ALMERIA’s Railway Defence association questioned claims that work on the Almeria-Murcia AVE high speed train was on schedule.

Members visiting the section nearest the capital saw neither workmen nor machinery, they said recently.

Nothing suggested that work had started on the complex section requiring a 900-metre tunnel and a 1,400 viaduct between Nijar and the River Andrax, they added.


The association has now asked to meet the president of Spain’s track operator, Adif, members told the Spanish media: “Let’s see what she has to say.”

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
