hermanas to continue advancing in the coastal corridor project, an infrastructure of 23 metres in length which is part of a section that will run between Benamara and Playa de Baños which has an investment of 344,511 euros, as reported by the Consistory.

The new path also includes the construction of a 220-metre long, 4-metre wide, printed concrete pedestrian path, which will start at the access to the beach via Calle Dorada.

This section of the coastal corridor, which is being built by Urinci S.L., has an investment of 344,511 euros (VAT included) and is financed by the Tourism Sustainability Plan for Destinations – Next Generation Funds.

A route of almost 1,000 kilometres

The infrastructure is built with wood from “wild pines from Scandinavian forests” and under “sustainability criteria”, and has a “chemical treatment” for moisture that ensures its durability, even in “saline environments” as is the case of the coastal corridor of Estepona, according to Julio Vivas, technical director of the company Factoría Media Madera, located in Tabaz (Asturias), which has been commissioned to build the bridge.

Among its characteristics, the technical director highlighted that this bridge is “23 in length and three in useful width, 13 cubic metres of wood” and weighs 9 tonnes.

For its transfer, which took place last Monday, he indicated that a “120-tonne crane” was used, which has travelled “almost 1,000 kilometres” with this structure in its entirety from Asturias to Estepona, crossing the Vía de la Plata. The assembly began this Wednesday at 08:00, and was finally installed at 11:00 hours, as he pointed out.

The same company built the pedestrian bridge at the mouth of the Guadalhorce in Malaga in 2020, which has been installing wooden bridges in six different countries for more than 25 years.

The path is more than 90% completed.

With this new section, the coastal corridor project continues to progress after the recent completion of another path on the beach of El Cristo. The latter will allow an uninterrupted route to be followed along the more than 17 kilometres from Costa Natura to El Saladillo.

The Estepona coastal path is more than 90% complete, which means that there are more than 20 kilometres of coastline linked by these pedestrian sections. This sustainable urban development initiative that connects the coastline is of great value because it has preserved this space and has created a new attraction for the municipality.

The Consistory also recalled that in the last two years five new stretches have been built, such as the one in the Arroyo Vaquero area, the one connecting the Laguna Village shopping centre with Dominion Beach, with a length of 870 metres; a third of 145 metres located in Riviera Andaluza, another in front of the IKOS Andalucía hotel and the fifth connecting this hotel facility with the Park Beach urbanisation, which has a bridge of over 60 metres over the Guadalmansa River.
