After an investment of more than 4.4 million Euros, the station of the conventional line of Malaga-Fuengirola is now operational. The Ministry for Development has undertaken a comprehensive refurbishment of the infrastructure located in the downtown, along the river Guadalmedina.
With the coming into operation of the new facilities has been completed the refurbishment of the stations of Malaga, which have involved the expansion of the urban tunnel in the city and the regeneration of the platforms and equipment for the suburban underground station María Zambrano.
With the completion of works at the station of Malaga-Centre-Alameda, enters in service in its entirety the railway tunnel of the city. In all, Public Works has conducted an investment of close to 145 million Euros in the integration of the train in the city.
These actions will permit an increase in the number of the local train services of the lines C1 and C2. Travel time will be reduced and the user comfort increased by adopting new technologies in the rail facilities and stations and as well by increasing accessibility to the train.
Upon entering the service of the station Malaga-Centre-Alameda, schedules have been adapted to better suit the needs of users, setting the departures every hour on the hour and 30 minutes, both from Fuengirola and Malaga city centre. The first train from Málaga-Centre-Alameda leaves at 5:30 AM and the last at 22.30 PM, in the reverse sense in Fuengirola it starts at 6:30 AM and ends at 23:30 PM. Travel time is 48 minutes. The C-1 thus regains its usual route, which had been altered in April 2008.
