The Alcudia town council will this week try to decide on the best route for a railway link with Sa Pobla. Mayor Antoni Alemany of the PSOE (Spanish Socialist Workers Party) has sent details of the routes proposed by the SFM, the Majorcan Railway Company, to the spokesmen of the political parties represented on the council. Once the council decides on a route, a more detailed study will be carried out to see if it is viable. At the moment, the most likely route is for the track to run along the S'Albufera road. The railway station would be situated in the abandoned Es Fogueró building, and from there would be linked to the port and Alcudia by tram. This route already has the support of the UM (Majorcan Union) which is opposed to a recent suggestion made by the public works ministry, under which the train would reach the roundabout dominated by the Aligi Sassu statue of a horse, parallel to the Alcudia road, bordering the Puig de Sant Marti and the Maristany wetlands. A spokesman for the UM said that they would oppose any atempt to have the train run close to Sant Marti and Maristany. He said that this area had already been affected when the road was built. Having the station at Es Fogueró would bring the railway closer to the proposed new industrial estate. Mayor Alemany is also in favour of the Es Fogueró route.
