The CTB is to launch a tender for the purchase of a catenary maintenance unit and for improvements to the doors of 24 Metro units.
The General Council of the CTB has approved a tender for the supply of a new track car for catenary maintenance at a cost of €1,270,000 and for the adaptation of passenger doors on 24 Metro units, for the amount of €1,520,000
Today CTB has reopened the Metro station in Urduliz with a new track layout that does away once and for all with the last remaining level crossing on the Metro network. With this change the residents of Urduliz have gained 6000 m2 of public space. Track layouts in Sopela and Plentzia are also being upgraded as a result of this work. The replacement shuttle bus service that has been running between Plentzia and Sopela over the 24 months of the work has ceased to run today.
