EU to co-finance study on Spanish intermodal hub
The European Union will contribute EUR 620,000 from the TEN-T programme to co-finance a study for the creation of an intermodal hub in the Spanish region of Asturias. The study will look at the design options for the hub, which, once in operation, aims to make the region the most important logistics area in northwest Spain.
The future intermodal station will facilitate process optimisation and favour synergies between customers and users, as well as improve traffic efficiency and freight distribution between the areas connected by the TEN-T network. The centre will increase the rail share in overland freight transport and improve road/rail and rail/sea transport and the logistic efficiency of freight transport. (ben)
