THE Andalucia regional administration is urging the new national government not to delay the Almeria AVE high-speed rail connection further.
Junta de Andalucia Public Works regional minister Marifran Carazo revealed during a visit to Almeria city this week that a letter has been set to the newly appointed Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda Minister Jose Luis Abalos requesting a meeting as soon as possible.
Carazo said she wants to directly convey her concerns about the arrival of the high-speed rail link to the provincial capital, but also about the future of the conventional Almeria-Granada-Seville line.
Speaking following the signing of an agreement to make Almeria city part of the Metropolitan Transport Consortium, the regional minister also revealed that the works contract for the final section of the Almanzora highway is due to be put out to tender in the first three months of this year.
