Madrid – Galicia High Speed Railway Line
The high speed corridor between Madrid and Galicia is a high capacity infrastructure that allows access to the northwestern quadrant of the peninsula from Madrid, in a competitive time compared to the plane. This new axis replaces the existing non-electrified single-track railway line with an electrified double-track with a maximum speed of 350 km/h. Thanks to this new infrastructure, travel times are reduced by two-thirds, and travelers can reach Santiago de Compostela from Madrid in two hours and a half, instead of the seven hours and a half it used to take.
This project comprises the construction of the right railway track from Requejo till Padornelo Tunnel. It consists of a single-track corridor, 4130 m long. After the Requejo Tunnel, there is the Pedregales Viaduct, 880 m long.
