Urban developmentTHE biggest urban development project ever seen in Spain has been stopped dead in its tracks.

The €6 billion Operation Chamartín in Madrid, which included 17,000 new homes, has been halted after missing an approval deadline.

Set ahead of the local elections on May 24, now the project will have to sit on the back burner until long after the votes are counted, and can reapply for approval in November.

The project aims to revitalise the area around Chamartín with 20 residential tower blocks of some 20 stories high and an extension to the railway line to Chamartín.
