After traffic in Alhama de Aragon was restored, the Madrid-Barcelona High Speed Line has been reopened. Adif reported this on social media.
Passenger on the train that was on one of the tracks along the Ariza-Alhama de Aragon route, which was damaged by the incident, had to be transferred in order to allow the line to resume. This work was completed at 18.24.
The fault in the electrification system caused the suspension of the Madrid-Barcelona high-speed line. Europa Press reported that the breakdown occurred on a train owned by another railway operator than Renfe.
This incident is unrelated to Renfe. The railway company manages an alternate road service to ensure mobility for affected customers.
Renfe also allows cancellations and changes free of charge, and keeps its commitment to punctuality. The company highlighted the fact that Adif technicians and the railway operator affected are working together to resolve the issue.
Adif also expressed regret for any inconvenience caused by the incident to passengers.
