Majorca´s railway service is definitely getting there...

By the start of the year 2003, the Inca to Manacor railway will hopefully be in operation, according to the manager of the Majorcan railway service (SFM), José Antonio Santos Hierro. The Balearic Government announced yesterday that 4'000 million pesetas is to be invested in the service, which in effect will offer a new lifeline to the Manacor area of the island. The Balearic Minister for Public Works, Josep Antoni Ferrer, said yesterday that work on the Inca to Manacor link will start around the middle of next year and could be completed by the start of 2003. Last week the grounds of the project and operations contract were approved by the SFM administration. While work on the new link gets underway, SFM also announced yesterday that 2'000 million pesetas will be invested on the renovation of the stations at Manacor, Sineu and Petra; work will also be completed on the station at Inca, which will become the hub of the expanding Majorca rail network.
