  • Now that this work has been completed, vehicles are now able to travel through this area.
  • This proceeding is part of the refurbishment of the surface section of this line that will connect the city centre and Natzaret.

Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat Valenciana (FGV) has finished the works started last April 2nd, to install the connecting rail between the tram platforms already built, at the intersection of Antonio Ferrandis Avenue and Amado Granell Avenue.

The completion of these works has allowed vehicles to begin to travel through the affected area, so it is no longer necessary to use the alternative routes established, due to the impossibility of travelling through this intersection in the direction of the new university hospital La Fe.

The existing rail at this intersection was removed in 2015 in order to enable vehicles to travel through this area and with the understanding that the project was not going to be resumed. Now, with the implementation of the Line 10 works for its commissioning in 2022 by the Generalitat, it has been necessary to reinstall the rail in this area.

These works form part of the proceedings to be carried out on the refurbishment of the track superstructure, architecture and equipment of Metrovalencia’s Line 10 (Alicante-Natzaret), corresponding to the surface section, from the tunnel exit at the Amado Granell ramp to the Natzaret district, with a budget of over six million euros.

The proceedings planned in this project also include the construction in the Natzaret district of the temporary depot for the tram units that will run along this extension of the current Metrovalencia network.

The architectural work on the surface stops includes the refurbishment and equipping of the shelters, as well as the electrical installations and lighting, notices, tolls and passenger information and the urban development of the areas affected by the work.

The construction project for this line as a whole is co-financed by the European Union, through the 2014-2020 European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) operational programme for the Valencian Community.

Once completed, Line 10 will connect the centre of Valencia with the City of Arts and Sciences area and the Nazaret district, considerably extending the transport service of the Metrovalencia network. This line combines underground and surface sections, covering a distance of 5.3 kilometres and with 8 stations and stops (3 underground and 5 above-ground).
