I'm afraid you are counting some tramway lines (light metro)...

Are you sure all that is full metro?

Thanks for answering!

Bitxo, light metro has not opened yet. SpastiK has not counted it. Besides, he talks about full metro.

This is the evolution in the last 8 mounths:



As you can see, Madrid Metro Network has increased in 55,7km.

Impresive figure if we compare it with the last 2 plans:

1995-1999: 56km
1999-2003: 54,5km
2003-2007: 55,7km

Total Metro expand in 12 years: 166,2km of new full Metro!

Tramway line A (or 1?) is 70% underground, if the vehicles used are tramways! Total lenght of the line is about...6 to 8 km, I think...

Congratulations for you Madrileños on the beautiful subway. I'm green with envy.

Just curious, how do you guys pay for this ambitious project while at the same time doing the expansion of M-30?

jaja, nobody knows...

But, M30 is going to be paid by de city council.
Metro is going to be paid by Regional Goverment, using several "financial techniques", but given to private corporation a big role on it

Would the Spanish please invade Britain, and sort out our public transport for us? Very depressing when you compare public transport in cities such as Barcelona to Birmingham and Manchester.

Been staying in Sevilla for three months, very impressed with the opening of the tram, and construction of the underground there, along with the efficient buses. Also very impressive AVE to Madrid.

Madrid underground worked well too, fully operational on the Los Reyes / King's Day too, which I was impressed with! Only complaint was the litter in stations due to the strike, has this been resovled?

Also the stations on line 1 seemed a bit shabby, and the trains a bit small, is anything been done about this? Otherwise great system!

No litter anymore as the strike is over. I wouldn't say the problem was "resovled" though, they just surredered to the wildcat strike.

Now the subway is rather clean again, hope you can check it with your own eyes soon. Our subway system is indeed something we are pretty proud of, and still growing like crazy.

I'm so shocked by how cheap this expansion is: 4bn Euros is cheap even for a country that is not the UK... has the EU provided some money to help build this?

The EU does not provides funds to wealthy NUTSII regions of the EU. Madrid (Comunidad de) is about 25-30% above the EU27 average of GDP. The only recent EU-funded expansion of the system happened over 10 years ago (L8 from Madrid-Barajas International to the Financial District/Nuevos Ministerios).

Remember that with a population of about 6.000.000, the Madrid Region has an economy larger than 12 EU states, and if it were its own country would be just behind Finland just in front of Portugal.

In regards to costs, I think that advantageous legislation as well as a policy of building continuously helps. Machines don't lay idle and allow for rapid progress. I think that unlike in a country like the UK, 10 m below the surface is declared to be public land. Therefore, there are no costly compensations.

Does anyone have any current statistics and future plans handy?

I would be interested in seeing what we can expect from Madrid in the next few years.
