On 15 November 2005, the Madrid-Toledo high-speed line was inaugurated, the third of its kind to come into operation in Spain, after the Madrid-Seville and Madrid-Lleida lines.
75 km in 33 minutes.
The route between Madrid and Toledo runs along the Madrid-Seville high-speed line, up to km 54 in the municipality of La Sagra.
This new 20.5-kilometre-long railway access links to the capital of La Mancha. The journey time between the two cities is 33 minutes.
A spectacular 1,602 m-long viaduct over the Tajo River and Valdecaba Stream leads to the second subsection (Mocejón-Toledo).
Another important structure is the pergola over the Madrid - Seville high-speed line, which is built to enable the left track of the new Toledo rail access to join the right track, after which they each continue on their own track-bed.
Declared an Asset of Cultural Interest with the category of Monument, Toledo Station was designed by the architect Narciso Clavería in the neo-Mudejar style, and was inaugurated in 1919. Its restoration is one of the most unique aspects of the actions that have been carried out in the development of the high-speed link between Madrid and Toledo.
For its refurbishment, it was necessary to adapt the whole area and its different elements to the needs and features required by a commercial station on a high-speed line. Among other services, customers will have be able to use an open-air, asphalted and well-lit car park with a surface area of 7,500 square metres and 325 parking spaces.
