The Balearic government yesterday approved the investment of 1'269 million pesetas into improving Majorca's railway service - which brings the total amount of money spent on Majorca's railway this year to 3'525 million pesetas. The money is to be spent in a wide range of areas from the purchase of new rolling stock and the reformation of stations, including Palma station, to launching viability studies into plans to lay a railway track between Palma centre and the airport, extending the existing Palma to Inca line through Sa Pobla in the heart of the island and on to Alcudia in the north east and linking Palma with the University. What is more, all of the above new lines and extensions should be in operation next year. The investment is seen as a sign of the Balearic government's commitment to improving and supporting the public transport system. The most important project this year is the first phase of the railway line between Palma and Manacor. This year some 2'000 millions pesetas are to be invested in the project, the biggest sum ever spent on Majorca's railway.
