DV 1/27/2009 The bidegorri Amara-Ibaeta for the ancient Morlans tunnel will open in Holy Week

DV. The bidegorri for the ancient railroad Morlans tunnel will be one
reality in little more than two months. The new and singular cycle tracing
it will bring over will Love and Ibaeta by means of a practically flat trip.
adviser of Transports, Nuria López of Guereñu, and the mayor, Odón
Elorza,
they turned yesterday a visit to the tunnel to analyze the march of a few works
that began last June and that will cost 2 millions of
euros.
The tunnel of the ancient railroad line Bilbao - San Sebastian has 840
meters of length - from Morlans (under the viaduct Amara-Ibaeta) up to

low part of Bera Bera (along with the Lugaritz halt) - 3,5 meters of
width and approximately 5 meters high. From the Errondo walk it will be planned
up to
the mouth of the tunnel a 400 meters provisional route while it is constructed

new Morlans quarter. To the exit of the tunnel, the rail bike will cover
430
opencast meters up to the current station of the Mole of Lugaritz, and
another 290 meters up to reaching the bidegorri of the avenue of Toulouse.
The works inside the old tunnel have constructed the platform
on that the asphalt of the bidegorri will settle and they have waterproofed

vault by means of the laying of a geo-textile «material», a species of
plastic canvas which principal function, in addition to the esthetics, is to canalize
the moisture towards the side water evacuation trenches. This one
plate
it is of a light gray color to win in luminosity. Along everything

tunnel there will be placed in the next weeks a few salvers that they will carry
lighting, the systems of public address system, the closed circuit of
videovigilancia and the devices of detection of fires. Also,
every
50 meters there will be intercoms so that those who go along along the bidegorri
be able to communicate any type of incidence.
The bidegorri will be two meters wide and a verge to every side of approximately 65
centimeters. At present there are constructed the automatic doors that

they will place in every mouth of the tunnel and that they will be driven at the dawn and
to get dark for the Municipal Guard - it still has not become clear which will be
concrete schedule of opening and closing - to prevent an undue use for

in the night. The Town hall made clear some time ago that, for safety and
width,
the new alley will be able only to be used by cyclists, not for
pedestrians.
López de Guereñu and Elorza announced prudently that the bidegorri
it will open «in spring», but sources of the contract indicated that in
Week
Saint one will be able already to pedal. The adviser emphasized the advance that he will suppose
for
the «sustainable mobility» the new tracing and he trusted in the extension of
binomial tren+bici, for what more loan points will be necessary of
bicycles at the stations of the Mole and the fitting out of new cars
with aptitude to transport the cycles without bothering to the passengers.
