The Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) forwards a motion asking that the coastal train be extended to include stations in Mijas.

PSOE in Mijas indicated this month that the coastal train route that currently runs from Malaga to Fuengirola, via Benalmádena, Torremolinos and Malaga Airport, should be extended further along the Costa del Sol. They went on to say that the infrastructure “must respond to the needs of a municipality with more than 84,000 inhabitants”. During the plenary session of April, the Municipal Socialist Group presented a motion asking the central government to consider stops in Las Lagunas, La Cala, Calahonda and Riviera.

Socialists are critical of this year’s state budgets where they say only 6 million euros have been allocated for a project that would provide a rail connection to a significant part of the Costa del Sol. “It is therefore an insufficient budget since the estimated cost of the project is over 2,000 million euros “, argued the Secretary General of the Socialists, José Antonio González.

PSOE is urging the government to proceed with an extension of the coastal train route and to ensure sufficient funding and realistic deadlines. The Socialists hope to have the support of other political parties to fight for a train service that responds to the needs of local residents and offers a real  infrastructure improvement along the Costa del Sol.

“The quality of life of our residents is at the forefront, so we will continue working until investment arrives in Mijas to finally improve the infrastructure and roads”, concluded the secretary of the socialists in the town, José Antonio González.
