Port Of Seville Tender To Be Issued For New Rail Connection

Port of Seville tender to be issued for new rail connection

Seville, Spain (PortSEurope) January 12, 2022 – Adif, the state-owned rail infrastructure manager, is to issue a tender for the construction project for the new railway access to the Port of Seville. The work has an estimated value of €19.81 million (VAT not included), which includes the value of the supplies provided by Adif, and an execution period of 12 months. The project will be financed
by the Financial Fund for Port Land Accessibility, through the Port Institution, and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), through Adif. The Port Authority allocate a maximum of €13.5 million to the execution of the project in its entirety, while the contribution of the ERDF, through Adif, has been estimated at about €11.5 million euros. The objective of the new railway branch is to provide direct access to the Port of Seville, avoiding the passage and reversal manoeuvres that are currently necessary. This project is strategic for the Port of Seville, as it will allow rail transport to gain competitiveness and efficiency by reducing train passage times (around 2 hours and 30 minutes). Likewise, it will provide the port infrastructure with the necessary conditions so that the entry of merchandise by train to the port area can be carried out without determining length and load. Due to its status as an inland seaport, the Port of Seville stands out in rail traffic with trains that connect Seville with Madrid, Bilbao, Extremadura, Córdoba, Valencia and Sines. It is a multimodal enclave, constitutes a main node of the Basic Network (Core Network) and is part of the Mediterranean corridor of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T).
