The railway sector is one of the most dynamic transport sectors thanks to public investment in this area. These investments have funded projects aimed at increasing speed, extending networks, removing level crossings, rehabilitating and improving infrastructure and, especially, new high-speed lines and the expansion of metro lines in major cities.

RRC has completed many different types of railway works throughout its history, ranging from railway lines to underground and new above-ground metro lines, whilst carrying out maintenance and renovation works on existing lines and constructing new stations and stops.
