Once again, METALESA successfully completes its work on a landmark project to roll out railway infrastructure in Spain, guaranteeing the use of the best safety equipment.

From the point of view of efficiency and maximum use of new infrastructure, it is important to note that the new service from Monforte del Cid – Murcia will consist of double standard-gauge track, which will allow commuter services to connect with Alicante, Elche, Orihuela and Murcia.

When all these sections are finished, the hourney times by train between Madrid and Elche, and between Madrid and Murcia, will reduce to 2 hours and 10 minutes, and to 2 hours and 25 minutes, about 30% of the time of going by road.
