MURO COUNCIL SAYS STATION IS TOO FAR FROM TOWNTHE Majorcan Railway Company (SFM) is studying the possibility of introducing a new shuttle bus service to the beaches of Muro and which would also go to Alcudia and Pollensa. SFM manager José Antonio Santos explained that the new service would be introduced shortly. He added at the moment we are designing the line and studying whether or not passengers to or from the Playa de Muro would go to the Muro station or the station at Llubí. But deputy Mayor of Muro Onofre Plomer said yesterday that he was unaware of the proposal. He also criticised using Llubí station, as it is much further from the beach than the Muro station. He said it would be more logical for passengers to use the old Muro station or the Sa Pobla station. Plomer also said that the Muro town council had unsuccessfully petitioned the SFM to introduce a new bus service linking the town with the old train station. At the moment, Muro residents wanting to use the train have to walk or drive to the old station, which is being refurbished and which is on the outskirts of the town. They have not paid any attention to us and users reject the train because it is not convenient for them, Plomer said. Llubí residents have also complained about the distance of the station from the town, and similar complaints are expected from Petra, where the railway track is being rerouted outside the town.
The SFM has introduced shuttle services in some municipalities through which the train runs, to enable people living in outlying villages to use the service.
Santos also said that the SFM will soon be seeking offers from businesses wishing to offer their services at the Muro station which is now being refurbished.
He added that a decision would be taken after all the suggestions were received.
He did not define what uses the company was looking for.
It was originally suggested that it could be used for a restaurant-cafeteria or small shops.
It had been suggested that Muro and other stations could have small shops specialising in high quality local produce.
