A coastal railway line extension project linking Fuengirola to Algeciras has been proposed by the Junta de Andalucía
Next Generation funding could be used to extend the coastal railway from Fuengirola in Malaga to Algeciras in the province of Cádiz if a proposal from the Junta de Andalucía is approved.
Malaga and the municipalities at the eastern end of the region would be connected by expanding the Costa del Sol beach railway line, according to the Junta de Andalucía. With the help of this project, the train line that now terminates in Fuengirola would eventually travel past Marbella, Estepona, and on to Algeciras.
The Spanish Government requested a number of recommendations from the autonomous communities that would fit with the Recovery, Transformation, and Resilience Plan, and those proposals led to the creation of this plan (PRTR). The Ministry of Economy responded by sending 241 initiatives that may be implemented in Andalucia.
The proposal does not only apply to the Cercanias network but also raises the possibility of adapting the line to high speed. This would greatly enhance the connection between the city of Marbella and Malaga Airport. This would create a real boost for tourism and logistics in the region.
The proposed Fuengirola to Algeciras coastal railway line is a railway line in Spain that runs along the Mediterranean coast from Fuengirola, a town in the province of Málaga, to Algeciras, a port city in the province of Cádiz. The line is operated by Renfe, the national railway company of Spain, and serves as a transportation corridor for both passengers and freight.
The railway line is approximately 150 kilometers long and runs through a number of cities and towns along the coast, including Marbella, Estepona, and Sotogrande. It offers a convenient and affordable way to travel along the Mediterranean coast, with regular train services running throughout the day.
There are a number of stops along the way, including in major cities and towns as well as smaller villages. It is a popular transportation option for both tourists and locals, offering a comfortable and convenient way to travel and explore the region.
