Infraestruturas de Portugal (IP) celebrates the 2021 European Year of Rail with EIM with a series of 5 videos about its contribution to the success of the Portuguese “Ferrovia 2020” Investment Plan, a modernisation plan of more than 1000 km of Portuguese rail lines
Today we talk about:
IP investment on Minho Line (chapter 4)
This line serves the north-western region of the country, which is considered to be the birth place of the Portuguese nationality, a land filled with natural beauty, where you can find the Peneda-Geres National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
As for the other lines of its network, IP is conducting here a comprehensive programme, which includes the modernisation and electrification of the Nine – Viana do Castelo section.
By doing so, IP is promoting the mobility and economic development of this region and encouraging trade and social movements between the North of Portugal and the neighbouring Spanish Province of Galicia.
If you are willing to explore this extraordinary Portuguese region and to learn more about the rail investments in the area, just watch the following video 👉 https://vimeo.com/535805609
