Alicante-Valencia rail link land grab

THE REGIONAL public works council has released details of the land that is to be expropriated ahead of the building of the Alicante to Valencia coastal rail link.

The building of the rail line will see property in Alicante, Muchamiel, Campello, San Vicente, Agost, Monforte, Villajoyosa and Benidorm expropriated.

Owners of the affected land now have two months in which to view the plans in their respective town halls and present their appeals should they wish to do so.

Last April, regional government reached an agreement with the public works ministry under which it agreed to build the 82 kilometre stretch of the line between Alicante and Dénia and the ministry would build the remaining 58 kilometres from Dénia to Gandía.

The cost of the project has been put at 1,500 million euros and it envisages a rail link between Alicante airport and Benidorm that will move people between the two destinations in just 36 minutes. Benidorm is listed as being one of the 50 most populated urban areas in Spain yet it is the only one that does not have a proper main line rail link.
