THE train line connecting Ronda and Malaga will not be restored until Spring 2019, according to the president of Adif, Isabel Pardo.
Adif announced this week that the complexity of the required repairs will delay works on the section destroyed by the disastrous storm on October 21, which decimated the areas of Bobadilla, Campillos and Almargen.
Adif report the heavy rains caused considerable damage to the embankment in Campillos that left the railway line unpassable.
The solution is more complex than expected, with Adif planning to construct a bridge to resolve future flood risks to the train line.
Pardo has promised an 85-metre structure and used the word ‘months’ when quizzed as to when the train line will be restored.
