Taxi-drivers, unhappy with the return of the tourist train in Puerto Alcúdia, yesterday delivered a petition with over 1,300 signatures to Alcúdia town hall. The drivers believe the train represents unfair competition and they say that they have experienced a considerable loss of business since its introduction. Legal action may be taken, but the town hall argues that no opposition was lodged against the train when its operation was put out to public consultation. The town hall does accept that publicity for the train, which suggests there is a stop for the old town market, will have to be changed; the stop isn't for the market but is the nearest one to the old town.
