“The platform of patience”, “Metro de Madrid, an infinity of passengers” and “It’s close now, I can see it coming”, have received the first thee prizes. The winning photos - three from the general public and three from employees - will be displayed along with 97 others.

Are there any parts of the metro that are elevated or running at grade?

I must say, the Madrid Metro is very impressive, one of the best systems in the world.

Indeed. Just a bid was more than enough to do this miracle and not only in metro. Just imagine how massive would have been the extension programme if the had finally won the Olympic games.

Anyone know the status of the extension of Line 9 into Mirasierra?

And are there plans to bring Metro out to Las Rozas?

The extension to Mirasierra is being built, but veery slowly.
Budget reasons, Madrid is rather indebted after all those mega-extensions these years.

No plans to Las Rozas for now, nor for the next ten years.

I think that line 3 should run onto the rails of cercanías to Las Rozas operating like metro after Moncloa. I don't know if its possible though it would not cost much.
