The Port Authority of Bilbao has awarded the tender for the first phase of the development works for the Railway Logistics terminal (TELOF in Spanish) at Pancorbo (Burgos), worth 4,527,100 euros with a ten-month completion period, to the Temporary Consortium formed by Rover Alcisa and Cyes Maritime Works.
In this phase, 60,000 of a total terminal surface area of 480,000 square metres will be developed. The rest will be flexibly developed in phases according to the needs and cargo types of those customers wishing to set up in this logistics zone.
Terminal with Rail Connection
The Port Authority terminal at Pancorbo has a rail connection and service tracks – that is, a 750-metre train reception and despatch track together with two electrified shunting tracks for 650 and 100 metre operation, as well as two 750-metre long tracks for loading and discharge. The track gauge is Iberian, although it can change to international standard.
The Port Authority invested some 15 million euros in these connection works and the project also received European aid as part of the IBUK-Intermodal Corridor Project.
