The regional government has announced two projects to vastly improve deficient public transport in Alicante province.
Studies will be drawn up for a rail link between Orihuela-Torrevieja and Alicante-Elche airport – and another from Denia to Gandia.
Orihuela mayoress Carolina Gracia said it was ‘extraordinary news’ for the Vega Baja area.
Regional president Ximo Puig had made the announcement in the regional parliament on Tuesday.
He said their intention is to connect Orihuela city and Torrevieja with a tram service, and run another line from Torrevieja to the airport.
