Plans have been implemented by Marbella town council to install three enormous vertical gardens at well- known industrial thoroughfares early this year. The project will see a trio of urban public structures turn into gorgeous green landmarks where plants replace advertising hoardings and flowers cover concrete.
The essential aim of the initiative is to improve the aesthetics of each location, all of which experience a large amount of vehicle and foot traffic each day.
The three prominent locales up for transformation are: a bridge next to the Puente Romano Hotel that runs over the Golden Mile, the elevated walkway across the Avenida Cánovas del Castillo near the centre of Marbella, and the entryways of the road tunnel near the old town, under the Avenida del Mar.
Tenders are out and a budget of 150,000 euros has been allocated to the floral regeneration work, while the townhall plans have the vertical gardens scheduled for installation by next spring. Each display will be watered by an eco-friendly system that recycles unused irrigation water and it is expected to take approximately two months to complete the perpendicular gardens.
Next year the colourful resort town of Marbella will see many beneficial social and urban planning programmes undertaken thanks to an increased municipal budget of 283 million euros. The additional money available is the result of several factors including the arrival of European EDUSI funds and the significant increase in economic activity in the region.
Alongside an allocation for public works, there are finances set aside for neighbourhood investments, district conservation and the reconstruction of certain roads that include Calle Salduba, Calle Virgen del Pilar and Calle Nuestra Señora de Gracia.
All of this, together with beautiful bridges and tunnels that take flower in spring, will surely guarantee that Marbella becomes an even more delightful, vibrant and interesting town than it already is.
