BAHIA DE CADIZ | Public Transport



This city in Spain seems to have ocean all around it. How is this city supposed to grow? Well.. now a new train-tram project is giving the city a tram-train service. This is very interesting in the way that why cant other small cities do that too? The city also have 2 underground stations "wow"

If someone have pics of this system, please post them.

The Tram-train part of the project is already in service, and the two underground stations opened about 10 years ago. However, at present only suburban and long distance trains use this line. The tram line is supposed to open in 2012, although recently the justice has stopped the works due to a lack of project in one of the sections of the line, so maybe there will be a delay.

In other words, a court has paralysed the works because the project of the line wasn't correctly approved by the Andalusian government and there were also mistakes with the expropriations. Here you have a link to the thread in the Spanish forum, where you'll find more information, but in Spanish.

Following delivery by road from the CAF Santana plant in Linares, the three-section LRV is now being reassembled with a view to commencing dynamic testing between Chiclana and San Fernando in September.

Tests will start in September. Expected opening in Spring 2017 (five years later than originally planned ).

If I am well informed, only the section between Gómez Pablo and La Hoya would be opening.

As far as I know, there is no budget by Adif for an interchange station at La Ardila yet.

Wasn't there a second line that was supposed to hook into the Jerez tramway?

There are proposals to create a second line between Cádiz and Puerto Real using the second bay bridge, which opened last year. Actually the bridge was designed with reserved space for public transport (currently buses), that can be used for trams in the future.

However, there are no plans to create a tram network in Jerez. There were some proposals before the economic crisis started, but they were abandoned long time ago, there's no money.
