On Wednesday, the Governing Council of the Community of Madrid authorised the public tender of the contract for the preparation of an economic feasibility study for its ‘Ciudad de la Justicia’ project. The idea, as detailed by the region’s president, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, “is to start early, so that construction can begin in the middle of this legislature and be completed during the next one.”

The facilities will be located in the new neighbourhood of Valdebebas, on plots adjacent to the Institute of Legal Medicine, which is the only building that has been built so far from this project to concentrate numerous judicial headquarters into a single location. Various PP governments of the Community of Madrid have worked on the project, which is located next to the new Hospital Enfermera Isabel Zendal and alongside the Ifema exhibition grounds and Adolfo Suárez-Madrid Barajas airport.
