Denia train station rebuild finished but line still not operational

REFORMATIONS: Station finished but still a wait for the trains to arrive

THE rebuilding and reformations at Dénia train station have now finished. A total of €2m has been spent on the project to remodel the station building, concourse and the platforms.

The final 400 metres of the track has been walked by regional and local politicians – María José Salvador and Vicent Grimalt – to formally recognise the conclusion of the work, although it won’t be until well into 2019 that Line 9 running from Benidorm will be fully operational.

Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat Valenciana (FGV) suspended the trains between Calpe and Dénia back in July, 2016 and have since operated a bus service along that route. In addition to the work undertaken in Dénia, the stations that serve Teulada, Gata, Alfazdel Pi and Benidorm have also been reformed, at a cost of €6.4m.

The new platforms have been adapted to accommodate the new dual diesel-electric TRAM wagons which resulted in the jacaranda plants being removed and replaced with smaller trees.

The station suffered from leaks in the roof which have now been repaired and waterproofed, and the facades have also benefitted from a thorough clean.
