In the near future the station will be rebuilt in preparation for the new high-speed train line due to be completed by 2007. the current station will become a shopping centre. The current underground station for local trains will be part of the new Malaga underground system.
The underground train service is one of Malaga’s most exciting new projects and contracts are currently being awarded for its construction. The metro will initially have two lines: Line 1 will run from Teatinos to the Malagueta every 6 minutes and Line 2 will run from the Martín Carpena stadium to the Malagueta every 6 minutes. There will be a total of 21 stations, 16 of which will be underground. Work is expected to be finished by 2007. Further information is available from the Malaga website
Traffic congestion is chronic particularly at peak twins. Although the new Red Rapida system in the centre has helped to relieve the situation slightly. Parking is difficult, although there are now numerous underground car parks in the city.
