Madrid - Valencia, Spain

"The train is taking Madrid to the coast”, is how Spain‘s Minister of Transport, José Blanco, summarises the advantages of the new high speed line. Up to now, the trains between Madrid and the Mediterranean metropolis of Valencia were on the rails for some 3 hours and 25 minutes. Approximately 390 kilometres long, the newly built line allows a top speed of 330 km/h. This more than halves the journey time of the Spanish high speed trains. In the long term, the link is intended to replace half the flights and a quarter of the road traffic between the capital city of Madrid and Valencia. King Juan Carlos and his wife Sofia opened the high speed line on 18 December 2010.

The line includes 79 bridges, 50 tunnels and 6 stations
