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. Having drafted the project in 2009, Ineco is now managing the works, which include a new intermodal station currently under construction in terminal T2. 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. The study is part of the advisory services that Spain is providing to India in relation to its plan to develop an ambitious high-speed rail network (The Diamond Quadrilateral Project).
Ineco has drafted the preliminary studies and projects and managed the works for the comprehensive renovation of this 217-kilometre historic line that crosses the Cantabrian Mountains. Built 150 years ago, it is still a vital corridor both for freight –especially vehicles manufactured in Castilla y León– and for rail passengers. The duplication of sections of track between Santander and Torrelavega, which is expected to start in 2019, will complete improvements in speed, safety, passenger comfort and freight capacity.
Malaysia wants to modernise its railways to make them the main public transport option for its citizens. To do this, a consortium consisting of Ineco, Adif and two Malaysian companies has designed a new open-access model for railway transport in which ownership and management of the infrastructure are unbundled from operation, allowing new private operators to enter.
