Infraestructuras de Portugal is successfully contributing to the goal of the Portuguese “Ferrovia 2020” Investment Plan.
With an overall investment of more than € 2000 million, the Plan envisages the modernisation of more than 1000 km of rail lines, covering the main links to Spain and Europe: Aveiro-Salamanca and Sines/Lisbon-Madrid, the modernisation of part of the Lisbon-Porto North Line and the electrification of over 400 km of existing li nes.
These investments also include the beginning of the installation of the European Railway Traffic Management System (ERTMS / ETCS), the extension of several train crossing sections, allowing the freight trains with a maximum length of 750m, as well as the preparation for a future migration from the Iberian gauge to the European standard gauge.
After 5 years, nearly 80% of the investment initially foreseen is under construction or has already been concluded, with € 1,010 million contracted.
