Descripción
The length of the Spanish High Speed Rail (HSR) network has been steadily growing since its opening in 1992. It is currently the second longest network in the world, with over 3,200 km. This important network development has significantly improved rail accessibility, increasing average accessibility values of the Spanish mainland in a 48.6%. Meanwhile, a profound transformation in the spatial distribution of rail accessibility values has also taken place. These spatial distributive effects are of great importance for the assessment of HSR developments, and are related to the strategic territorial cohesion goal. In the Spanish case, since 1992, a more balanced territorial distribution of rail accessibility has been achieved, with a 15% reduction in the dispersion of accessibility values, i.e. in accessibility terms, a positive territorial cohesion effect. We believe the next steps in the strategic planning process of the Spanish HSR network -currently under assessment- should take into account the valuable lessons learned from the past. Our research is therefore aimed at supporting this planning process, presenting a methodology based in the computation of accessibility indicators, with the support of a Geographical Information System (GIS). The methodology is applied to a set of 10 new corridor development alternatives in Spain, planned for the 2025 time horizon. Each of these corridors is assessed both in terms of their impact on rail accessibility and in terms of their effect on the territorial balance of accessibility values. The main findings are contextualized in terms of the Spanish current strategic planning framework, and future research directions are outlined.
