The project involves the works regarding two regional rail links, the existing C-2 Line and the new C-5 Line, the latter of which will use part of the former and part of the Seville-Huelva line to connect the centre of Seville with the Aljarafe Norte region before terminating in Benacazón.

The project fort the C-2 Line to La Cartuja consists of converting the stretch of line between Santa Justa and La Cartuja into an electrified two-way signalled Iberian gauge section with traffic priority at all possible connection points. To achieve this objective it is necessary to lay a second track within a section measuring some 1,400 metres and to upgrade and change the gauge of one track within a section that is around 5,000 metres long. As for stations, the line will have three, a new one in San Jerónimo plus the stations of Estadio Olímpico (the only one currently in service) and La Cartuja, both of which will be redeveloped.

The new C-5 Line of Seville Local Railway Network, which connects this city with Benacazón, will provide regional rail services using the existing Seville-Huelva line. This new 32-kilometre line of Iberian gauge track will serve six regional stations of which 4 are completely new (Camas, Valencina-Santiponce, Salteras and Benacazón) and 2 are full refurbishments of existing station buildings and infrastructures (Villanueva del Ariscal-Olivares and Sanlúcar la Mayor).

Eptisa has drawn up the detailed design for the Spanish Railway Infrastructures Authority (ADIF) in its entirety, including everything from the track superstructure to the electricity power supply, the safety and communications installations, trackside buildings, urban development and access routes from the different municipalities served by the line. Eptisa is also responsible for undertake the quality control of the works carried out.
