THE design for phase one of the 320 million euro Palma to Arenal tram will go on display for public consideration in January.
The first phase of the ambitious Bay of Palma tram project will involve a link from Palma's grand central station in the Plaza d'España to Can Pastilla where a link will branch off to Son San Juan Airport.

Apparently, Spanish airport authority AENA has agreed to the public transport service and the airport tram station is expected to be located to the far right of the arrivals coach and car park area outside the terminal.

Phase one of the project will see the tram running down the Avenidas to El Molinar and along the sea front to Can Pastilla via Coll den Rebassa and the Balearic government is confident that the building permission will be granted for the project towards the end of next year so that construction work can get underway early 2010.

Phase two of the project is the link from Can Pastilla to Arenal and rumours have already started circulating about a third phase to run a second main tram link in the opposite direction to Calvia.
