More about the AVE Madrid León
Going from the Spanish capital to the city of León, capital of the province of León, will only mean an average length of 2 hours and 10 minutes and the distance between both locations is of 288 km. From Madrid Chamartín we will reach the León station in Avenida Ordoño II.
The arrival of the high speed in León caused the need to remodel its railway infrastructures. It would be necessary to bury the roads and build a new underground construction. First, it would have to adapt the new station to the city. An important decision was to suppress the level crossing of "The cruise", in a very busy point in the avenue doctor Fleming. Since the opening of the León Astorga section, this level crossing took place in 1866. At the time, it did not cause any disturbance to the mobility of the city. However, over the years the city has changed and caused a great barrier for the inhabitants of León, so it was decided to eliminate it. A great urban improvement for all the inhabitants of León.
