Benidorm City council has started the works for a new Benidorm Tram stop which will be at the side of Benidorm bus station. This new stop of TRAM has already begun with the construction of a footbridge that links the Els Tolls neighbourhood with the Salto del Agua school zone and the sports area. In fact, this pedestrian crossing runs parallel to the TRAM tracks and will now connect with this new stop. The length of the platform will be of 75 meters along with bike lanes and garden areas
But the project not only contemplates the construction of that stopping place but also the electrification of the section included between the station of the old town of Benidorm and this new one by the bus station. The Alicante-Benidorm-Denia railway line currently operates by means of electric mobile material between the stations of Luceros and Benidorm, then circulating, after transferring, between Benidorm and Denia with diesel units. Now, with electrification, those electric trains will reach the new halt.
The work is due to be finished by the end of this year 2018
