SENER will develop the Detailed Design for the Northern Extension of Granada Metro22/06/2021 (Spain)
The Consejería de Fomento, Infraestructuras y Ordenación del Territorio of the Regional Government of Andalucía (Junta de Andalucía) has awarded SENER, in consortium with ARCS Estudios y Servicios Técnicos, the contract for the drafting of the Detailed Design for the Northern Extension of Granada Metro.
This includes both the processing of the Public Information and the obtaining of the Unified Environmental Authorization. The Northern Extension of Granada Metro will start in Albolote, which is the northern terminus of the line in commercial operation, and its route will extend at least as far as the municipality of Atarfe. Within the development of the works, the contract establishes a first phase for the drafting of the preliminary Design, which will have to define the corridor of the extension and its possible alternatives or variants, determining a period of three months for its elaboration, to then be submitted to the Public Information process, which will take another two additional months. Finally, in the following eight months, SENER will have to draw up the Detailed Design, in accordance with both the resolution of the Public Information and the Unified Environmental Authorization.
The scope of the drafting of the Detailed Design, which is the technical document required for the tendering of the work, covers both the definition of the infrastructure (track formation) and the superstructure (track), urbanization, installations and electrification, communications and safety systems, as well as the architecture of the bus shelters. In other words, all the necessary actions except for the supply of rolling stock (trains).
