Santa Cruz De Tenerife (EFE) finance “hand in hand” with the councils of Gran Canaria and Tenerife.
Román Rodríguez, who is also Minister of Finance, Budgets and European Affairs, has affirmed in the regional Parliament, in response to the deputy of Nueva Canarias Esther González, that after more than a decade of work the railway projects of Tenerife and Gran Canarias count with a high level of maturity.
However, he has specified that in Gran Canaria the unanimity regarding the support of this project is total while in Tenerife there are “legitimate” discrepancies.
Now, for the first time, the Canarian Government “goes hand in hand” with both island corporations to bet on a collective, safe, fast, efficient and sustainable mobility, and for this reason a delegation of which the vice president has been a part has traveled to Brussels and Lower Saxony (Germany) to seek a financial plan.
And this is because “there are sources of financing” that it is possible to capture, from Feder funds to the European Investment Bank, the Connect Europe mechanism, the Next Generation and the Spanish railway policy, continued Román Rodríguez, to indicate that the The projects will be based on “authentically revolutionary” technologies for sustainability, with the incorporation of hydrogen for the operation of the trains.
