The new interoperable line will allow the movement of 740m freight trains and will be designed for high-speed (over 250 km/h)"
.

Hence, why did you write it was "for freight only"?

Because according to the portuguese goverment and the portuguese national infrastructure company this line will be for freight trains!!


The forumers on the poruguese SSC suspect that in the distant future the HSL (Lisbon»Évora»Madrid) will pass alongside this line (HSL plan of 2008 that consist on 2 HS lines a 1 line with iberian gauge for freight).

Yeah, I've almost forgotten this quite complicated gauge issue. Would be regrettable not to have the Portuguese high-speed done to complement the Spanish part. After the AVE arrives to Badajoz, even changing trains there could be competitive in terms of total travel time, I guess.
