Adif has awarded the services contract for the preparation of the project for the standard-gauge connection between the La Llagosta multimodal platform (Barcelona) and the Mediterranean Corridor.
The contract, awarded for 661,442 euros, includes the preparation of the functional and construction projects to strengthen this intermodal logistics center as a strategic point of railway cargo transport in the area closest to Barcelona.
According to Adif, this project is aimed at strengthening the La Llagosta installation, which now dedicates its principal activity to automobile traffic in an area connected to high-capacity railway networks and with intensive industrial activity.
The contract was awarded to the Joint Venture formed by the companies Esteyco and Inserail, with a completion deadline of 26 months for the preparation of the project.
However, the functional study must be completed within the first six months of the contract.
