Spain: SYSTRA Gains Consultancy Contract for New High-Speed Line

SYSTRA Subterra has been awarded a new consultancy and assistance contract for the construction of a key section of the future Cantabria – Mediterranean high-speed corridor.

Under this contract, SYSTRA will work with engineering companies, TPF Getinsa Euroestudios SL and Cemosa Ingeniería y Control on a 15-kilometre section of railway track connecting Tafalla and Campanas in Navarre, northern Spain.

SYSTRA Subterra will be responsible for the technical studies of the site, including the underground sections and all geotechnical aspects linked to the embankments, earthworks, foundations and slopes adjoining the track.

The work will be carried out by its final customer, ADIF, which manages the Iberian railway infrastructure.

The Tafalla – Campanas section will be a key rail link for ADIF, integrating Navarra into the Spanish high-speed rail network.

This is part of the overall Cantabria – Mediterranean LGV project, which will connect the Basque Country to Cantabria via Valencia for both passengers and goods.

After entry into service, this line will reduce travel times between Valencia and Santander to just over 4 hours, compared to the current 12 hours.
