Posted on in News

Spain's Ministry of Development has released a tender for a Feasibility Study build a new railway station at Alicante-Elche airport and link it to the existing route between Murcia and Alicante.

Currently the Alicante-Murcia railway service rund on a single electrified track bypassing the airport and has to make a reversal at the San Gabriel stop, which increased journey time and efficiency. The Feasibility Study will look at how to best connect the line with the airport and eliminate the reversal at San Gabriel.

The allocated funding for the work is EUR 489,566.00.
