Tramway of Alicante. Finca Adoc Tunnel
Next Previous

The Finca Adoc Tunnel belongs to the Alicante's Tramway Line 1. Its goal is to improve the security and capacity in a 2 kilometers sector, which is critical due it´s the only one to have only one railtrack. For this reason, the works include a new doble railtrack platform, through a 1.500 m long tunnel under the "Sierra Grossa", parallel to the coast line and Villajoyosa Avenue.

The tunnel has been digged using the New Austrian Method, with a total of 5 cross-sections designed according to the  different geological stratums detected into the mountain. In these days, the tunnel infraestructure is fully finished. The works pending to start are: track-laying; the overhead power cable, communications and signalling.

After finishing this sector, it will be possible to improve the frequency of services and travel times drastically in the lines 1, 3 and 4 of the Alicante Tramway Network
