Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A sixth European high-speed line was supposed to enter service in 2009, but didn't, despite being finished: Figueres-Perpignan, the international line crossing the Spanish/French border across the 8,403 m Perthus Tunnel.


Now, the Figueres-Perpignan line was supposed to finally link up Spain's normal-gauge high-speed network with France's normal-gauge network. However, presently it is a track to nowhere. Literally.

So, is it finished or not?
