New green bus lane opens for Malaga Tech Park commuters to help ease Spain’s rush hour gridlock

A NEW €2 million bus lane was opened today for commuters travelling from Malaga and the metropolitan area to the Malaga TechPark in a bid to alleviate rush hour congestion.

The BUS-VAO lane (VAO which means passenger vehicles) will be reserved for buses and cars carrying multiple people  – single occupant cars will be forbidden from using the lane.

The dedicated lane runs along the A-7056 between the A-357 and A-7054 motorways towards the entrance of Malaga TechPark (formerly Andalucia Technology Park).

The new lane will be located on the right lane of the Campillos exit of the A-357 road at link number 61 and on the right lane of the A-7056 road towards the tech park. 

Initially the lane will be active on weekdays from 6:30am to 9:30am.
