CLIENT: BARCELONA PORT AUTHORITY
The designs of the road and railway accesses to the Port of Barcelona took numerous conditioners into account, including the start of the project to enlarge the new Tercat container terminal (Hutchison).
The initial study collected the existing information on the accesses and proposed a more suitable solution from the technical, economic and operational points of view. It designed two road nodes connected by the Prat road, the remodelling of Street 100 and Street 114 for access to the Prat road and a 3+3 road axis. For the railway accesses, the main proposal was to promote a railway ring to provide service and shunting for easier container transport and sidings were also proposed to serve the new terminal (a railway service branch for Decathlon).
The complexity of this project is in the undertaking of the various phases of the road and railway alignments, taking into account the structures to be designed to serve the future containers terminal in the Port of Barcelona.
The final objective is the preparation of the constructional project for phase 1 of the work for the new accesses to the southern enlargement of the Port of Barcelona according to the specifications in the existing documents.
