The Castellón Port Authority will put out this year the draft of the construction project for the intermodal station that will be located on the route of the new southern railway access to the port. This was announced by the president of the Castellón Port Authority, Rafa Simó, and the Minister of Territorial Policy, Public Works and Mobility, Arcadi España, after the meeting held to review the status of projects in which both administrations are involved, to which was also attended by the director of PortCastelló, Ana Ulloa.
Arcadi España has highlighted the role of the port of Castellón as an economic engine and generator of opportunities in its surroundings and has highlighted the collaboration between the two entities to promote productive infrastructures that can be included in the framework of the Recovery Fund agreed to help repair the economic and social damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The drafting of the construction project for the intermodal station, as well as the economic-financial study, will promote a productive infrastructure that will save logistics costs for Castellón companies and will allow increasing the traffic of PortCastelló.
It must be remembered that the Castellón Port Authority will assume the necessary investment for its development, whose economic value is around 21 million euros. It will be developed in several phases to optimize its operation and foresees future extensions to respond to the real needs of demand in the coming years.
Both officials have stated that the intermodal station is key for the port of Castellón because it will allow increasing the rail modal share, being more competitive and more sustainable, since rail traffic reduces energy costs and reduces environmental impact.
