Preparatory works for the implementation of the connection between the third Tagus crossing and the Oriente-Lisbon station


This Action consists ofpreparatory works on the Belt and Northern railway lines between Areeiro and Sacavém in the Lisbon urban area. They are required due to the reformulation of the existing railway layout.


The works will contribute to the implementation of Priority Project 3 (high speed railway axis of southwest Europe), in particular facilitating the connection between the third Tagus river crossing and the Oriente railway station in Lisbon.


By bringing forward the works included in the Action, the constraints to rail traffic caused by the construction of the high speedline in Lisbon will be minimised.
