A new report on crossbordering limitations in UIC gauge rail connection sees the light

The CLYMA project has just published a new report on the current state of existing limitations in UIC gauge rail connection through the Pyrenees, an area with specific crossbordering handicaps due to the different gauge rail existing in Spain and France. The document tries to expose the current situation of the rail connection for freight transport in Standard European gauge (UIC) through Le Perthus tunnel between both countries, based on the information available at the date hereof. The infrastructure is operational from December 2010 and, after 5 years, rail traffic across this new line is much lower than expected, what makes an analysis in depth of the situation specially valuable.
