On the 19th December 2010 the new high speed line between Perpignan and Figueres in Cataluña, Spain, will open, offering travellers a new way to travel from the UK to Spain!
In total, 44km of high speed track has been built between Perpignan and Figueres, and a new tunnel - the Perthus Tunnel - has been constructed in order to allow high speed trains to operate between France and Spain. TGVs will run to Figueres Vilafant station, until a brand new station opens in 2012. Buses will run every 15 minutes between Figueres Vilafant station and the town centre. Passengers travelling onwards to Girona or Barcelona can pick up an onwards train from Vilafant station – it’s just a simple platform change!
Tickets are now on sale for travel from 19th December 2010.
