The port of Barcelona invests 30 million to move 750-meter trains in Aragon

The port of Barcelona has redoubled its commitment to Aragon and will invest more than 30 million euros in the construction of ten 750-meter railway sidings to boost freight traffic in Aragon, so that the same high-capacity trains that do in Europe can circulate. The investment will allow a qualitative leap, since the companies will be able to operate convoys of up to 750 meters in length, a third more than the current ones, with the consequent cost savings.

The port authority will assume the full cost and the Railway Infrastructure Administrator (Adif), owner of the network, will be in charge of both the drafting of the projects and the execution of the work. This is established by the agreement signed at the end of October, by which the action will focus on a first phase on the route between Zaragoza and Reus to give continuity to the one that will arrive in Barcelona when the works in progress in the Mediterranean Corridor are completed.

Aragon has the peculiarity of having two conventional train lines that connect Zaragoza with Barcelona, ​​those of Lérida and Caspe. As they are unique tracks, and pay to gain operability in the operation, freight companies use them as a circuit: the trains that go to Catalonia do so through Lleida and return through Caspe.

Thus, the ten planned sidings will be distributed between both lines at an equidistant distanceThus, the 750-meter trains can be crossed with the regional trains that continue to run on the conventional network.

Official Adif sources explained that the functional study that will determine the location has already been commissioned, although the locations have been determined in a first phase. The intention is to increase the byways of existing stations or sidings, so that they go from being between 410 and 500 meters to 750 meters. On the Caspe line, they will be installed in Fuentes de Ebro, Nonaspe and Chiprana (Zaragoza), La Puebla de Híjar (Teruel) and Flix (Tarragona), while on the Lérida line they will be located in Almudévar, Marcén-Poleñino and Selgua (Huesca) and Raimat and Juneda (Lleida).

The head of Strategy of the port of Barcelona, ​​Jordi Torrent, explained to this newspaper that the plans go through draft the projects in the coming months and release the sidings before the end of 2024. Subsequently, the network will be extended from Zaragoza to Madrid and Pamplona.

They will not be the only ones, since the port of Valencia is doing the same on the Teruel line. Works are underway to build another seven 750-meter sidings between Cariñena and Barracas.

Torrent insisted that they were the first port to bet on Aragon twenty years ago, “convinced that it was going to become a very important territory in foreign trade.” And this has been achieved together with the economies of Navarra and Catalonia, which translates into a significant flow of rail freight between the Aragonese terminals and Barcelona. In high season, up to half a dozen daily convoys depart from the Zaragoza Maritime Terminal (TMZ), to which are added up to four weekly from the two from Plaza and up to eight from the Monzón intermodal terminal.

The head of Strategy of the port of Barcelona stressed that the investment is strategic to attract more cargo to the railway, given that 750 meter trains allow reduce costs between 20% and 22% and its objective is to exploit another market niche, the traffic of agri-food bulks for the pig sector. “It stands out in Aragon and you just have to think that up to 200 trucks load daily in the port for the farms of Aragon and the Catalan industry,” he said.

Monzón becomes the third private terminal in the country

The Intermodal Freight Terminal (TIM) of Monzón has become the third facility in the country, only surpassed by those of Coslada and Azuqueca in Madrid. With the capacity to manage 2,000 trains a year, its forecast is to end this year with a growth of 30%, touching 1,300 convoys and half a million tons.

The bottleneck is the Selgua route, which is only 410 meters long and forces the trains to start to access the facilities.. Hence the importance of one of the 750-meter sidings going to end this problem. The director of TIM, José Antonio Ramos, explained that with this investment agreed with the port of Barcelona, ​​the point of origin and destination of most of the Samca group convoys and the rest of the clients, the number of trains will be doubled. .

Aragon has 102 covid patients in the ICU and the health workers warn that there are no staff for extra beds

Aragon has already exceeded one hundred covid patients in the ICU in this second wave of the pandemic. Health reported this Saturday 1,264 infections, a figure that continues to increase, as well as the number of hospitalized: 888, 102 of them in intensive care. A healthcare pressure that is increasing and that has been growing exponentially throughout the month of October. Doctors and nurses warn that the coronavirus pandemic is putting the health system in a “very complicated” situation, since the high number of daily positives translates into an increase in income. Intensive care units are becoming so “overloaded” that urgent measures must be taken to create new jobs to meet the demand for care, although, as they warn, doubling beds is useless if there are no resources or personnel.

The job boards of these professionals have been at zero for months and they remember that “training staff takes years.” Concern increases when comparing the current wave with what happened in spring, when the emergency was triggered by the covid, which made it necessary to remove intensive care places from resuscitation spaces, thus compromising the surgical activity. And it arrives, explains Teresa Tolosana, president of the Official College of Nursing of Zaragoza, with the workers “tired and sad, doubling shifts and putting in long hours.” The nursing staff of the ucis, he assures, lives “tense” days because they are “24 hours a day at the bedside of the sick.” “And we should begin to assess – he added – that the organization of these units would have to depend more on them.” The ratio is raised for current beds, but “if we start to double places it will no longer be reached” and from there, he indicated, “ask the nurses to reinforce the service.” “There should be a bag of people ready to do this job” because now, Tolosana stresses, “they think they are good for everything and they work with the nursing staff as if they were polyvalent, and that is lack of vision”.

The Community has, according to Health data, 219 ICU positions, and almost half of them are occupied by covid patients. President Javier Lambán moved on Friday that up to 340 could be enabled, although among professionals there are doubts about how they could be provided. Concha Ferrer, president of the Official College of Physicians of Zaragoza, points out that “the problem is where the staff comes from” and recalled: “In the first wave, professionals from other services were already employed, and other doctors have to be used, such as anesthetists, because there are not enough intensivists. ” Another worrying fact, he reveals, is that the average age of infected people is increasing in recent weeks: “Now it is already over 50 and those over 75 have also increased”. These are data to take into account because “there will be a higher percentage that will require hospital services”. “There is no management and no planning”, criticized Ferrer, who pointed out at the same time that “it is not a specific situation” and “you cannot ask professionals for an effort of this type on a continuous basis.”

“An upward curve starting from a bad situation makes us arrive at the figures given by Aragón”, explained, with a cumulative incidence in the last 14 days of 1,030 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and 47.12% of ICU beds occupied by covid patients, the highest percentage among the autonomous communities. The positivity rate (18% in PCR tests) shows, he said, that there are many infected in the population.
