Under the project estimated to cost €90m, an overhead electric line powered by 25kV AC will be installed at the section, while safety cables at A Coruña si Santiago de Compostela stations will be replaced by cables with reduction factor.

In addition, the 50Hz circuits in Santiago de Compostela station will be replaced by audio-frequency circuits, the Railway Insider website reports.
