NThe president of the Consell de Mallorca announces the opening of all the stations of the Technical Inspection of Vehicles (ITV) on Saturdays in September and October and 2,400 more appointments will be available. Waiting lists reach 35 days
Consell de Mallorca will open the stations of the technical inspection of vehicles (ITV) throughout the island four Saturdays in September and October, with the aim of reducing waiting lists. This has been announced by the president of the insular institution, Llorenç Galmés, during the visit to the new station that is being built in the industrial area of Son Bugadelles in Calvià.
New ITV schedules in Mallorca
Specifically, the two ITV in Palma, the one in Manacor, the one in Inca and the mobile one in Calvià will open their doors from next Saturday, September 23rd. Likewise, they will be operative on Saturday September 30 and October 7 and 21.
With these four days it will be possible to increase another 2,400 appointments and reduce the waiting list, which at the moment is around 30-35 days. It has not been possible to provide more Saturdays due to the lack of availability of the concessionaire’s staff. This is explained in a press release from the insular institution.
In this sense, the Consell has announced that it plans to open two new lines of motorcycles, one in Calvià and the other in Palma II station. These vehicles are the ones that have more difficulties to pass the inspections due to the increase of the same in the last years.
New ITV station in Calvià
The works of the new Calvià station are in the final stretch. The cost of the construction is 1.9 million Euros. New station is expected to open its doors next year, once all the homologation, end of works and licenses procedures have been passed and the necessary personnel and machinery can be provided.
It will have a capacity for 8,000 weekly inspections, double that of the current mobile station. It will have four inspection lines, two of them for heavy vehicles and one for motorcycles.
