The new tunnel will be used by lines C3 and C4 that previously terminated in Atocha. The other lines will continue to use the old tunnel.

A third tunnel will be built for high speed trains between Atocha and Chamartín without intermediate stations.



Before the opening of the new tunnel:

I saw this project being built last year. Madrid truly has one of the most impressive mass transit systems in the world.

Hola al Madrid!
I had been in May last year with the press presentation of Sol station short before opening - it was a big construction site! nice to see this station now open.
it is definitive not the biggest such cavern of the world. Don't forget Paris RER stations Auber, Etoile and NAtion - each of more than 225 m long platforms and the side platforms are of 10-12 m each!

How it is with the orthern acces to Gran Via on which the construction not was started in May 2008?

and is now decided on the cosntruction of the Alonzo Martinez Station? and when it will be build?
see also to the new development plan of Cercanias > 2015 there is a new line planned to intersect!

New Expansion and Improvement Plan

The Public Transit Network Expansion Plan 2007-2011 is part of a long term strategy. The actions scheduled as part of the plan are divided into two transit categories: the conventional metro and the train.

Under the conventional metro category, the plans include the prolongation of lines 2, 9 and 11.

Under the train category, in coordination with the Ministry of Development and as part of the Local Train Infrastructure Plan for Madrid, the new Móstoles-Navalcarnero line will connect to the C-5 local line and there will be two innovative actions involving the shared use of tracks: the new Moncloa line and the alternate Torrejón de Ardoz line which will end at the Chamartín station.

In short, the expansion of the public transit network focuses on the prolongation of metro lines and the construction of kilometres of new train track.

Conventional Metro

Metro de Madrid is 90 years old this year. Since the beginning, in 1919, and particularly in recent years, Metro has been expanding continuously to the point where it now reaches most neighbourhoods in the capital and eleven municipalities in the surrounding metropolitan area of Madrid.

The 2007-2011 expansion reflects the ongoing commitment to this traditional mode of transport, which still offers the original advantages of safety, speed, reliability and comfort. Moreover, with the adaptations and improvements brought about by technological advances the Metro has become an integral part of the daily lives of Madrid’s residents. On this occasion, the Metro is being extended into densely populated communities such as Las Rosas, Mirasierra and La Fortuna in Leganés.

PROLONGATION OF LINE 11 TO LA FORTUNA

DESCRIPTION: Line 11 will be extended from the La Peseta station in Carabanchel Alto to the Cuatro Vientos depot, along with a new station to be built in the La Fortuna neighbourhood of Leganés.
OBJECTIVES: To provide services to the La Fortuna neighbourhood in Leganés.
AREAS SERVED: La Fortuna neighbourhood in the city of Leganés.
POPULATION SERVED: 18,000.
LENGTH: 3.25 km.
COMMENTS: Contract awarded to DRAGADOS, S.A. in March 2007. The project is being financed by FEDER

PROLONGATION OF LINE 2 TO LAS ROSAS


DESCRIPTION: The prolongation will begin at the La Elipa station and end in the vicinity of Paseo de Ginebra near the M40.
OBJECTIVES: To provide service to the Bilbao, Arcos and Las Rosas neighbourhoods, supplementing the coverage offered by Line 7 to provide a fast connection to the city centre.
AREAS SERVED: Ciudad Lineal and San Blas districts of Madrid.
POPULATION SERVED: 65,000
LENGTH: 4.6 km.
COMMENTS: Contract awarded to UTE FCC Construcción-ACCIONA Infraestructuras, S.A. in September 2008.

PROLONGATION OF LINE 9 TO MIRASIERRA

DESCRIPTION: Line 9 will be extended to the north through the Mirasierra neighbourhood, where a new station will be built which will connect to the local train network at an interchange located between the Pitis and Ramón y Cajal stations.
OBJECTIVES: To provide service to the Mirasierra neighbourhood and extend Line 9 to the north in order to connect with the local train.
AREAS SERVED: Fuencarral-El Pardo district and Mirasierra neighbourhood of Madrid.
POPULATION SERVED: 27,500
LENGTH: 3.0 km
COMMENTS: Contract awarded to the FERROVIAL AGROMAN, S.A.- SACYR, S.A.U. joint venture in September 2009.

Train lines

The train is a high capacity mode of transport which is ideal for transporting large numbers of passengers in cars capable of travelling at speed in excess of 100 km/hour which can be integrated with the rest of the conventional, non-international width rail network.

The new lines to be built are part of the actions being coordinated by the Ministry of Development as part of the Local Train Infrastructure Plan for Madrid.

NEW LINE: MÓSTOLES - NAVALCARNERO

DESCRIPTION: The C-5 local line will be prolonged starting from a point near the Retamas station in the direction of downtown Móstoles, where it will connect with Line 12 of the Metro (Metrosur). It will then run through the Móstoles-Logistics Platform slated for future development, continue to run parallel to the A-5 motorway, alongside Parque Coimbra and Xanadú and finally enter Navalcarnero from the north.
OBJECTIVES: To connect Navalcarnero with downtown Móstoles in approximately 15 minutes and with Atocha in 40 minutes. To satisfy the demand generated in recent years as a result of the urban development in both of these cities.
AREAS SERVED: Móstoles, Arroyomolinos and Navalcarnero
POPULATION SERVED: 31,000
ESTIMATED PASSENGERS: 20,000 trips/day
LENGTH: 14.50 km.

NEW LINE: PUENTE DE LOS FRANCESES - MONCLOA

DESCRIPTION: The purpose of this new line is to connect the existing local train infrastructure to Moncloa. It will share the existing local train tracks that run along the A-6 motorway to the vicinity of the Puente de los Franceses, where the track will split and a new underground section will be built that will run underneath the Parque del Oeste to end at the Moncloa interchange.
OBJECTIVES: To equip the train track that runs along the A-6 motorway with a fast and direct connection to the Moncloa interchange in Madrid.
AREAS SERVED: Pozuelo de Alarcón, Majadahonda, Las Rozas, Torrelodones, Collado Villalba.
POPULATION SERVED: 307,000
ESTIMATED PASSENGERS: 20,000 passengers/day
LENGTH: 2.1 km. (new construction).

NEW TORREJÓN DE ARDOZ-MADRID LINE (CHAMARTÍN).

DESCRIPTION: Like the project described above, the line will emerge from the Chamartín station sharing the local rail infrastructure to the vicinity of the M-45 in San Fernando de Henares. There, the track will split and a new underground section will be built which will enter Torrejón de Ardoz in a west to east direction just north of the downtown area, where three new stations will be built. The line will run longitudinally from west to east, ending near the Soto del Henares housing development.
OBJECTIVES: To provide public rail transport between Torrejón de Ardoz and Madrid (Chamartín) which will considerably improve upon the current level of coverage by bringing rail service to the downtown area while blending into the environment by building the lines underground.
AREAS SERVED: Torrejón de Ardoz. Can also be used by residents of Guadalajara, Azuqueca, Alcalá de Henares and San Fernando de Henares to get to Chamartín.
POPULATION SERVED: 100,000
ESTIMATED PASSENGERS: 25,000 passengers/day
LENGTH: 7.5 km. (new construction)
Plan to Improve the existing Metro network for the period 2007–2011

In the coming years Metro de Madrid will allocate 961 million € to the improvement of the existing metro network.

Among others, the following actions will be undertaken:

• Installation of lifts and escalators to improve accessibility in the following stations: Pacífico, Carpetana, Sainz de Baranda and Ópera.

• Improvement of accessibility by gradually removing architectural barriers, laying special floorings and implementing complementary measures.

Serie 3000 trains

The network currently has 432 series 3000 carriages.

The body of the series 3000 units is made of aluminium, including the chassis, and they have three doors on each side for passenger access/exit. These carriages have an interconnecting passageway, for a composition of four or six carriages, depending on the sub-series, which are fully interconnected inside.

The series 3000 units all have air-conditioning and heating and auxiliary systems control equipment, equipment to record safety parameters during operation, and a passenger information system. They also have a video-surveillance system, systems for fire detection and extinction using water mist, as well as a public address system and radiotelephony. Likewise they are equipped with train protection systems (ATP and ATO).

One of the most interesting novelties of the series 3000 carriages (as in the series 9000) is that they have been adapted to provide total accessibility, with the following systems:

-Folding ramps to provide access to wheelchairs on the doors, on both sides, closest to the drivers cabin.
-Automatic opening, in all cases, of the doors with ramps, which unfold automatically.
-Space reserved for wheelchairs, signposted and equipped with safety belt.
-Automatic opening, in all cases, of the other doors of the first carriage, to facilitate access to persons with sight problems.
-Optical and acoustic signals indicating that the doors are open, to permit easier location by persons with sight problems.
-All doors have contrasting colours to the colours around them
-Interior colour contrasts (doors, seats, handrails, etc.).

The series 3000 carriages came into service for passengers on Lines 2, 3, 4 and 11.

Info from manufacturer, CAF:


MADRID METRO S/3000


The new rolling stock of the Madrid Subway for the narrow gauge lines consists of two types of electric units: single voltage with 6 cars for the 1,500 dc voltage, and dual voltage with 4 cars for 600/1,500 dc voltage with full performance for both voltages. The 4 car unit can be extended to 6 cars.

These units are higly motorised: 4 motor cars in the single voltage units and 3 in the dual voltage units. The 3000 units carbody is constructed with large extruded sections of light aluminium alloy.

The passage between cars is unobstructed, with no doors, with a wide gangway which provides the unit with passage continuity and passenger safety.
3-phase traction equipment is used, which is directly supplied from the network, with the most modern power electronics technology, using IGBT type components.
There are two types of bogies: Motor and trailer. The first ones are each equipped with two 3-phase asynchronous motors.

The units are equipped with an electric brake and pneumatic brake by means of a disc. Access is via three wide double doors on the sides of each car, and in two of these in the end cars there is an access ramp for persons with reduced mobility.
The cars are air conditioned and equipped with the most modern comfort systems (soundproof wheels) and passenger information systems (video and audio).

With regards to passenger safety, the new units have been designed with special features for protection against head on crashes (absorption of the shock energy), against fire (fireproof materials, fire detection and extinguishing system), emergency signalling (photoluminescent lighting) and surveillance (video surveillance circuit).

The most advanced computer and communication technology are used for the computerised train control systems, video-information and entertainment systems, and in the broad band train-earth communication systems (Wireless - LAN).


Basic details:

* Carbody structure: Aluminium
* Doors clearance (mm): 1.300
* Doors per side: 3
