ANTEQUERA will have a stop on the high-speed Malaga to Sevilla AVE line set to be completed in 2013.
“Antequera will soon be just 45 minutes from Sevilla,” explained PSOE spokesman in Malaga Miguel Angel Heredia.
“This development will open enormous business for all three major cities on the line.”
Some one billion euros will be ploughed into Andalucia’s AVE infrastructure network which is predicted to generate 30,000 jobs during the construction stages.
Meanwhile, Antequera is gearing up for celebrating six centuries since its inauguration into the crown of Castilla.
Almost 600 years ago on September 16, the Moors relinquished their control of the city, also called El Torcal, by Spaniards.
A number of events are being organised to help commemorate the event, including the hosting of the Copa del Rey handball tournament.
