EU supports Portuguese public-private partnership on TEN-T infrastructure

Creation date: July 19, 2011

The European Union will fund with €1 million from the TEN-T budget a series of studies designed to support the public-private partnership (PPP) which will be implemented in Portugal to develop the country’s high speed rail network. The studies will hence ultimately contribute towards the realisation of TEN-T Priority Project 3, the “High-speed railway axis of southwest Europe”.


The EU-funded studies to support the PPP implementing the high speed rail network in Portugal are aimed at a faster creation and more efficient management of the works projects to build the rail network.


Submitted as a project under the innovative 2010 TEN-T Annual PPP Call, the studies are an essential element for the realisation of Portugal’s high speed rail network on the following sections:

  • Lisbon-Madrid axisLisbon-Porto axisÉvora-Faro-Huelva axis
  • Once completed, the studies will foster the implementation of the PPPs and positively contribute towards the realisation of this key stretch of rail infrastructure
