Europe’s £8,100,000,000 high-speed train that shames UK public transport

Europe’s £8,100,000,000 high-speed train that shames UK public transport A luxury high-speed train between two major European cities has put the UK’s creaking rail network to shame. The £8.1billion line linking Barcelona and Madrid allows passengers to whizz the 385-mile distance in just two and a half hours. The new leg, connecting the Catalonian capital with Madrid, launched in February 2008 after five years of construction on existing tracks, which are compatible with those in neighbouring France. And it’s proven popular ever since, carrying 4.4million passengers in 2019 alone (Picture: Natalia de la Rubia/Getty)
