The operator has assured EFE that The service is being provided normally, apart from the trains that have had to be canceled due to the strike calledand that the minimum services decreed by the Ministry of Transportation are being met.
Renfe sources have added that there is no evidence of significant incidents and that the two that have been registered on the network this morning are unrelated to the strike. One of them between Navalmoral de la Mata and Oropesa (Madrid-Cáceres line) due to an incident in the infrastructure caused by adverse weather, which has already been resolved, and another on the Madrid-Seville high-speed line, between Majarabique and Hornachuelos. .
