Activities by year

Activities in 2019: The International Section offers significant travel times reductions between Spain and France, while offering a permanent solution to previous travel disruptions on the existing conventional railway networks of the two countries. To date, it is the best solution for trains’ passing between the two countries from both economical and operational points of view. Having a capacity of more than 100 trains per day, the alignment has been designed for a 350 km/h operation speed for passengers’ trains and 120 km/h operation speed for freight trains. The line is mixed-traffic, allowing the simultaneous traffic and crossing of high-speed trains travelling at 300 km/h, regional trains travelling between 160 and 250 km/h and freight trains travelling at 100 km/h with no restrictions. Freight trains up to 750 m are authorized, and even up to 850 m if necessary while the maximum authorized axle load is 22,5 t/axle.


Certifications Quality and Environment: In addition to a Safety Authorisation provided by the National Safety Authorities, AESF in Spain and EPSF in France, LFP implements an Integrated Management System (IMS). The system responds to all relevant standards’ requirements: ISO 9001 version 2008, ISO 14 001 version 2004, ISO 45001 version 2018, in addition to the railway safety management system. The IMS enables the Infrastructure Manager to optimize the processes in order to improve the fulfilment of all legal and contractual obligations.
