121 tonnes of rail, 550 tonnes of sleepers and 145 lorries loaded with ballast are just one example of what goes into building just one kilometre of single track on a high-speed line. Technicians from Ineco have been working with Adif and Adif Alta Velocidad for more than 15 years to guarantee the quality and supply of all railway materials used for track assembly. A job that requires maximum rigour and, over time, has resulted in the creation of a proven methodology.
A new façade, ramps, two lifts, enlarged platforms and new tactile flooring are just some of the upgrades in the comprehensive refurbishment of the Cercanías station of San José de Valderas in the city of Alcorcón, south of Madrid, with Ineco responsible

The tunnel more than three kilometres long to extend Line 2 of Barcelona’s commuter rail suburban train network to terminal T1 of El Prat Airport is now a reality. In December 2018, tunnel boring under the airfield at a depth of 20 metres was completed.

The company is also drafting the project for the phase two.
A feasibility study for a 772-kilometre high-speed line between Mumbai and Nagpur, the first phase of the Mumbai-Kolkata corridor, is the latest project that Ineco and Adif are carrying out for the Indian government.
