Phase Two of Vélez-Málaga Tranvia system still not operational

The second phase of the highly unsuccessful Tranvia tram system in Vélez-Málaga will definitely not be in operation by Easter, despite having been completed in March 2009.

The delay is due to the debt owed by Vélez-Málaga Council to the sompany operating the tram system, Tranvías Vélez (Travelsa), a debt which now stands at €1,500,000.

The second phase of the Tranvia covers a 1.2 km section with three stops and cost €8.1 million to build. The Council has been asking Travelsa to open this section of the line but the requests have fallen on deaf ears due to the continuing debt situation.
