Adif, Valenciaport & Tramesa Agree New Madrid-Valencia Rail Link

Adif, Valenciaport & Tramesa agree new Madrid-Valencia rail link

València, Spain (PortSEurope) September 16, 2021 – Rail operator Adif, Valenciaport and Transportes Mixtos Especiales (Tramesa) have signed an agreement to commission a railway line between Valencia and Madrid in Iberian gauge, which will use the conventional line that was left free with the entry into service of the Alta Velocidad Española, the high-speed rail operated by Renfe. The track will start in the Port of Valencia
from the eastern dock of the port and will allow the truck trailers to be loaded into wagons and transferred to Madrid, from where they will continue their journey to their final destination. Currently, 80% of the rail traffic in the port of Valencia has as its origin or destination Madrid. In the first half of 2021, there were more than 2,000 and 103,926 containers with some 982,165 tons were transported from Valencia to Madrid. The forecast is that the rail highway could be operational within two years, due to the delivery time of the wagons necessary to carry out the service. It will connect with the Abroñigal terminal in Madrid, although it could be transferred to Vicálvaro. The protocol was signed yesterday by Adif president, María Luisa Domínguez, the president of the Valencia Port Authority (APV), Aurelio Martínez, and the president of Tramesa, José Ramón Álvarez.
