NEWS


A news came this week on a portuguese newspaper about a new line for High Speed Trains and for freight with 1435mm gauge, but it was the only news reported and it was very confusing, because the Portuguese government seem to forced the local authorities not to say anything, and because Portugal is entering a phase of electoral year, this can be nothing more that a news of the electoral silly season that appears 4 in 4 years.

So it goes:



Train returns to Viseu

The train will re-circulate in the Vouga Valley, making the connection between the Aveiro Harbour, Viseu and Vila Franca of Naves, which fit in the Beira Alta Line, then to Spain. The decision is made and the solution found to be below € 1.4 billion will be a reality. The Government is negotiating a solution with the European Union (EU) and imposed silence to business associations.


Policymakers heard by SOL consider that the new connection is a requirement for the northwest peninsular do not be isolated.


The connection that the government negotiates with the EU takes over the project in 2009, the designated Lot 4A section - between Aveiro and Celorico da Beira, agreed with Spain. It will be on European gauge and connect the northwest peninsular, by connecting the Northern Line to Salamanca, included in the trans-European networks. The crossing of the border north of Vilar Formoso enables the connection in just over 130 km, which fits the predictable budgets.


The section will have a length of 110 km, passing through Viseu. The cost per kilometer of points for 10 million euros and involves 60 km of single track.


As for financing, the final value is yet to be defined. A study of Labour Central and Northern Group, which brings together business associations of Portugal, Minho and Center points to an investment of 1.9 billion euros, a figure "unacceptable because it amounts to the money that the country has for investment Total in railway, "maintains a policy-maker heard by SOL.
