JUST over a year ago Palma's brand new multi--million euro metro service was forced to close because the September rains caused serious flooding due to construction faults, however, after a year of repairs the metro is back on line and the network of leaks have been successfully plugged as no flooding was reported during the past month of torrential downpours.

The link between the centre of Palma and the University was finally brought back in action in the middle of July after 28 million euros was spent on repairing the leaks and another faults engineers spotted in the original construction which cost over 343 million euros.

The metro was supposed to have been the election-winning highlight of the former conservative Partido Popular's legislature but it failed to win over the electorate and was shut down weeks before it was due to have completed its trial period during which the public were able to travel for free.
