This new infrastructure of the Port of Sagunto will have the technological advances necessary to provide high-performance, sustainable and competitive services to reinforce the role of the Port of Sagunto as a benchmark industrial port in the Western Mediterranean. Key infrastructure to generate wealth and employment The PAV has invested more than 360 million euros in the construction and rehabilitation of the infrastructures of the Port of Sagunto in the last 20 years, an investment that has allowed the Saguntine facilities to expand their activity and modernize their processes, consolidating as a port of reference in Spain. This commitment of the PAV for the Sagunto facilities has positioned the infrastructure as a reference center in Spain in freight traffic. In line with these objectives, the PAV has promoted the construction of a new road and rail access to the south in order to provide the port of Sagunto with port infrastructures and services that respond to adequate maritime-land intermodality, through of an efficient and safe road and rail network, adequately connected with the rest of the transport system and with logistics nodes of high interest in the Mediterranean and Cantabrian-Mediterranean Corridors.
