A fault that affects the electrification system interrupts the AVE line between Madrid and Barcelona | Economy

The circulation of trains on the Madrid-Zaragoza-Barcelona high-speed line is interrupted due to the detachment of the catenary, according to sources from the Railway Infrastructure Administrator (Adif). Since 2:55 p.m., a long-distance train from the low-cost rail operator Ouigo, which made the journey from Puerta de Atocha station to Barcelona, ​​has been stopped between the towns of Ariza and Alhama de Aragón, in the province of Zaragoza, as a result of the fault.

The incident affects all the trains on the Madrid-Zaragoza-Barcelona high-speed line and the long-distance trains on the AVE Marsella-Puerta de Atocha. At the moment, the causes that have caused the detachment of the catenary (the line that supplies electricity to the train) are unknown, nor when it will be resolved, although Adif sources have said that work is being done on it.

For its part, Renfe sources have indicated that for passengers on its trains affected by the interruption of circulation, it is managing an alternative service by road. In addition, Renfe allows changes and cancellations free of charge, and maintains its voluntary commitment to punctuality, which includes the refund of the price of the ticket in percentages that can reach up to 100% and that vary depending on the time of the delay. Renfe, through its Twitter account, has acknowledged that the routes will suffer “severe delays” due to the incident.
