Mediterranean Railway Corridor has more “allies” in Europe than in Spain

The so-called Mediterranean Railway Corridor, a long-awaited infrastructure which is set to connect the ports along the Mediterranean coast and through Europe, continues to be one of the Catalan Government priorities for Spanish Government investment. “It is a clear demand,” said Catalan Minister for Territory and Sustainability, Josep Rull, and called for matching the “fantastic ports connection” with “equally excellent rail infrastructure” in order to “boost the productivity of the sector”. Rull admitted he was surprised that the Mediterranean ports’ demand to build the Corridor “has more allies in northern ports of Europe” than “within the Spanish State”. Rull made these statements during the opening of the European Sea Ports Organization (ESPO) Annual Conference, which took place this Thursday in Barcelona.
