The 1.7-kilometre urban section will start from the current station and will run along the Manacor Railroad promenade until it reaches the new Manacor stop. The works, which have an execution budget of 29.2 million euros, involve a reconversion of this avenue to increase the spaces for pedestrians and public transport.
The initial project includes several of the improvements proposed by the City Council, such as the opening of an alternative road to divert the road traffic that currently circulates along the Paseo del Ferrocarril, a new park and ride associated with the Manacor-Este station, and other actions aimed at facilitate the use of the train.
The Government of the Balearic Islands and the Manacor City Council have announced that the next step will be the signing of a collaboration agreement for the execution of this urban section. In addition, a monitoring commission will be created to ensure compliance with the agreements provided for in the agreement. With this agreement, the basic project will be definitively approved, to proceed to draft the final construction design, tender the works and start the work in 2023, with the aim of reaching Son Carrió by 2025.
The reactivation of the Manacor-Artà corridor is part of the Mobility Master Plan approved in 2019. This infrastructure will restore the historical connection between the towns of the region, and will link up with the coastal areas. The Balearic Executive has allocated 30 million euros this year to promote the construction of the Llevant train. This financing will be completed with new items up to the necessary 120 million euros, with the aim that the entire project will be completed by 2027.
