Plans for Mojacar’s new promenade extension have met with stiff opposition from a number of beach bar owners and one of the main opposition parties.
The scheme for a 2.7-kilometre extension to the promenade, stretching from the Red Cross roundabout to the Maui beach bar, is now subject to a month-long public consultation period.
The new ‘third phase’ will take two years to build at a cost of three million euros and comes after an 880-metre stretch of promenade was inaugurated in June.
The project, which will include three car parks for 145 vehicles and a cycle lane, could become the most controversial yet, though, as sections of the resort’s famous ‘chiringuito’ beach bars will disappear.
