The Port Authority of Valencia (PAV) has met with the local council and the Regional Ministry of Development of Castilla-La Mancha to make progress in the implementation of a new intermodal infrastructure.
One of Valenciaport’s short term strategic initiatives is the development and execution of the Alcázar de San Juan logistics-intermodal platform.
During a recent meeting, the go-ahead was granted for the initiation of the procedures for the direct awarding of the preliminary project for the terminal.
Similarly, in order to maximise the profitability of this dry port, the development business has chosen to create a 750-metre platform.
At the meeting, it was also agreed that the private sector would participate in the development of the platform with around 30 per cent of the capital in order to respond to the interest and demand of the private sector in Castilla-La Mancha to invest in this infrastructure.
The completion of this infrastructure is critical for Valenciaport in order for firms in Valencia’s sphere of influence to have better access to worldwide markets in a more competitive and ecologically friendly manner owing to the railway.
Furthermore, because of its compatibility with the decarbonisation goal and its support to the economic growth of places such as Castilla-La Mancha, it deems its development to be strategic.
For the government of La Mancha, it would guarantee access to international markets for the autonomous region’s enterprises, owing to the direct link with the docks of Valenciaport.
