Rio SecoWork has started on three flood-proof crossings on the Rio Seco in Nerja. The €92,000 project should provide more permanent crossing points on the river, which are used by farmers and property owners in this part of the countryside.

The Rio Seco means Dry River in English, but despite its name, the water often flows strongly in the winter months, which can wash away the roads which cross it, reducing access to the area.

The new crossings will be located at three points on the river – one just to the north of the motorway, in the area known as Cortijo Victoria; one close to the service road for the motorway and the third near to the Camino de Enmedio. The work is expected to take three months to complete.

The Rio Seco river runs down the valley at the western end of Nerja, emerging on El Playazo next to the Marinas de Nerja hotel.
