Velez Malaga trams could be heading Down Under

THREE vehicles from the defunct Velez Malaga tram could be transported 25,000km to be used in Australia.

The service, which cost €40 million to create, was axed in June this year after just six years in operation because it was not economically viable.

Now the town hall is investigating ways of clawing back the €2.5 million of debt it accumulated because of the project.

“The tram has stopped now but if there is a possibility of it functioning elsewhere, we have to look into it,” said Velez mayor Francisco Bonilla.
