Adif recently carried out reliability tests on a new 45 km section in the province of Valencia. The railway will be part of a planned high-speed link between Alicante and Valencia, as well as a key link in the Mediterranean Corridor to France and on to Central Europe. Railway Supply magazine writes about this with reference to RailFreight.

Mediterranean corridor

During the tests last week, five trips were made in each direction. Preparations for the opening of the new section, in which 413 million euros have been invested, will continue with the training of train drivers.

Can cross-border ticketing become European?

After commissioning, the Spanish railway operator will work on the preparation of a double-track high-speed railway with an investment of 187 million euros. The main goal is to connect the three provincial capitals – Alicante, Valencia and Castellón de la Plana – with a faster rail line.

Thus, the province of Valencia will become an integral part of the Mediterranean international corridor, important for freight traffic. Adif estimates that a functioning corridor will lead to a 2.2% increase in GDP in the current decade.
