The new station will allow the optimization of railroad and commercial exploitation, improve both horizontal and vertical mobility within the inside of the station area and increase the transversal accessibility to this zone and therefore enhance general access conditions in the whole area.
Additionally, complementary works shall be carried out regarding service replacement.
The budget contemplated for this phase ascends to slightly more than €29 million.
Another noteworthy aspect in this phase is the removal and disposal of the slabs situated next to the Parque de la España Industrial, on the seaward side of the station in the area where track 14 and the car park are to be built.
Amongst the works related to tracks 11, 12 and 13, is the creation of openings in the existing enclosing wall of the station to widen the current platform 7, which will offer service to tracks 13 and 14.
