Adif and Adif Alta Velocidad have contracted, for a total of EUR 163 million, rail supplies that will boost the construction and renovation of railway lines that develop throughout the network, including the Mediterranean Corridor and the various plans of Cercanías.

These are six supply contracts, which will involve the supply of some 81,200 tons of rail, profiled bars of iron and rolled steel mounted parallel on the railway lines to support and guide the trains.

These supplies awarded to ArcelorMittal will be used to implement the standard gauge in several sections of the Mediterranean Corridor, in actions of the Cercanías de València, Santander, Asturias and Transformem Rodalies plans, and to renew several conventional railroad lines. Also, in the assembly of tracks for the new La Sagrera station in Barcelona and the Mérida bypass of the high-speed railway to Extremadura.

In this way, Adif guarantees the progress of the different actions underway for the development of the high-speed network, as well as for the renovation and modernization of the conventional and metric gauge network.

Mediterranean Corridor and Cercanías

Specifically, part of this rail supply will be used to advance in the installation of standard gauge on sections of the Mediterranean Corridor as it passes through Valencia (Sagunto-Castellón and Castellón-Vinaroz) and Catalonia (Vandellós-Cambiador de la Boella and Castellbisbal-Martorell- Vila-Seca).

Also to promote actions in different commuter rail hubs, such as access to El Prat airport or the burying of the R-2 as it passes through Montcada i Reixac, included in Transformem Rodalies; the duplication of the Astillero-Orejo section of the Santander Commuter Rail, the renovation of the Colloto-Infiesto section of the Asturias Commuter Rail Plan, or the Pobla Llarga-Silla and Silla-Cullera sections of the Valencia Commuter Rail Plan.

Another part of this rail supply will guarantee the progress in the construction of the new La Sagrera station in Barcelona, as well as the Mérida bypass of the high-speed line to Extremadura, in both cases, to undertake their respective track assemblies, recently contracted.

Boost to the renewal of conventional lines

The rail supplies will also boost the renewal of track being carried out on conventional railroad lines such as the Zafra-Huelva, the Huesca-Canfranc, the Ciudad Real-Badajoz or the Arahal-Marchena (Seville).

All these actions contribute to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number 9 achievement, which promotes sustainable, reliable, and quality infrastructures.
