THE Junta’s Public Works department has put out to tender a €650,000 contract to build Mojacar’s new intermodal bus station.

More than 40 interurban buses and coaches stop in Mojacar each day, increasing each summer when Mojacar’s population multiplies by four, said Eloisa Cabrera, the regional government’s territorial delegate, as she emphasised the need for the new transport hub.

After signing the agreement with Mojacar town hall last December, the Public Works department was taking the project further progress by inviting bids for the contract, Cabrera said.

The new building on a 5,607-square metre plot on Avenida de Andalucia, would be completed by the end of this year, the delegate added.

“The hub will provide an adequate public transport service that guarantees the safety of passengers entering or leaving the vehicles and offers shelter in extreme weather conditions,” she said.

The bus station, with a waiting room and public lavatories, will be big enough for four buses to park at the same time and include a taxi rank as well as stops for Mojacar’s own urban buses.
