THE new president of the Bajo Andarax Association of Municipalities plans to work on getting a local train service for the area.
The idea was first suggested in 2007 by the Friends of the Railway Association and since then, several institutions have planned to make it a reality. Now, Eugenio Gonzalvez, has said that he will make it a priority and begin working on a train to connect Almeria city with Huercal de Almeria, Benahadux, Gador and Santa Fe de Mondujar in September.
The first action he plans to take is to gather all the political representatives of the Bajo Andarax area at the station in Huercal de Almeria to all request the short-distance train be brought to the area.
He says it would not be very expensive because the infrastructures are already in place, and it would promote the area which could be visited by more people staying in Almeria, as well as benefitting students and workers who need to reach the city.
