Málaga, Spain (PortSEurope) January 12, 2018 – Málaga City Council and Málaga port authority (Autoridad Portuaria de Málaga) will go hand in hand to demand that the central government executes once and for all the project for constructing an underground railway access to the docks.
The project has been in a deadlock since 2010 and was included for the first time in the General State Budgets despite the fact that the one kilometre route (the underground passage itself would have a length about 700 metres) is key to enhance the transport of cargo in the Málaga area.
Spanish state-run railway infrastructure operator Administrador de Infraestructuras Ferroviarias (Adif), during the socialist government led by José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, drafted a project but did not call a tender. The port has been in charge of reviewing and updating these studies, but they are still waiting for the Spanish Ministry of Public Works to prepare a new technical and feasibility report.
