AVE ['a£e] nm (abrev de Alta Velocidad Española)
= Spanish high-speed train
AVE
The AVE is Spain's most modern train, and is designed to travel at speeds of over 300Km/h. It is a development of the French TGV, and Spanish, German and French companies are involved in its manufacture. It runs on a separate track from ordinary Spanish rolling stock, as the latter has a wider gauge than the European standard of the AVE track. The first AVE line was opened from Madrid to Seville to coincide with the Expo '92 in the latter city. The final section of the line from Madrid to Barcelona is under construction, and this will eventually extend to the French border. Further lines are being built and eventually it is intended that a single high-speed network will connect the cities of the Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts via Madrid. These projects have given rise to a certain amount of controversy, and some have encountered problems, whether due to technical, geological or human factors.
