THE Murcia to Almeria high-speed railway is looking to be on track.
The Development Ministry has now awarded all the outstanding works contracts for the AVE high-speed link in Almeria.
The ADIF State rail infrastructure administrator this week allocated the contracts for the stretches of line running between the currently bricked up tunnels in Los Arejos in Sorbas and from there to the River Andarax in Viator.
The €118 million contract for the 17.8-kilometre Los Arejos-Nijar line going through Sorbas, Lucainena de las Torres and Nijar has gone to the company Sacyr Infraestructuras. The company Contratas y Ventas (Convensa) has won the €107 million contract for the 25.5-kilometre Nijar-River Andarax section.
Both contracts have a completion period of 32 months.
Also this week, the ADIF Administration Council allocated the €86 million construction contract for the nearly nine-kilometre Nonduermas-Sangonera line segment in Murcia region, which also makes up part of the Almeria-Murcia route.
The latest high-speed link allocations follow the award of the works contracts for the River Andarax-El Puche and Pulpi-Vera sections of line in January.
