They are between Antequera and Granada, but they aren't between Seville and Antequera.

What is the current plan on joining Valladolid-Burgos line with Basque Y between Burgos and Vitoria? A brand new line, upgrade of the current one or perhaps just double gauging the existing route?

There is no official plan by now.

Furthermore the Estepar tunnel construction on the HSL Valladolid-Burgos has been stopped this week because of administrative issues ( don't ask, nobody knows... ). Anyway, the solution for Burgos-Vitoria won't arrive before the opening of the Basque Y and the HSL Valladolid-Burgos, but by now, the dual gauge track on the current line between Burgos and Vitoria via Miranda seems to be the most feasible option. In the long term, a new HSL line would be the optimal choice.

Valladolid-Venta de Baños-Burgos/Palencia HSL.

Scheme envisaged at Valladolid.

Left, Valladolid-Campo Grande station (towards Madrid). Right, towards Venta de Baños.
Red is for Iberian gauge. Blue for standard gauge (the HSL).

Definitive situation (no date yet). Note that the Valladolid gauge changer disappears:

There will be three new gauge changers, one at Palencia and two at Leon, and the current gauge changer at Valladolid-Campo Grande will disappear (only the ones at Valdestillas and Medina del Campo will be left in the Valladolid area).

Venta de Baños-Burgos is far less advanced, it couldn´t be realy next year at all, there´s a missing tunnel yet!

The section Valencia-Xativa-La Encina junction (near Villena) is rather advanced, although I´m not so sure it would open by 2015.

The section between La Encina junction and Alicante is already open as part of the Madrid-Alicante HSL.

In fact, the section Xativa -La Encina is now under construction of catenary infrastructure and railway suprestructure. This stage, affecting to the renewed iberian gaugue old line, must be done and put in service, before it could be changed the existing section in iberian gauge (250 km/h speed) and 3kv, to international gauge and, perhaps, 25kV

What he means is that the old classic line between Xativa and La Encina is being reconstructed between Moixent and La Encina and it will be reopened in Iberian gauge, and the platform of the classic line between L´Alcudia de Crespins and Moixent is being reconstructed to adapt it for a possible future double-tracking.
The tension used will be 3 kV. It´s rather advanced now (they´re laying the tracks and electrification poles), but it´s not advancing all that fast.

While the HSL, already in use between Xativa and La Encina but in Iberian gauge and 3 kV, once this above opens, will be regauged to standard and reelectrified from 3 kV to 25 kV, and will allow speeds up to 250 km/h.

The section between Valencia and Xativa will be able for speeds up to 300 km/h and is entirely new.
The electrification and signalling is not advanced between Valencia and Xativa, but the tracks are finished, and the upgrade of Xativa station is very advanced too.

Xativa will be the only intermediary station on the HSL, correct?

That means trains to Burgos will have to change gauge at Valdestillas instead of Campo Grande?

Correct, they will change at Valdestillas (some already do now in case of trouble -delay, etc), but in case of trouble the gauge changer at Medina del Campo could also be used.
