It should be remembered that the last section inaugurated in early summer was the one corresponding to the lane that runs along the Paseo Marítimo de Almerimar, whose works have also entailed the rehabilitation of the walk itself with the cobblestone and the new entrances from the same to the beach .

Góngora, in addition, has taken to transfer to the delegate "the need to undertake a performance in the roundabout entrance of the nucleus of Las Norias since in that area arrives the drainage of the entire Rambla del Águila which causes occasional floods in times of rain . Hence the convenience of carrying out a major drainage at this point to give solution to that problem ".
