The rail union strike called for this Friday, 24 September, will see the cancellation of almost 30 train services in Malaga province.
In the event of a strike, Spain’s Ministry of Transport decrees that a minimum service level must be maintained to guarantee the mobility of the public.
Some 78 per cent of the high-speed AVE and long distance trains must operate and 60 per cent of the medium distance services.
On the local, Cercanías, routes the minimum service decree guarantees the circulation of 100 per cent of trains at rush hour (from 6am to 9am, from 1.30 /2pm to 3.30/4pm and from 6.30pm to 8.30pm) and 75 per cent the rest of the day.
The SFF-CGT union strike is called on Friday, 24 September throughout Malaga province from 00.00am to 11pm. The trains that will not circulate because they are not included on the minimum services plan are:
AVE Madrid-Málaga: The departures from Malaga at 12pm and 7pm and from Madrid at 11.35am and 6.30pm.
Avant Sevilla-Málaga: Departures from Seville at 8am and 12.50pm
Medium Distance Malaga-Seville: Departure from Malaga at 5.19pm and from Seville at 6.48pm
Cercanías: Line C-1 Málaga-Fuengirola: 17 trains cancelled throughout the day, of the 104 that provide service on the line
Line C-2 Málaga-Álora: Four trains cancelled throughout the day, of the 28 that cover the service.
