Looks awesome. 80 km in 4 years is really impressive.
The trains look excellent too.
Any information on how much this whole expansion costs?

wow, an expansion of over 80km is bigger than most cities' metro systems, and on top of that a refurbishment of the lines! truly amazing. this is truly one of the great metro systems on the planet. i dream of the day santiago de chile's metro is even half that big.

!que viva españa! !que viva el metro de madrid, mi3rda!

What is the T4 line? A tram line?

Line explanations are just on the lower right side of the map. T4 is a provisional name, probably the official name for this line will be "mL4".
But yes, T4 is a light metro line for Parla. It will be a circle line with stops every 500metres aproximately, light metros will circulate separatly from traffic, some stops are elevated and other other ones are underground. Here, there is a link to somo more info about this line, there is a video too: http://www.viaparla.com/

Mistake:
80 kilometres are NOT full metro, more than 50% are tramways!

Mira tio, me tienes hasta... de tus afirmaciones sin tener ni idea, al menos habla con datos en la mano. En todos los foros estas siempre igual. Aunque me parece que lo que no sabes es calcular porcentajes:

MADRID GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL DATA (http://www.madrid.org/cs/Satellite?i...=1114180542739):
FULL METRO: 53,14km------- 65,5%
LIGHT METRO: 27,77km------ 34,5%

Puedo haber cometido un error en el porcentaje, pero lo que quería decir es que no todos los 80,91 km. son "full metro", como tú has dicho. Además, las cifras que pones (56+21,9) suman 77,90 kms., a ver quien no tiene ni idea...

Por cierto:
Modera tu lenguaje.


Mensaje editado pq veo que has modificado las cifras. ¿De qué fuente son?

Impressive. Madrid is the "Dubai" of Europe i think, well at least in building infrastructure. The motorway-ringroads-network around Madrid is huge! I think it is the largest in Europe.

The subway network must be huge. But i heard Madrid and (huge) suburbs are growing fast by immigration from rural Spain.

Now a days, there are no inmigrants from rural Spain, there are a lot of them but from South America, North Africa or East Europe and mostly of them without documents. Just in Madrid in 2005, official inmigrants by countries:
ECUADOR:184.828
ROMANIA:127.028
COLOMBIA:82.955
MARROCO: 82.397
PERU:49.181
BOLIVIA:37.448.

Enhorabuena Torke por este hilo que has abierto. Contribuye a mostrar nuestro Metro -del que nos podemos sentir orgullosos- al mundo, e -indirectamente- también sirve de muestra de lo que es Madrid. Contribuciones como esta harán que Madrid sea más valorada por quienes se asomen a este foro. Muchas gracias por ello. Realmente un buen trabajo.
