The Ministry for Transport, Mobility and Urban Affairs has put out, together with ADIF, an international tender for the comprehensive transformation of Chamartín Train Station, making it Europe’s most advanced railway complex. The tender, which has just been given the go-ahead, involves the preparation of the architecture projects required for this ambitious remodelling and the development of adjacent areas. The buildings and facilities will include both the railway complex itself, as well as those for tertiary uses, which correspond to DCN. This will be the first of various interventions and the key to Madrid’s transformation in the coming decades, thanks to the Madrid Nuevo Norte project.
Minister José Luis Ábalos and the president of the railway operator, Isabel Pardo de Vera, presented the tender conditions today at Chamartín Train Station. The jury will consist of representatives from the Ministry for Transport, Mobility and Urban Affairs, ADIF, ADIF High Speed, Madrid City Council and Regional Government of Madrid, professional associations and DCN.
