Our work in designing solutions aimed at promoting the improvement of mobility through transport networks to increase the quality of life of people and economic competitiveness of territories prompts us, on this occasion, to highlight on the front cover of this issue a project carried out for the Peruvian government to develop the future Central Bi-Oceanic railway (CFBC), a corridor whose purpose is to transport passengers and freight across South America and promote trade between Peru, Bolivia and Brazil.
Also abroad, our experience in planning has led to our participation with Adif as part of the advisory services that Spain is providing to India in relation to its plan to develop an ambitious high-speed rail network, which has been manifested in projects such as the one covered here concerning a feasibility study on a 772-kilometre high-speed line between Mumbai and Nagpur. We also highlight projects such as our recent collaboration on New York’s future Moynihan station and the development of a transport observatory for the Brazilian government, not to mention our proactive participation again at the World ATM Congress, a major international air traffic management trade fair.
We continue to forge ahead with our firm commitment to connecting people in an efficient, sustainable and safe way
In Spain, our commitment to forging ahead with a more efficient, sustainable and safe transport model, thus promoting continuous improvement in the quality of services provided, is also reflected in the goals of two projects carried out in Terminal 1 of Barcelona-El Prat Airport, a terminal that celebrates its tenth anniversary in June of this year 2019. The terminal’s south pier redevelopment and enlargement project will increase its capacity, and the new tunnel that will extend Line 2 of Barcelona’s c network will make it possible for more than 8 million passengers to travel from the Sants station in just 19 minutes. Lastly, we cover the improvements that are being made to the Port of Valencia and to the A Coruña railway station, works that will also contribute to these goals of quality and competitiveness.
We close this issue with a space on corporate social responsibility that features a report on the sustainable development goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which Ineco has integrated into its strategy and which we would like to share with our readers.
