The President of the Regional Government of Madrid presented the large urban regeneration project at an event held at the seat of the regional government, along with the mayor of Madrid, Adif’s Strategic Planning Manager and DCN’s President.
The President of the Regional Government of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, presented the final project of Madrid Nuevo Norte to all Madrid residents, at an institutional event held in the central courtyard of the Real Casa de Correos, the seat of Government. The participation was extended to all Administrations and actors involved in the project, regarded as one of Europe’s largest urban regeneration initiatives. The event was attended by the Mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, Adif’s Director-General for Strategic Planning and Projects, María Luisa Domínguez, and DCN’s President, Álvaro Aresti.
Álvaro Aresti, the President of DCN, opened the event thanking all the Administrations involved and the people of Madrid for the enormous effort made to move forward together and make Madrid Nuevo Norte a reality. The President of the company believes there is a clear cause for celebration, “because what we are presenting today is not just another urban project, but a one-off action, with a scope and a transformative power never seen before in Spain”, he explained.
Aresti also highlighted that “owing to its magnitude and relevance” Madrid Nuevo Norte is a national project, but above all a “people-centric project”. “It will contribute not only to employment growth and economic prosperity but also welfare,” he added, “helping to improve the quality of life for millions of citizens”.
