The line between Lisboa-Caia (Portuguese border) [203 Km] is being built in two phases, the first phase between Caia-Poceirão (near Lisboa) was to being built to 350Km/h, but recent news say that it will be built to 250 Km/h and at European Gauge (1435 mm)!!

The second phase [30 Km of line] that basically consists of The Third Lisbon Bridge it will wait for better days!!

It's an ALCO (bombardier built in 1979?) CP1960 series ... the same as all those Indian locos.





But the ride is probably just to "save fuel costs".

Oriente-Lisboa (6km in the city-center direction) = earthworks already complete , bridges and underpasses complete

Lisboa-Barreiro (3rd tagus crossing) = not looking good at all

Barreiro-Poceirão = also not a promissing future

Poceirão-C.Branca-Evora = reopened last month and regular intercity now run at 200km/h (CP5600 locomotives ands conventional coaches)



Section 2: a completely new route needs to be built

Evora-Elvas-Badajoz = they seem to have downscalled (for now) the origina projected from 3 tracks (2x 350km/h HSR uic gauge + 1x freight track with ghangeable gauge sleepers) to an almost identical (in terms of costs) double track with changeable gauge sleepers ...


It is still good enough since less than 1h runtime between Badajoz and Lisboa is achievable even at 250km/h*.



* sidenote: the portuguese catenary allows for a projected upper level speed limit of 250km/h (this because of the need to have those slow running freight trains at 60/80km/h in the same rails) ... and teoretically those sections in which the Alfa Pendular runs at 220/228km/h have that same teoreticall 250km/h limit also ... that 220km/h mark on the maps only happens that the AP is allowed to run at full speed and not the actual speed limit of the route ...
In the portuguese signaling anything above 100km/h is signaled only incab and track speeds are based on the class of the train so those 400+ km of track where the AP runs at 220 (and conventionmal trains at 200) have no current assigned speed limit.
And since most are actually brand new track with XXI century infraestructure one can argue/claim that if someone so desires they could even be put to250/300/350 km/h speeds... but then again ... they serve mostly as freigh routes ... heavy freight routes (most 220km/h sections serve more 2000ton trains than they serve AP services per day).
