The A-7 underpass could open on the same day as the inauguration of the airport’s second runway
After five years of delays and inconvenience the long-awaited San Pedro tunnel looks set to be open to traffic before the first avalanche of tourists hits the Costa del Sol this summer. Government sources maintain that the underpass will be in use by the beginning of July, as the Minister Ana Pastor predicted on her first visit to the works. The date has not been confirmed but it is possible that the tunnel opening could take place on June 26th when the Minister will be in Malaga for the official inauguration of the second runway at the airport. This will allow as many as 72 flights to arrive or depart from the Costa del Sol every hour.
