Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
  1. Checking with Eurostat, cars per 1,000 inhabitants, 2006: Portugal is only 405 (Luxembourg: 656, Italy: 597, Germany: 566); motorways: per capita it seems really high per capita, on a quick head calculation only Spain and Sweden seem to match Portugal, but the Netherlands well exceeds them.

  2. Yes, the hgh-speed trains will mostly compete with air traffic only.

  3. That's good to hear. Still, won't those result in large lakes which even drown forests, i.e. would a larger number of smaller dams on tributaries further up in the mountains not be a better solution?
