TYPSA is carrying out, in partnership with two other engineering companies, the construction supervision of the High-Speed railway infrastructure Integration Project in Valencia. With a budget of close to 500 million euros and a term of 5 years, this project represents a fundamental milestone in Valencia´s railway integration and in the development of the Mediterranean Corridor, as well as meeting the increase in demand derived from the liberalization of passenger transport.
All railway accesses to Joaquin Sorolla and València Nord stations will be underground in a new access tunnel, connecting with the existing tunnels in the South Node and with the railways from Fuente San Luis and Silla. This will change the urban layout, connecting, after 180 years, the neighbourhoods of La Creu Coberta and Malilla (the southern area of Valencia) which, despite their physical proximity, have been historically remote due to the railway lines.
The works include the track bed, track, and electrification necessary for the connection of the new tracks with the current ones, in accordance with the forecasted network traffic and with the railway replacements generated, in order to keep all services running throughout the duration of the works. The scope also includes remodelling the Joaquin Sorolla Station, the expansion of its car parking area, the execution of a new gauge changer in the surroundings of the South Node / Fuente de San Luis and the improvement of the protection and security facilities in the access tunnels to Valencia.
TYPSA leads the team for construction supervision support services, after being awarded the tender by Adif at the end of last year, with a powerful team of engineers, architects and other technicians, as well as specialists in BIM management.
On February 6, an institutional act was held for the project kick-off, with the presence of the Minister for Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, the President of the Generalitat Valenciana, the Mayor of Valencia, the Delegate of the Government, and the Consellera of Territorial Policy, Public Works and Mobility, amongst others.
