Abstract

This report maps the development of new and/or external stations for high-speed (HS) rail in France and Spain. The reasons for building new stations are discussed as well as the ambitions for the development of new economic activities around new stations. Present passenger numbers are presented but previous forecasts were not available. The academic debate in France and Spain concerning station is also briefly presented. The wider development of areas around new stations depends on the general economic developments, new stations as such do not create positive developments. The provision of Public Transport and parking at HS stations is also discussed. The report will hopefully contribute to the debate and planning process connected with the planning of HS-lines in Sweden.
