Work is progressing to ensure intermodal connectivity of the New Container Terminal of the Port of Cádiz

Cádiz, Spain (PortSEurope) June 24, 2019 – Autoridad Portuaria de la Bahía de Cádiz (APBC – Port Authority of Cadiz) is carrying out concurrent work in parallel to ensure intermodal connectivity and competitiveness of the New Container Terminal.

APBC President, Teófila Martínez Saiz, said that a tender would be issued for the paving of 45,000 m³ of esplanade, as well as for the urbanisation of the accesses and basic services to the New Terminal, which awaits government approval and is scheduled to start up in 2020.

The port authority is also drafting a project for the deepening of the navigation channel and has asked the City Council to approve the ADIF project for the railway connection through the industrial area of the port.

Also, the completion of the Border Inspection Post of the New Terminal also already has a favourable report from Puertos del Estado to continue the works next week and be able to finish on schedule.

With regard to land connectivity, the repair work on the tunnel waterway will begin imminently in order to be able to undertake in the near future the second phase of the project of access to the New Container Terminal, consisting of completing the access tunnel.

In relation to the rail connection of the New Container Terminal, which ADIF must execute through the Industrial area, the Board of Directors agreed to require the City Council to definitively approve this project, already tendered and awarded, in order to execute it as soon as possible.

Finally, to guarantee the maritime connectivity of the New Terminal, the Port Authority is already executing the geophysical operation, which will serve as the basis for the environmental processing that will be sent to Puertos del Estado and the Ministry of the Environment. Shortly, the necessary geotechnical campaign for the drafting of the deepening project of the navigation channel will be put out to tender.
