Platform of the Madrid-Zaragoza-Barcelona-French border high-speed line, urban tunnel stretch and Girona station, Spain.

The stretch developed in this project includes a stretch of the new High-speed Line which crosses the city of Girona. It begins on the current railway corridor at the Mas Xirgú Industrial Estate, north of Mercancías station and crosses the city of Girona via tunnel. The route has been defined along the entire stretch by the axis of the double track platform.
The constructive solution is the creation of a tunnel with a tunnel boring machine and the station between slurry walls. (Tunnel with tunnel boring machine: about 3 km and the 700 m-long by 45 m-wide station between slurry walls using a hydro milling machine).
