Client: ETS – Euskal Trenbide Sarea.

URIBARRI SECTION

The Uribarricuenta section has a length of some 800 m. The neighbourhood station will have access at Travesía C de Uribarri, Plaza de las Escuelas, San Valentín de Berriotxoa and the area of Zumalakarregi. It links with the following section of the Casco Viejo station and the Deusto direction line.

ARTXANDA TUNNEL AND MATIKO STATION

The Artxanda Tunnel is presented as a solution to the connection problems with Valle del Txorierri, as well as permitting future access to the Loiu Airport. By so doing, the loop currently taken by the railway from the Casco Viejo station will no longer be needed, linking directly through Zumalakarregi and Matiko, thereby requiring the remodelling of the latter station.
