In 2003 the Governments of Spain and Portugal signed an agreement at the Iberian Summit in Figueira da Foz, later ratified in 2004 by the Parliament and the European Commission, in which they undertook to connect Lisbon / Sines with Madrid through a new Line Railways for goods that came into operation in 2008 and through a High-Speed ​​Line for passengers that entered service in 2010, and that both lines were part of the basic trans-European transport network (TEN-T)

In the absence of initial agreements between the two States, and of these with the European Union, for various reasons and for prioritizing other objectives, there can no longer be justifications for this connection not being a priority for the two States, generating this delay important damages for all Portugal and Spain, but also for the entire European Network.

We demand that the Governments and Parliaments of the two States prioritize this connection between the two Iberian capitals and that all necessary decisions are made so that the following roadmap can be met:

2021: Lisbon-Madrid railway connection through Caya.

2025: Complete electrified rail connection between Lisbon-Madrid.

2028: Lisbon-Madrid High Speed ​​Connection.

We consider that Spain and Portugal need to improve their relations and mutual trust and that, connected, cooperating and uniting wills before the European Union and the World, we can be stronger to face the challenges and the many uncertainties that must be overcome in a hyperconnected and global scenario. .

We urge the Governments of Spain and Portugal, and the European Union, to carry out all the necessary actions in order to comply with this roadmap to fully operationalize the SOUTHWEST IBERIAN CORRIDOR of goods and passengers with the utmost urgency to promote the transformation of This space between the two Iberian capitals as a new axis of European development.
