Negotiations for a new opening of the motorway of the sea: Gijón-Nantes

Balearia shipping company confirms that it is interested in the management of the motorway of the sea Gijón-Nantes.

Delfin Tubes - Autopista del mar

A few days ago, the President of Puertos del Estado said that we were closer to the recovery of the line due to negotiations with a shipping company and because of the agreement between the Spanish Government, Asturias Government and the City of Gijón to jointly subsidize this service for a period of two years, trying to mitigate the initial expected losses.
That is why a new line of study is opened for the opening of this motorway, which was suspended in September 2014. Since then, there have been several attempts to open it again, but without success.
The new opening of the Gijón-Nantes line would be important as an alternative for the road transport of goods.
