Few double track railroads (20%) and very limited speed. Airport network development needed to meet the tourism boom. Low quality urban transport. SPAIN TODAY 100% of the EU average Infrastructure level mi highway network, one of the largest in Europe. The largest high-speed railroad network: mi in operation and in study, design or construction. Airport capacity increased to handle up to 300M passengers/year Port capacity increased to handle the growth of the cargo traffic. Valencia and Algeciras are among the 10 largest ports in Europe.
