Visitors will soon have to park just inland of the motorway bridge and get a shuttle down to the coast. The Mogán local authority plans a 400 car parking area just north of the motorway bridge to accommodate all the cars.
The bold plan is a response to the increased traffic and visitor numbers since the new motorway opened in 2013.
The medium-term plan was announced by Mogán mayor Onalia Bueno during the opening of the new 5-Star Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Gran Canaria, Mogan. She stated that the local authorities are well aware that visitor pressure on Mogán is a problem and that they see its future are car-free.
The only people who will still be allowed to drive into town will be residents and workers.
Alex Says: We can't wait for this to happen as Puerto de Mogán would be so much nicer if all its streets were quiet and lined with cafes rather than parked cars.
