Rounds

Inner round (VA-20)

It is the inner round of Valladolid. It is divided into two sections, depending on the administration that owns them:

  • The eastern round, VA-20 , belongs to the Ministry of Development and begins at kilometer 120 of the A-62 and ends at the junction of the Autovía de Pinares (A-601) . It is a road with two lanes in each direction with links at the same level regulated by traffic lights. It has a section limited to 50 km / h, while the rest of the round is limited to 80 km / h.
  • The southern inner ring road, Avenida de Zamora , is an urban avenue belonging to the Valladolid City Council and therefore is one more street in the city, with a speed limitation of 50 km / h. Avenida de Zamora continues to the south to the VA-20, closing the ring road and connecting the A-601 again with the Autovía de Castilla .

Outdoor round (VA-30)

It is the outer round. It starts on the Castilla highway (A-62) , at the height of Cigales and borders the city connected with the different highways that reach Valladolid until it ends again at the A-62 at the height of Arroyo de la Encomienda .

Access roads

A-11

It is the start of the Duero Highway (A-11) from Valladolid to Soria. It involves the doubling of the N-122 from Valladolid to Tudela de Duero, with a speed limitation of 100 km / h. Despite its official name VA-11, it is always marked as A-11 .

N-601

It is the unfolding of the N-601 at the southern entrance to Valladolid. The unfolding begins in Boecillo, at the junction with the CL-600 , and ends at the junction with the south interior ring road (Avenida de Zamora). Despite its official name VA-12 and being a highway, it is always signposted as N-601 .

Roads of interest

A-62

It communicates to the city with Venta de Baños (where a branch leaves towards Palencia and continues towards Burgos) and with Tordesillas (where it connects with the A-6 and A-11). On the Valladolid - Palencia section, it was the first highway to be built near Valladolid. Subsequently, the Valladolid - Tordesillas section was built, and finally a variant was built for this highway that would avoid the passage of traffic through the city. This variant is also known as "West Round".

Currently, it is beginning to suggest the expansion to three lanes between Tordesillas, Valladolid and Venta de Baños due to the increase in traffic.

This highway could serve as a connection for a hypothetical industrial macro-estate located in Cigales.

A-60

The A-60 will be the road that connects Valladolid with León. Part of its importance is that it connects the city with the airport , and will communicate the Tierra de Campos area .

Railways

Station and stops

Rail integration

The route of the railway in Valladolid crosses the city from North to South, the lack of adequate infrastructures to cross it (especially pedestrian) make it an urban barrier. As a solution, its burying was proposed in the 80s, this project has been studied during the 90s until the company Valladolid High Speed ​​was established in 2003, which would be in charge of burying the train (only the international gauge, dismantling the Iberian gauge) passing through the city financing the operation with the sale of land for real estate use.

This operation was unsuccessful with the crisis of 2008, and after carrying out a part of the works such as the platform of the Eastern Variant of Valladolid (except for the viaduct of Los tramposos), the new workshops and the underground as it passed through El Pinar, it was acquired a debt of 405 million Euros. This debt was unsustainable due to the real cost of the burial and the low probability of recovering the money with the sale of land, which is why it was decided to cancel the burial and bet on an integration on the surface through a treatment of edges and the improvement of the permeability, especially pedestrian.

Airport

Valladolid Airport Terminal .

The Valladolid Airport is located in Villanubla , about 10 kilometers west of the city. To get there, you have to take the N-601 or the A-60 .

In 2014 , the Valladolid airport handled 223,587 passengers, 4,388 aircraft movements and 21.7 tons of cargo. [ 1 ] It is ranked 31st in passenger movement within the 49 airports of the AENA network to which it belongs. It has become one of the main passenger hubs in Castilla y León. It was built in 1938 and renovated in 1972 and 2000. It shares the civil airport with a military air base. Its IATA code is VLL and its OACI code is LEVD . He has trips to destinations such as Tenerife , Barcelona , Palma de Mallorca ,Gran Canaria , Lanzarote and Seville .

Canal de Castilla Port

Dock of the Canal de Castilla in Valladolid . The idea of ​​this canal was to serve as a means of communication and transport that would solve the problem of isolation suffered by the Castilian plateau, due to the complicated relief and a deficient road network, which made it almost impossible to transport the agricultural products of the region.

The Canal de Castilla dock in Valladolid , completed in 1835, served to raise the ground flour in Valladolid to the Cantabrian coast, to sell part of it in Santander and the rest, export it from its port to all of Europe. With the appearance of the railway a few decades later, it lost its importance until in the middle of the 20th century it was completely no longer used in the industrial field and now its use is mainly tourist, ecological and recreational.

Dry port

The construction of a dry port linked to the port of Santander ( Cantabria ) is being planned, which will specialize in the agri-food and automotive sectors in a 270-hectare polygon in Valladolid. [ 2 ] [ 3 ] [ 4 ] [ 5 ]
