Adif invests millions in making A Coruña high-speed ready

What the station and the surrounding area will look like. 2022, Adif

Adif has earmarked 72,5 million euros for investment in an overhaul of the train station in A Coruña. The historical site will be upgraded to accommodate the expected uptick in traffic as a result of new high-speed services to the autonomous community of Galicia, situated at the northwestern tip of the Iberian peninsula.

A Coruña’s train station dates back to 1935, and Spanish multinational Ferrovial will work to preserve the original structure. The construction company will create a new lobby with a shopping area and waiting lounge. Inside, the location of the information and ticketing points will be changed, too. The tracks will be rearranged so that platform 1 will serve long-distance trains, while platforms 2 and 3 will accommodate medium-distance trains.

The space in front of the station’s facade will be remodelled to accommodate taxis and buses, as well as private vehicles for kiss & ride. A new pedestrian overpass will be constructed to connect Sardiñeira Avenue with Ferrocarril Avenue, which run parallel to the track.

The final pieces of the project will be to construct a new administrative building, a modernisation of the communications systems, new electronic interlocking and access control.
