In line with other Costa del Sol towns, Marbella has decided to stop paying for lighting along the A-7, claiming that national highways should be paid for by the central government. From December 1st, only bills for the electricity needed for the stretch between Puerto Banús and Guadalmina are still being met by the corporation, the explanation being that this road runs through a town, San Pedro, and also that it would be dangerous to leave it unlit in view of the roadworks taking place.
The tunnel on the AP-7 where the toll road and the Puerto Banús road diverge also still has lights, as the company holding the toll road concession has agreed to put the bills in its name.
With this, the Town Hall will save a total of 350,000 euros a year.

Its very wrong they should all do this, as it was said on another thread it's a false saving as there are bound to be many accidents. I know people from Mijas and East Marbella who are going into work in the pitch black - no fun on the La Cala and Rio Real bends. I know one girl who works in Iceland at Banus, she is absolutely terrified with the situation.

Team GB, i totally agree, i have nearly had a few accidents already as i live in the area of Mijas Costa and it is real bad,  the number of accidents will be higher and what is worse is they are going to be real bad accidents as lack of visibility is a nightmare.

I am not surprised so many people are going home.

Joan
