Line 5 signalling
VALENCIA regional government in Spain has awarded Dimetronic a €2·8m contract to install signalling, control and telecommunications equipment on the 2·5 km section of metro Line 5 from Alameda to Parque Ayora. Due to open in the spring of 2003, the branch will have intermediate stations at Aragón and Manuel Candela.
Line 5 will eventually run from Parque Ayora to Manises airport, using the Alameda - Mislata-Almassil route currently operated as Line 3. Bids are to be invited next year for building the new Mislata - Manises section, which is expected to carry 5million passengers a year with trains operating every 10 to 12min.
