The Spanish Government authorises tendering for the construction of the Olmedo Bypass

The Ministry of Transport and Sustainable Mobility has obtained the approval of the Council of Ministers to tender for the construction of the Olmedo bypass railway embankment, with a budget of 38.4 million Euro (VAT excluded).

The Olmedo bypass, known as the Olmedo U, is an 8.2-km link connecting the Madrid-Valladolid and Madrid-Galicia high-speed lines. This connection will allow high-speed transversal journeys across the country’s northern half without passing through Madrid. In particular, it will provide a direct link between Galicia and Valladolid and, from there, with other capitals of Castilla y León, Asturias, Cantabria, Basque Country or France.

The project includes the construction of a 220-metre-long and 14-metre-high viaduct to cross the Adaja River and a 56-metre pergola over the CL-602 road. In its first phase, the bypass will have a single track but will be designed to allow for duplication in the future.

Funding for this project could come from the European Union’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF).
