The Spanish Government has approved the procurement of works on seven high speed lines for a total sum of 1562.5 million euros. The public works investment, the largest made by the Ministry of Public Works for some time, will help to create employment and reactivate the economy.

This investment covers the construction of the La Sagrera station in Barcelona, the first two high speed sections between Valencia and Castellón, and the last section of the Monforte del Cid-Murcia route, which was still in the design phase.
It also includes complementary actions on the Pajares By-Pass, the track formation of three subsections on the Lubián-Ourense section and the Phase I Bobadilla Junction section situated in Málaga province, as well as the Grimaldo-Casas de Millán subsection in Cáceres province.
