Spain’s Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (Mitma) reached an agreement with the Generalitat de Catalunya to initiate the administrative and economic processing of two of the four agreements to improve connectivity and enhance sustainable mobility.

Agreement was reached on the text of the Interchange Agreement for the execution of interchanges between the General Interest Railway Network and the regional network.

The estimated investment for these two agreements is 420 million euros, to be financed by the Ministry directly or through Adif.

The objective is to develop road and rail infrastructure and also to improve connectivity on existing roads with a view to promoting active and sustainable mobility with actions of pacification, bicycle lanes, energy efficiency, among others.
