The AVE high speed train station in Vera has finally been announced. It will be built next to the A-1200 Garrucha – Vera road (or, at least next to where it will be once the road works to turn it into a dual carriageway are finished), roughly in front on the petrol station / Mercadona.
A new junction is to be built, on the Gnomo Feliz crossroads, giving access to the Playa, Mercadona, Valdesierra school and the AVE station.
The graphic department of La Voz, a hard working bunch of lads, released this highly accurate plan of the exact location:
There was a brief piece about how the Junta de Andalucia wanted the train station to go in the middle of the Llano Central, but Madrid felt that the plan was “too abstract” at the moment to warrant putting a major train station in the middle of a field up a dirt track. Finally, some sense.
