Huelva and Seville are strongly promoting the possible connection with Portugal’s city of Faro


Spanish cities Huelva and Sevilla joined forces to promote Andalucia-Algarve High-Speed ​​train to Faro in Portugal.

Mayor of Huelva Gabriel Cruz and mayor of Seville Juan Espadas are urging the regional government to request the inclusion of the line Sevilla-Huelva-Faro in the Next Generation European funds so that this infrastructure becomes a reality in the shortest possible time.

Mayor of Seville Juan Espadas said: “European funds will enable important public investments in infrastructure that is essential for economic development and recovery. One of these strategic moves is the connection of the Sevilla-Huelva-Faro AVE train, which is a key project for the connection of three cities that have common interests, two important airports such as Faro and Sevilla, for the business sector of Andalucia and Portugal and for new industrial development and technological innovation projects and for our tourism strategy.”

The president of the Sevilla Employers’ Confederation (CES), Miguel Rus, stated: “This is a strategic infrastructure for the whole southern Europe. We have to go one step further and join synergies with Portugal. This terrible crisis that we are experiencing is only going to accentuate the great deficiencies in infrastructure and mobility that we have. We have to advance the cross-border cooperation as one more tool to get out of this crisis as soon as possible”.
