Madrid-Antequera-Granada high-speed train opens
25 June 2019 @ 23:50

A BRAND-NEW high-speed AVE train has finally opened after over 20 years of delays, and acting president Pedro Sánchez cut the red tape on it today (Tuesday).

The AVE links up Granada with Madrid, about a seven-hour journey by car, but which takes just three hours on the express train.

It will also stop off in Antequera (Málaga province) en route.

The first-ever Madrid-Granada AVE left the former's Atocha station at 09.15 today and reached Antequera's Santa Ana station at 11.27 as scheduled, then was due to arrive in Granada, 122 kilometres further east, at 12.36.

This means a time saving of 50 minutes on the current system, which involves a s30lower, regional train followed by a bus link.
