El AVE: una productividad precaria

  • Hacer un AVE de ancho internacional fue, se ve a la larga, un despropósito. Quizá especialmente por la obra nueva en la ciudad.
  • Hacer un AVE de Antequera Málaga fue un despropósito
  • Tratar de hacer un AVE a Galicia y montañas similares es un despropósito
  • Tratar de hacer un AVE de Sevilla a Antequera es un despropósito
  • Trazar un AVE por donde circula un tren de vía única y quizá no electrificado es un despropósito.
  • La Costa del Sol es muy jodida, poblada y montañosa. ¿Es apta para trenes de mercancías? Aparentemente tanto como un transcantábrico de mercancías.
  • No acabo de entender el interés en conectar puertos marítimos por tren. Ya están conectados por agua
  • Dicen que Blanco dijo ayer que a partir de ahora la obra pública se hará con criterios racionales.
  • Se echa en falta un análisis demográfico/orográfico comparado de Francia y España.
  • Obama visitó España y se interesó por nuestra red de AVE. Orgullo nacional y envidia del mundo mundial. Blanco, más o menos, dixit.
