COUNTDOWN FOR THE LAUNCHING OF THE NEW ITV (MOT) STATION AT THE SON BUGADELLES INDUSTRIAL ESTATE
The president of the Consell de Mallorca, Llorenç Galmés, accompanied by the regional minister for Territory, Mobility and Infrastructures, Fernando Rubio, and the insular director for Infrastructures and Mobility, Rafel Gelabert, has visited the works of the future fifth ITV (MOT - Technical Inspection of Vehicles) station in Calvià – Son Bugadelles industrial estate. He has been welcomed by the mayor of the municipality, Juan Antonio Amengual and part of the Government team.
The two ITVs in Palma, the one in Manacor, the one in Inca and the provisional one in Calvià will start operating on Saturday 23rd September. Likewise, they will be operational on Saturday 30th September and on 7th and 21st October. With these four days, it will be possible to increase another 2.400 appointments and reduce the waiting list, which is currently around 30-35 days.
The works on the new Calvià station, that president Galmés visited today, are on their final stage. The construction cost is 1.9 million euros. It is expected to open next year, once all the approval, works completion and licensing procedures have been completed and the necessary personnel and machinery can be provided. It will have a capacity for 8.000 weekly inspections, double than those in the current mobile station. It will have four inspection lines, two of them for heavy vehicles and one line for motorcycles. It has been built on a municipal land plot where Calvià Town Hall, through an administrative concession, transfers its use to the Consell for the ITV's operation. The duration of the administrative concession will be 35 years, extendable to 50 years.
