Santander, Spain (PortSEurope) May 28, 2021 – Adif will issue a tender for the works of the Espinosa-El Caballo station, located in the municipality of Espinosa de Villagonzalo, in Palencia. It is part of the improvement of rail freight transport with Santander port. The objective of this action, with a planned amount of €2.21 million and an execution period of four months, is to adapt the
infrastructure of this railway line to allow longer freight trains. The necessary works will be undertaken to achieve a 750-meter bypass track for trains, in order to favour operations and maneuvers on the railway line, with destination and origin in the port of Santander and the Fasa-Renault factory in Valladolid. The project foresees the extension of the existing section 2 track to reach 750 meters, an action that includes the renewal of ballast, sleepers and rails of the section, the modification of security and communications facilities and the electrification of the track. Adif is a Spanish state-owned railway infrastructure manager under the responsibility of the Ministry of Development, charged with the management of most of Spain’s railway infrastructure, including track, signaling and stations.
