Beautiful Portugal.

On the other hand, any news of Évora-Elvas?

ps: looks like very soon there will be news on Salamanca-Vilar Formoso on the Spanish side (how soon? can't say, but rumours are increasing).

Not real facts. In January a portuguese newspaper released a news that was a bit confusing [news in portuguese].

Summing up: new line conecting Aveiro Harbour/North Line » Viseu » Vila Franca das Neves (110 Km) where it will intersect on the existing Beira Alta Line, and with a cost of 1,4 MM€/1,9MM€.

Still nothing is certain at the moment!!

Real plans, only for the Minho Line, between Nine and Valença do Minho (90 Km) [2016-2019]. Construction as not yet started.


At (very) long term, there is the idea to expand the electrification on the Douro Line between Caíde and Peso da Régua.
