- The work carried out on Gran Vía de les Germanies, next to the Russafa district, has made it possible to recover a space that will be integrated into the urban complex of the area.
- The proceeding forms part of the construction project for the track superstructure, architecture and equipment of the underground section of the line that will connect the city centre of Valencia with the Nazaret district.
This proceeding has made it possible to close this unused entrance and integrate it into the urban area of Gran Vía de les Germanies, at the top of the tunnel, next to the Russafa district.
Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat Valenciana (FGV), in coordination with the Valencia City Council, has completed the refurbishment of this new space that incorporates new parking spaces.
The already completed works are part of the construction project for the track superstructure, architecture and equipment of the underground section which has three stations, Alacant, Russafa and Amado Granell.
The planned works are currently underway along the underground section, with a budget of more than 25 million euros. The works include the installation of the entire double track and switches and crossings; drainage and side channels for installations; and the architectural work of the three stations, which includes finishes, flooring, vertical cladding, furnishing, etc.
Last November, as part of the work carried out on this line, FGV started the refurbishment of the track superstructure, architecture and equipment of the surface section, from the exit of the tunnel at the Amado Granell ramp to the Natzaret district, including the construction in the Natzaret district of the temporary depot for the tram units that will run along this extension of the Metrovalencia network.
In terms of works that have already been carried out, last February the construction of the ramp connecting the underground and surface sections at the level of Amado Granell Avenue was completed. The works have included the construction of the surface stop at Hermanos Maristas, for more than 3.8 million euros.
The rest of the contracts, such as that of electrification, installation of substations and connections of the route between Alacant station and Natzaret, and the contract for signposting, communication and safety have already been awarded, are being planned and are awaiting the start of installation works.
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).
The construction project of this line as a whole is co-financed by the European Union, through the operational programme of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) of the Valencian Community 2014-2020.
