The AMAlentejo Boosting Committee delivered over 4,300 signatures in parliament, paving the way for the public petition for the electrification and modernization of the Alentejo Line to be discussed in plenary.
Urgent hearings will also be requested from the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, and Prime Minister António Costa.
“The electrification and modernization of the Alentejo Line does not need further studies, but rather to use existing studies and advance with the applications and execution of the work. The problem here is not technical, but political, ”the association points out.
The AMAlentejo Dynamizing Commission considers that the postponement of the project is “a very serious damage to the country”.
