Just read on Costa Blanca news website about proposed new High speed rail link between El Altet (Alicante airport) and Valencia.

Anyone know any more ?   Is this an expansion of the existing Alicante to Denia Tram line or a complete new one ?

Any ideas on timescales / routes ?

Sounds potentially good news for airport links for me at Calpe, hopefully, fingers crossed

Well, the map I saw a short while ago indicated that the route was nowhere near Marina Alta (ie the Denia link) but seemed to go via Alcoy. No luck there then for us marooned here!

Just found this on another forum:


Re: High Speed Rail Link - Alicante to Valencia

I found this through "translate" on sounds like it goes beside ap-7:
The train from Valencia to Alicante will be divided into three sections. The first two, Cullera, Gandia, Denia and Gandia, shall implement the Ministry of Development, while Dénia, Alicante assume the Generalitat, as well as the stretch Gandia-Oliva, which is already public information and the approved environmental impact statement .
The solution proposed in the draft agreement to be signed by both governments define the proposed railway line between Benidorm-Alicante-Valencia, exclusively for the carriage of passengers, standard gauge and a reference speed of 200 kilometers per hour. The corridor would follow the path opened by the AP-7 and begins on the Alicante stretch La Encina-line high-speed Madrid-Valencia, in the municipality of Alicante, to Pedreguer, where a point near the border with the town of Denia connecting with the connection to Valencia.
The total length of this stretch between Alicante and Denia will be 88.941 km, of which 9.130, 10.3 percent of the total, under a section of tunnel, of which there are provided a total of twelve for the entire project, and the rest surface platform.. For all of the line between the two provincial capitals, the extension amounts to 180 miles that separate them.
At the Council said yesterday the intention that the protocol between the two administrations will be signed "in the shortest time possible," to give a definitive boost to the project. Y también destacaron que, por su parte, la reserva de espacio esperan que esté del todo concluida en agosto. And also noted that, for its part, the reservation of space expected to be fully completed in August.

Interesting development on the previous thoughts (which been in the air for many years). So, to my reading, there will be a new rail link from Denia to Pedrequer which will obviate the need for the extension along the coast from Denia to Gandia?

All in all, we can expect these plans to be mulled over for approximately 25 years and then no doubt shelved! 25 years is beyond my expected life span, regretably,  but there may be hope for the future.

Thank for the useful piece.
