The Portugal rail map shows all the railway stations and lines of Portugal trains. This train map of Portugal will allow you to easily travel by train in showing the major rail routes and high speed rail routes of Portugal in Europe. The Portugal rail map is downloadable in PDF, printable and free.
The railway sector represents approximately 42% of the total investment estimated for 2014-2020, thus recognising that important railway sector constraints still remain despite the significant development of transport infrastructures undertaken in the past decades, mostly in the road sector (see Portugal rail map). The Portuguese railway network aims to become totally electrified with 25 kV tension and equipped with control-command and signalling systems according to the European standards (ERTMS/ETCS), with the main freight corridors made interoperable and prepared for the operation of 750 metre-long trains, carrying 1,400 tonne loads in simple traction.
Among the main railway projects are the connections to the border with Spain, namely the modernisation of the Minho Line (Porto-Valença), the Porto/Aveiro-Vilar Formoso connection (through the Beira Alta Line as its mentioned in Portugal rail map) and the Sines/Setúbal/Lisboa-Caia connection, which will contribute to the country international connectivity and the promotion of interoperability. Work will be undertaken to eliminate constraints in the infrastructure of the Beira Alta Line, and a wye will be built between this line and the Northern Line as a means of guaranteeing the direct circulation of traffic with origin/destination to the north of Pampilhosa Station. The work, which will ensure railway interoperability of the corridor at national, Iberian and European levels, will be undertaken in conjunction with Spain.
The main rail network in Portugal is made up of the following regional trains and intercity trains as you can see in Portugal rail map: Regional and inter-regional trains are used for short distances and make frequent stops. They complement the long distances services, connecting regional destinations with the larger cities, such as Lisbon and Porto.
