Spain has received a €200m loan from the European Investment Bank (EIB) to construct a 128.4km high-speed rail line between Seville and Antequera.

The Seville-Antequera high-speed line will act as an important link for the Andalusia region’s rail network, connecting its main cities of Seville, Málaga, Córdoba, Granada and Almería.

The project includes an interchange station directly connected to Seville airport and stations at Marchena, Osuna and Pedrera. In addition, the new line will join the Córdoba-Málaga high-speed train line at Antequera/Santa Ana station.
