From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Abdalajís tunnel is a 8970m tunnel that forms part of the Córdoba-Málaga high-speed rail line in the Cordillera Bética. The Abdalajís Tunnel System is the 3rd longest railway tunnel (after the Guadarrama Tunnel and Pajares Base Tunnel in Spain. The existence thereof, along with various other long viaducts and tunnels along the line, has enabled Madrid-Málaga journey times of 2 hours and 30 minutes[1].

The tunnel has proved controversial because of its environmental impact, causing widespread protests. News footage available on YouTube shows serious leaks that existed during the construction, causing disruptions to the water supplies in the area for several days[2][3][4][5]. The journal Environmental Geology published an article about the problems faced during the construction of the tunnel[6].
