Barcelona (ACN).- 1 million passengers are expected to use the new direct High-Speed Train between Barcelona and Paris within the next year. The Spanish Transport Minister Ana Pastor, her French counterpart Frédéric Cuvillier and the Catalan Minister for Planning and Sustainability Santi Vila, have described the High-Speed connection as a “milestone” that will further develop the bond between states.

“The Pyrenees are no longer an obstacle” stated Ana Pastor, while Frédéric Cuvillier welcomed these new connections as the best way to improve citizen mobility. In this sense, the Spanish and French Governments indicated that building the new railway had been a “long and costly” process, before confirming that the service provided is “fast and safe”.
