THE main railway line in Palma was yesterday linked up with the new metro link which is being built at the moment with the demolition of the wall separating the two. This is part of the underground and improvement work being done on the railways by the Balearic Government.
The leader of the Balearic Government, Jaume Matas, was present at the demolition of the wall, accompanied by the Balearic Minister of Public Works, Mabel Cabrer, and the Mayor of Palma, Catalina Cirer. They walked through the tunnel from the site of the future Jacinto Verdaguer station to where the Son Oliva station will be built, where the demolition of the wall took place. In a declaration to the press, Cabrer said that trains will be running through the tunnel from September, but the underground works, which include the refurbishment of the Calle Jacinto Verdaguer, will not be finished until February 2007.
