Adif has approved the awarding of a works contract to build four new tracks that can accommodate the reception and dispatch of 750-metre trains, as well as for a new electronic interlocking system in the southern technical area of the Madrid-Vicálvaro Freight Railway Terminal. The contract was awarded to the temporary business association made up of CAF Signalling and Sacyr Neopul.
The amount of this contract is 15.5 million euros and it will be undertaken over a term of eighteen months.
This project is included as part of ADIF’s main strategic lines, due to the importance of the Madrid-Vicálvaro Freight Railway Terminal because of its location at the connecting point of the Mediterranean and Atlantic Corridors.
This project is the first phase of four sub-phases. Given the size of this terminal’s remodelling, project execution has been divided into four phases so that the work can be undertaken without shutting down current operations in the terminal.
For CAF Signalling, this is a new challenge and yet another piece of proof of the trust placed in us by our customers on the domestic market.
The remodel of the Madrid-Vicálvaro terminal is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF).
