Around the year 2000, the railway complex underwent some renovation works, all with the aim of increasing its capacity, since the number of users, mainly High-Speed train users, did not stop growing.

During the first years, the station shared routes of the conventional network and of standard gauge, but over the time the Iberian and conventional routes have been replaced by standard gauge tracks routes, those used in the network for high-speed. The same happened with the electrification, which was gradually adapted to the High Speed ??lines.
