The Generalitat has modified the nomenclature of some stations and stops of the Valencia Metro network with the aim of simplifying them, improving their identification and adapting to urban changes in the Turia capital and its metropolitan area, as reported by the regional administration it's a statement.
Thus, it has indicated that the change in schedule signs, zonal, general and neighborhood plans, directional signs or line 'thermometers' has already begun progressively and coinciding with the start-up of the new line L10 of the Metro de Valencia (Alacant-Natzaret) «for reasons of efficiency». The Autonomous Administration has indicated that with the commissioning of the L10 "it is necessary to renew the signage of the entire network".
The proposed changes are the result of a study commissioned from the University of Valencia and advance "in the linguistic normalization of the nomenclatures of stations and stops", the Generalitat has highlighted. These modifications affect 23 facilities, specifically, nine metro, thirteen tram and one intermodal facility.
