The city will only have two underground car parks

In the same area, the Bijaouane underground car park project, initially planned as part of the Agadir Urban Development Program (PDU) for the period 2020-2024, has been abandoned. Consequently, the underground car park parking plan, with a single underground level, has been revised.

Closed and fenced for several months following the launch of the work, the said car park will be converted into a surface park, that is to say on one level, in place of an underground car park. As a result, the city will have only two underground car parks, namely that of Al Inbiaat, backed by the future eponymous park, and that of rue de la Foire, the construction of which is in progress.

Tourist information center and administrative complex

Furthermore, work on the tourist information center and administrative complex on Agadir beach has already started, with the installation of a wooden roof and a panel system solar. As part of the component dedicated to urban development and the boost of the tourist zone of the city of Agadir – within the framework of the Urban Development Program (PDU) of the city for the period 2020-2024 -, the administrative complex has already been received.

As for the information center, it is at the finishing stage while awaiting the installation of street furniture. The Souss-Massa Regional Tourism Development Company (SDRT) launched work on this structure after the award of call for tenders no. 29/2022, on December 12, 2022, to a group of companies.

With an overall budget of around 12 million dirhams, the work underway near Place Bijaouane mainly focused on earthworks, major and secondary works, electrical installations and fluids. Before the start of the work, temporary modular constructions, for administrative use, were installed at the level of the cornice for the administrative staff of the beach (police, auxiliary forces and services of the Urban municipality).
