Train operator Renfe has warned of the need to reschedule its high-speed services in Andalucia due to renovation work on one of its lines.


As detailed by Spanish train operator Renfe in a statement released today, Sunday, July 31, renovation work is due to be carried out by Adif on the high-speed railway line linking Madrid and Andalucia. This action will force the rescheduling of high-speed and long-distance services in the community between August 1 and September 5.

The company explained @Renfe that these works are part of the comprehensive renovation of the infrastructure. They will be carried out between August 1 and September 19 at different points on the Yeles, Toledo to Guadalmez, Ciudad Real route.

As a result of these works, Renfe assured that: “it will be necessary to make cuts in traffic in a timely manner”, which will force trains to circulate on a single track with speed limits.

Renfe will reschedule its trains between August 1 and September 5, with the change of ‘a few minutes’ of the departure and arrival times, and an increase in travel time of about ten minutes on average.

The affected lines are the AVE Madrid-Cordoba-Sevilla, Madrid-Cordoba-Malaga, Madrid-Cordoba-Granada, Barcelona-Cordoba/Sevilla, Barcelona-Malaga, and Barcelona-Granada. Among others, the work will also disrupt the Alvia Madrid-Cadiz, Madrid-Huelva, the Intercity Madrid-Algeciras, and Cadiz-Barcelona routes.

In addition to the aforementioned trains, the schedule of the Avant trains of the Seville-Cordoba-Malaga and Seville-Cordoba-Granada relations, as well as the Madrid-Puertollano service, will also be modified.
