- The project has a budget of €50 million and is scheduled for completion within 36 months
The Basque government, through the Basque Railway Network (Euskal Trenbide Sarea), has awarded a consortium comprising ACCIONA, Iza and Altuna y Uria the contract to construct the Miraconcha-Easo phase 2 section of the San Sebastián metro. The works have a budget of €50 million and are scheduled for completion within 36 months.
The section of this project, which spans 1,943 metres, is largely underground and includes the new stations of La Concha and Easo.
La Concha station will be constructed in the heart of the city centre, in a major commercial zone, close to the city’s historical centre, between Paseo de La Concha and Plaza del Buen Pastor.
Easo station will also be completely underground, and on the surface will be located in the Amara and Morlans neighbourhoods, in the vicinity of the existing EuskoTren station, which it will link to in its final section.
ACCIONA has the technical credentials and experience of developing urban mobility solutions. The company has carried out 44 projects in seven countries in the last few years. In the railways and metro sector, ACCIONA has constructed 3,000 km of track, of which 1,200 km are high-speed.
The company also has extensive experience of underground works, having constructed more than 600 km of tunnels. These include the Follo Line railway tunnels in Norway and the Legacy Way tunnels in Brisbane (Australia), both of which have won numerous awards.
ACCIONA has taken part or is participating in constructing metro lines in cities around the world such as Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Málaga, Seville, Valencia, Quito, Sao Paulo, Caracas, Medellín, Hong Kong, Lisbon and Dubai.
