OVER the next six months, a cross-section of the population in Majorca will be involved in an extensive study of the island's daily travel habits as a definitive project for the future of the island's railway is drawn up. The final plan is to be presented to the local government at the start of next year and two of the main ideas are to build a railway link between Sa Pobla and Alcudia and installing some form of rail link, possibly a tram-shuttle service, between Palma and the airport. By the end of this year, the stretch of new line between Inca and Sa Pobla is due to be completed and the SFM Majorca railway Company is still studying the viability of operating a train between the centre of Palma and the university. If the government decides that the Sa Pobla link and the airport connection are viable projects, then the expansion of the railway could become one of the new government's biggest and most significant transport policies. Balearic Chief Minister, Francesc Antich, called a halt to the extention of the Inca motorway to Alcudia in preference of expanding the railway.
