Since early November, the new set of Inca Llevant stops, replacing the current stop on Avenida Jaume I, have been in operation. The Antony’s stop is also now open to service the routes running towards Inca Station.
The new space also includes a public car park, enabling users to leave their vehicles and conveniently access the bus service to continue their journeys. The new station consists of two long bays, each equipped with two bus shelters. In addition to the parking area, spaces have also been made available in the new road constructed around the stop. This new space now provides 113 parking spaces, five of which are reserved for people with reduced mobility and two for taxis. There is also a space for parking motorbikes and bicycles.
The project does not interfere with the wayside cross, which has been kept in its original location. The work on the new infrastructure has been completed with urban furniture being installed and trees planted.
The improvements made to this infrastructure form part of the redevelopment work for the new TIB network which will come into operation in 2019. Another project in Inca is the underground car park, in Plaza Antoni Mateu, which facilitates intermodal, car-bus/train transport and opened in July.
The work on the new set of Inca Llevant stops and the underground car park forms part of the Project for sustainable mobility in the natural spaces and beaches of Mallorca funded by the revenue from the 2016 Plan for the Promotion of Sustainable Tourism. The amount allocated for each project was €321,400.00 (excluding VAT) and €43,834.52 (excluding VAT) respectively.
Furthermore, the work being undertaken in Inca to accommodate the new network in 2019 will be completed with the renovation of the current Inca bus station to convert it into the transport interchange hub for the region (train-car-bus). This will be the departure point for the local municipal routes, and the buses coming from the tourist resorts in the north of Mallorca will pass through here, especially in high season.
This work will help facilitate access to the Tramuntana Mountains by public transport from Inca.
