Nuevo enlace ferrovial interprovincial Santa Fe-Entre Ríos. Una oportunidad de escala regional.

Abstract : The province of Santa Fe, Argentina, is located in a strategic area conformed by key factors: the potential of Paraná-Paraguay Waterway, the bi-oceanic road corridors and the existing network of railway lines. This set generates a dynamic integration considering economic, social cultural and political spheres, oriented to the own territory but also in relation to other provinces and beyond national borders. The capital region, who has a core given by Santa Fe city, is characterized by dynamic factors: risk of flooding, intensification of economic flows, demographic concentration processes and growing interdependence among Santa Fe and Paraná (city capitals of Santa Fe and Entre Rios provinces), populations that are involved in a progressive metropolitan binuclear process. These factors, in addition to the real scenario about few spatial connections through Paraná River system, have installed the need of built a new interprovincial link adapted to a railway reactivation hypothesis. The project is in preliminary stage. The main issue is the decision of its specific location that must consider the transformative effect of a big edification like this, related to the natural platform and the system of human settlements. Also, their territorial scopes and the potential impact on micro, middle and macro scale. The purpose of the research is to describe the dimensions involved by the project (technical, social, economic, environmental, mobility), to discover the more auspicious stage and/or the less adverse scenario, considering all the proposals for project locating that are currently under discussion. The result is an analytical structure based on quantitative and qualitative rates, which allows a comprehensive assessment of the proposals considering for each one the impact on natural platform and their abilities to reverse the current territorial issues. Also, this process can do visible the capabilities of each proposal to generate new lines of development or enhancing the existing ones in the region. We conclude that multidimensional analysis in a preliminary phase like this are useful to bring up for discussion, previous to begin feasibility and viability technical studies, because allow an integral
