Palma.—Transport minister Marc Pons yesterday announced that the government has started the procedure for extending the Palma Metro to Son Espases Hospital.
This will cost 31.6 million euros, be 2.11 kilometres and enable a 13-minute journey to the hospital from Plaça Espanya.
Pons said that some 30,000 passengers will use the new service daily.
In parallel to the start of the process for the Son Espases extension, the government has initiated one for the stretch of metro to the ParcBit technology park. This has a budget of seven million euros and will be 1.5 kilometres.
The project for this is currently being drawn up.
The minister added that it would be “prudent” not to set dates but nevertheless expected that the new lines (or the ParcBit one at least) will be operational in 2021.
Work is scheduled to start at the beginning of next year.
However, the project will depend very much on the outcome of the local electiopns in May. A new administration could shelve the plan.
