The national government has set aside a massive €1.6 billion for Andalucia’s infrastructure this year.
Up 23% on the previous year’s investment, Minister for infrastructure, transport and housing, Julio Gomez-Pomar, has identified Andalucia as an integral cog in the country’s economic recovery.
“Andalucian construction companies are to stay tuned,” he said. “They must contribute to economic growth in Spain, it is integral to the nationwide recovery.
“Andalucia is one of the places where most investment has been undertaken in quantitative terms and in relative terms of growth, we have made a strong investment.”
A total of €456 million will be used for road works, €730 million on rail and €239 million on airports.
Meanwhile €111 million will be allocated to housing in the region.
