THE PRINCE OF ASTURIAS OPENS THE AVE MADRID-ALICANTE

On Monday July 17, 2013, the Prince of Asturias, accompanied by the President of the Government and the Minister of Public Works, has made the first voyage of the new high speed line Madrid-Cuenca-Albacete-Alicante.

The new line will reduce the current travel time between Madrid and Alicante in over fifty minutes, maintaining a travel time of two hours and twenty minutes.

The Madrid-Cuenca-Albacete is in service since 2010. The line is now complete with the journey Albacete-Alicante, and GINPROSA has participation on the section of La Encina Junction.

La Encina Junction, in the vicinity of the town of La Encina, is the point of intersection of the Madrid to Alicante, Madrid to Valencia, and the Mediterranean Corridor railway lines in the section between Valencia and Alicante. It is triangular-shaped, with sides that are defined by the new Albacete-Alicante, Alicante-Valencia and Albacete-Valencia axis lines.
