Sacyr puts two new interchanges into operation to improve AP-46 connections

  • The concessionaire, Guadalcesa (Málaga-Las Pedrizas), has invested 24 million euros in improving highway access, which will reduce travel times for users.

Sacyr has put two new interchanges into operation, between the MA-20 and A-7 highways, which improve connections with the AP-46 Malaga-Las Pedrizas highway. The new interchanges will reduce travel times between Malaga, its metropolitan area, the Costa del Sol, and the Guadalhorce Valley.

The concessionaire, Guadalcesa (owned by Aberdeen Infrastructure, Mirova, and Sacyr Concesiones), working in conjunction with Spain’s Ministry of Development, has promoted the construction of these new infrastructures with an investment of 24 million euros.

The interchange between the MA-20 and the AP-46 has involved building two new slip roads between the MA-20 and the A-7, building an overpass over the MA-20, two 128 m elevated roads, for each of the 2 slip roads running parallel to the existing elevated highway, and the construction of 8 new toll booths to make a total of 26, thereby improving user service.

This construction project involves providing a direct connection from the MA-20 ring road to the Malaga ‘Hiperronda’ ring road (A-7), which will cut travel times between Malaga and the AP-46 highway. It will also help to significantly reduce congestion on the MA-20 by improving mobility in the surrounding area.

The AP-46 / MA-3404 interchange will reduce travel times in the direction of Malaga and its metropolitan area, the Costa del Sol, and the Guadalhorce Valley towards the towns of Casabermeja and Villanueva de la Concepcion. This branch will also facilitate the reorganisation of slip roads onto the operational area, so as to improve user service, and facilitate operation and maintenance work.
