ZP orders Almeria AVE put back by one year

And so it takes place.
ZP’s massive cutting of public expenditure will affect the Almería AVE line, Minister of Development José Blanco announced last night.
6,400 million euros of public spending on public works is being slashed. The Ministry will be announcing in a few days which contracts, even ones already signed, will not be honoured.
As funds initially earmarked for the project will be reduced, the completion date for the line will be put back by one year. So instead of taking the train from Vera to Murcia in 2016, it’ll be 2017………..???
No news yet on whether this also affects the Almanzora motorway, on which works have stopped “pending a technical review after terrain issues” according to the Ministry of Public Works (they promised that work will restart in two months).
Also, Granada townhall claims that the cutting of public funds has sent it into bankruptcy, saying that 75% of the funds it was expecting have “vanished”. (El Ideal).
