quote from the latin forum about the new chinese stock that's arriving Buenos Aires late this month

Quote:

Shanghai, China
China-Subway Export
Feb 1, 2012

http://202.108.9.138/news.jsp?fileId=130226

Two subway trains will be handed over to its client in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in mid February
They are among the subway products contracted by the China Northern Locomotive and Rolling Stock Industry Corporation (China CNR Corporation) and manufactured by the Shanghai Development Corporation of Rail Transit Equipment.

Most of the export products were finished and debugged by manufacturer by the beginning of the Year of Dragon.
This is the first time for Chinese subway products to enter the market in South America.

The two trains bright in color have relevant signs and equipment already fixed and are in good shape for running.
"The market of South America is mainly the market for European products. This time the China CNR Corporation gained a breakthrough in Argentina with a historic meaning of great importance," said Shi Bin from Shanghai Development Corporation of Rail Transit Equipment.

Because of the complexity of Buenos Aires' terrain and subway lines, the turn radius of all subway trains are required to be under 25 meters as against the standard turn radius of 80 meters.
"The turn radius become shorter, so the radian and curvature become greater, and the demand for linking becomes rigorous," said Shi Bin.
In spite of this rigorous demand, the Shanghai company achieved its goal beautifully.

It is said that another seven trains of 35 cars will be handed over before April. According to the contract, Shanghai still need to manufacture 21 trains of 105 cars and preparation work for the task is already underway.

los nuevos subtes, llegan 2 en febrero 7 en abril y u par mas en la segunda mitad del año, son 30 formaciones de 5 coches para renovar la Linea A.

2) our city Mayor has a dreadfull pro BRT policies and doesn't give a **** to the underground transit system. (he promised 40km during capaing ad hasent even finished those that the previous administration had started) yet thoreticaly whitin the nexts month the stations should be opened.

3) A & B (4 stations) this year. H(1 station) late 2012. E(3 stations) late 2013 H(6stations) 5 years from now or more.

4) no (thanks useless mayor)

5)Yes

6) for now it will, yet if buenos aires wants to have a better transport system new lines are not required but to integrate and upgrade the Commuter line with the subway and try to copy a RER system, that wolud be the ultimate solution to the transit system in the city.
This is the common problem of developing countries. My country India is although a bit better. Here many subway systems are under construction, and 3 systems are already running.

The BRT will use existing road, and despite reserved lane, it is a road vehicle, so will use petrol/diesel, and which will more pollute the air of the city.

Trolleybus is far better. The cost of trolleybus & BRT is almost same. It will be better to switch to trolleybus, rather than making BRT.

Despite 5 metro lines, and a good suburban rail network, Buenos Aires needs those 3 metro lines to fulfil the future inner-city transport demand. Metro will run underground, so although it will be costly, but this is the ultimate solution. I don’t know how much Argentina is disciplined like Japan & South Korea, but if they not; an RER like reciprocal service will not be succeeded. But it is truly shamed that there are almost half of the suburban rail network is un-electrified.

Lastly, it is true that if they completely electrify all suburban rail lines, more frequent local train service could be introduced, and then the transportation problem will be quite solved with the addition of current light rail, metro & (unconnected!!!) tram system.

First I will post something from the ARG formu, extension of the H line estacion Hospitales (southern Buenos Aires)

Quote:
From FacundoC


















it's remarkable that this station was built in an area that has a horrible muddy ground, not good at all for building underground metro, but an effort was made to keep al the BA network underground otherwise it would have ruined the neighborhood view.
so a method that emulates a concrete submarine was used, so the station is literally a Box of concrete.

Buenos Aires Line H extension groundbreaking
19 February 2012

ARGENTINA: A groundbreaking ceremony attended by Buenos Aires Major Mauricio Macri on January 17 marked the start of work on two extensions of Line H totalling 4 km, which will add six more stations.

The 5∙5 km orbital line is to be extended north from Corrientes to Plaza Francia, serving intermediate stations at Córdoba, Santa Fe and Las Heras. The southern extension from Hospitales would add stations at Pompeya and Sáenz. Work is expected to be completed by 2015, when the line is expected to be carrying 300 000 passengers a year.

The extensions are being built by a joint venture of Techint and Dycasa under a 2227m pesos contract awarded in September 2011. No decision has yet been made on an 800m pesos contract to supply 102 new air-conditioned cars to operate Line H.

Meanwhile, work is nearing completion on two other short extensions, taking Line A from Carabono to San José de Flores and San Pedrito, and Line B from Los Incas to Echeverría and Juan Manuel de Rosas. Both are around 2 km long, and expected to be completed during the first half of 2012.

Both the incident today and the one in September 2011 (rail-bus-rail collision) occurred on commuter rail. Subte (metro) is completely underground.

I am an engineering student here in Brazil, and I really want to visit Buenos Aires to see structures of the last century, and I will certainly visit their subway system, so I promise to get a clearance to land on the largest city in Argentina.
Questions about the system:
- How many km is the current system?
-How many km are in the works?
- How many compositions in the entire system?
- How many cars have each composition?
- What gauge of the rails of the subway system? Here São Paulo City is used in the 1435mm (lines 4, 5) and 1.6mm (lines 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12)
- Is there a specific twread on the subway in Buenos Aires?

Hugs hermanos. Sorry do not speak Spanish and have to use English ...
