Adif Alta Velocidad has taken a new step towards the progress of the high-speed connection between Palencia and Santander, with the contracting of the construction of the 1.3 km long Palencia-Palencia Norte section for more than 29 million euros.

Specifically, Adif AV has awarded Lantania the execution works of the section's platform construction project for 26.9 million euros. In addition, it has awarded the consultancy and assistance for the control of these works to WSP Spain-Apia for 2.5 million euros.

The Palencia-Palencia Norte section corresponds to the northern exit of the Palencia station. It starts from a detour in the high-speed line linking Palencia and León, located at the northern end of the station, and runs parallel to the current conventional railway line until it connects with the two stretches already under construction, Palencia Norte-Amusco and Amusco-Osorno.

The design of the section includes the construction of a 457.1 m long viaduct to cross the conventional railway lines at the exit of the station.

Connecting Palencia and Cantabria to the high-speed rail network

The Palencia-Santander high-speed connection involves the construction of a new standard gauge line between the capital city of Palencia and Alar del Rey, along more than 78 km, which will be completed up to Reinosa. A total of 1.7 billion euros has been earmarked for its construction.

The construction of this line will improve Santander's communications with the centre of the country, reducing journey times and reinforcing the reliability and comfort of the infrastructure, while at the same time increasing traffic capacity by having a double track along most of its route.

Milestones of the high-speed connection

The high-speed connection between the centre of the country and Santander advances with this contract and the achievement of the following milestones:

  • Palencia-Palencia Norte (1.3 km): awarded, with a budget of 26.8 million and financed by MRR funds
  • Palencia Norte-Amusco (20.8 km): work started in October 2021 and represents an investment of 77.3 million. Its construction is financed by European funds, specifically MRR
  • Amusco-Osorno (21.9 km): work started in July 2021, with an investment of nearly €80 million and financing from MRR funds
  • Osorno-Calahorra de Boedo (20.7 km): under tender, with a budget of 106.6 million euros
  • Calahorra de Boedo-Alar del Rey (13.7 km): under tender, with a budget of 132.42 million euros.

These actions will contribute to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 9, which aims to develop reliable, sustainable and quality infrastructure to support economic development and human well-being.
