[The regional government denounces that the Ministry dated December 2020 the completion of the study of the Cartagena railway variant (18/01/2021)

| It urges to fulfill its commitments for the integration of the AVE in the city | The regional government today accused the Ministry of Transport of "relegating its commitment to Cartagena on the drafting of the informative study of the new rail access to the Logistics Activities Zone, ZAL, of Cartagena, whose drafting was committed to the last December 31, 2020 ", according to the Minister of Development and Infrastructure, Jos� Ram�n D�ez de Revenga, who recalled that the Ministry agreed to this request made by the Regional Executive, in collaboration with the Cartagena Port Authority, in May 2019 in order to meet the deadlines for European aid associated with this initiative.

The purpose of this rail access is to achieve the integration, interconnection and interoperability of transport modes in Cartagena, "which is the reason for being in any area of ??logistics activities," he said.

the counselor in a meeting with the president of COEC, Ana Correa, and the vice mayor of Cartagena, Noelia Arroyo, in which he urged the State "to fulfill once and for all the commitments of full integration of Cartagena in the Mediterranean Corridor ".

D�ez de Revenga stated that "the Government of Pedro S�nchez once again forgets this demand from society and the Cartagena business community, which is one of the great values ??of logistics activity and which will allow the the options of connection with the rest of the world ".

The counselor stressed that this variant is "key and a fundamental step" in the start-up of the ZAL, which will make it possible to carry out the necessary projects for the railway connection of this logistical and its intermodal terminal in Cartagena, because without it it is no more than a simple industrial estate ".

The informative study should contemplate the different layout options that allow rail access to increase the capacity of the Cartagena ZAL and achieve its functional integration into the infrastructure.

It will also involve integration in the Mediterranean Corridor, within the framework of the complementary studies of the new railway network in Cartagena.

"Lack of political will" He regretted that "the list of breaches of the Government of Spain with Cartagena and the Murcia Region has no end" and explained that the State "cannot grasp a financing problem because the problem is of political will since this action will be carried out with charge of the funds 'Connect Europe' (CEF), managed by the Port of Cartagena ".

D�ez de Revenga showed that for the connection of Cartagena with the Mediterranean Corridor it is necessary to have the integration project in Cartagena, as well as the entire connection section from the bypass from Beniel to Cartagena, in addition to the drafting of the aforementioned informative study of the variant of merchandise "On numerous occasions we have asked the State to clarify the situation of the project for the arrival of the High Speed ??to Cartagena and learn how, when and the investments planned by the Ministry of Transport," said the counselor.

The layout of 'Don Quixote' The counselor described as "meaningless and unfeasible" the proposed route of the Mediterranean Corridor called 'Quixote route' because "the productive activity of the Corridor is on the coast, therefore it makes no sense to leave this the area off the hook for most of the productive activity ".

"It is unfeasible because the European corridors have been closed for decades and its route is based on solid technical and economic criteria that have not changed," said D�ez de Revenga, who He explained that "an inland corridor would abandon powerful port infrastructures such as the Port of Cartagena and would cease to capture its large merchandise and, therefore, the cost of this new corridor would not be justified".
