COMSA together with COMSA Industrial will be in charge of the second and last phase of the works for the new railway access to terminal T1 of Barcelona-El Prat Airport. The access will allow the establishment of direct suburban train services to both terminals T1 and T2 from Manresa (Barcelona) and Maçanet (Girona) through the current lines R2 and R4, and will be able to accommodate shuttle services between the airport and the High Speed line. The completion of the works will reduce connection times from the center of Barcelona to T1 at El Prat to 20 minutes.
The project includes the assembly of the tracks and superstructure that will enable the branch line to be put into service, with a total length of 4.5 kilometers on double track, of which 3.4 kilometers are underground. The connection from the Baix Llobregat agricultural park to the heart of the T1 terminal will have an intermediate stop at T2, which will also connect with metro line 9.
The architectural work for the two new stations and the connection with the Iberian gauge line from Vilanova to El Prat are also planned, as well as the adaptation of the access tracks and associated equipment, and the electrification system.
