Keep going service suspended of trains between Atocha and Recoletos. Renfe and Adif are carrying out tests to investigate the failures and accelerate possible repairs, after they have occurred three incidents in the last 15 days in this tunnel.
Faced with this situation, the Community of Madrid has asked the Ministry of Transport for more investment to avoid serious accidents. “If the Government really does not make a commitment to Cercanías de Madrid, and if it does not make those investments that we have been demanding for a long time, maybe we have to regret something much more serious“warned Marta Rivera de la Cruz, councilor of the Madrid City Council and PP deputy, who has insisted that “this investment in Cercanías is really necessary.”
For its part, the Government has responded that “there are planned investments that the PP Government never made.” “The important thing is to investigate, know well why it happened, and make sure it doesn’t happen again in the futureand provide the necessary means to prevent it from happening,” defended Félix Bolaños.
In addition, there has also been a clash on social networks. And it is that Oscar PuenteMinister of Transport, has blocked Borja Carabante, mobility delegate of the Madrid City Council, in X, the old Twitter. Carabante has reacted by ensuring that this will not prevent them from continuing to protest the incidents. Other popular ones such as Alfonso Serrano or José Luís Martínez-Almeida have criticized this blockade.
