The Port of A Coruña is the sixth most important in Spain in terms of cargo traffic by rail; therefore, having a rail link is one of the main priorities of the Port Authority within the objective of positioning the Outer Port as a logistics node of international reference and fostering the competitiveness of the port operators.
IDOM will design a rail link project single-track, which will be electrified in the future. It consists on a main line of 5.58 km (including the connection in the direction of A Coruña) and a 0.96 km branch in the direction of Santiago.
Regarding the environmental impact, the design incorporates preventive and corrective measures in accordance with the corresponding declaration. Finally, IDOM will support the Port Authority in obtaining European funding, developing the required economic and financial studies.
