Better access to the Port of Barcelona thanks to EU co-funding

Creation date: October 16, 2013

The European Union will provide €790,000 from the TEN-T Programme to support a series of studies looking at ways to improve the road and rail access to the Spanish Port of Barcelona. The studies, which contribute to the realisation of the "High-speed railway axis of southwest Europe" (TEN-T Priority Project 3) will pave the way for the works to realise the new access routes.


The studies, which were selected for funding under the 2012 TEN-T Multi-Annual Call, will look at the best possible ways to create a new southern road and railway access to the Port of Barcelona, including access to the new Prat dock and the Tercat-Hutchison container terminals.


They will look at the technical assessment of the alternatives for implementation, including the planning and final design studies as well as the financial-economic analysis.


The studies are set to be completed by the end of 2014.
