The new high speed rail line (HSRL) connecting the Madrid stations of Atocha and Chamartin requires the adaptation of these stations as well as the improvement of the connection to the rest of transport modes in Madrid.

The Action is part of a Global Project aiming at connecting the HSRL network in the Core Urban node of Madrid. It comprised preparation of the detailed design for the adaptation of the Chamartin station to the new high speed services as well as to improve its intermodal access. It also included a feasibility study for the HSRL connection to the airport.

The Action contributed to ensuring permeability of the HSR lines through the node of Madrid, reduction of travel time between different modalities of transport, promotion of sustainable and environmental friendly transport.
