The rail freight services in the area of Orense in Northwest Spain will be disrupted between 8th and 24th May due to works on a high-speed connection between Galicia and Madrid.
As a result, the poultry cooperative Coren will not be able to use the customised rail freight service to supply with cereal feed its logistical area in San Cibrao, Orense. This grocery comes from the port of Marin, in the province of Pontevedra, 120 kilometres far from Orense. Coren is the largest Spanish turkey and chicken egg supplier, this service being essential to secure its supply chain.
This will also affect the rail freight service of Sogama, the main rubbish area in Galicia, which receives one daily train from Taboadela, 16 kilometres far from Orense. Both goods will have to be transported by lorries.
These civil works will build the high-speed rail track between Taboadela and Orense. Meanwhile, the rest of rail freight service will be able to use other rail tracks. In addition, passenger services between Orense and Zamora will use coaches, although night services between Monforte and Leon will be operated as normal.
There are eight construction companies working in the area not only to develop the high-speed rail connection but also to update the bridge over river Miño, taking advantage of the absence of trains during this period.
When these works are completed, passenger and cargo services can go back into regular operation. There will be a new shutdown in October 2019, taking around 15 days.
