More about the AVE Málaga Valencia
The route Málaga Valencia by AVE is a very busy route especially in the summer. There are some direct trains and others with more intermediate stops.
The AVE departs from Málaga María Zambrano station to arrive in approximately 4 hours and 39 minutes to Joaquín Sorolla Valencia station. The passenger will have left behind 468 km without effort, on the contrary, relaxed in one of the comfortable reclining seats of the AVE. During this time you have been able to listen to music, read your favourite book or sleeping.
The Joaquin Sorolla station is next to the Estación del Norte of Valencia, one of the most important stations in Valencia. It offers its services from 2010 and it is a provisional station that will be replaced by the Parque Central Valencia Station.
One of the intentions of this future new station is to hide the railroad in order to recover ground in the city and build a park. In addition, we want to join and integrate the two neighbourhoods that are now separated by the rails. This project has been in progress since 2003 and it is the result of an agreement between various entities, such as ADIF and Renfe Operadora and the Ministry of Development, the Generalitat and the City of Valencia. The day its construction finishes, the temporary station Joaquin Sorolla will be dismantled and all rail services will be transferred to the new building. The new station is expected to improve connections with Valencia. They want to concentrate several services in one: metro, high speed, tram, bus and taxi and thus be able to quickly connect with the city centre and other places within the city.
The park that is supposed to be built looks very favourable. The design is being carried out by the landscaper Kathryn Gustafson. This park is going to stand out for the light, the water and the green, as these are the intentions of the designer. Another element to emphasize is that it will be a sustainable park. It has been designed in such a way that there is a rain collection system that will cover 19% of the irrigation. Likewise, they want to provide the necessary electricity for the park by installing solar panels. The park also wants to provide services for all ages, from playgrounds to vegetable gardens and gardening workshops. Likewise, they want to enable a bike lane for all the roads in the park.
