Avenida de Guadalajara

one of the new stations on Madrid subway Line 2's eastside extension is called Avenida de Guadalajara. Here are some photos. They are from user danielpm_87 of the anden 2 forum.

For 'new' stations I think they look downright eighty-ish and damn ugly as well!

I don´t think so, it´s only that these are four stations which really are at the end of the line, and relatively far from central Madrid.
Bear i mind that there is no link station either.

To me they look like any other new station in Madrid... which means I don´t dislike them, I actually like them a lot.

In the end it´s just another hole with a couple of platforms and trains coming and going through it...

Yeah, they do look not very impressive but Madrid is the fastest growing metro system in Europe which i would call an excuse for the poor artworks (more like not existent art) in stations. Its all newly opened stations arent very decorative and are more like

and very usefull holes
What do ppl prefer: more km of the metro or more beatiful stations but fewer? We all know the answer.

what's the deal with C7? do trains do the whole loop or do some trains loop back and head to Alcala de Henares while others loop off to Fuente de la Mora?

They're a bit plain, but functional. They can always make them nicer looking at a future date. Madrid's Metro is awesome!

That was the case a few years ago. Rapid expansion has grinded to a halt since the last major openings in 2007.

I believe Barcelona has a higher pace of construction at this moment with the ongoing construction of L9/L10. And in a few years, Paris might well take the lead if the major expansion plans for line 14 and the circular metro line begin to take shape.

But I'm going slightly off-topic now.

What do ppl prefer: more km of the metro or more beatiful stations but fewer? We all know the answer.
ANYWAY: one of the stations (Alsacia, I think -Alsace in Spanish, named after a square-) has been decorated by an artist with a HUGE painting on the wall. I actually like it a lot, although contemporary art is not my cup of tea...

Aaaand... yesterday was opened the new entrance hall at Opera station (lines 2, 5 and R), it has been extended and adapted to the disabled (lifts).

Haven´t tested it yet, but looks rather more wider, and there´s more light.
It´s a very crowded station, but it used to be rather narrow and dark (built in 1925, that´s normal for stations of that age, to be dark and narrow!).

And they´ve put a mini archeological museum with some oldies they found under the square during the works.

If anyone has the pics, thank you.

Are both station in mirasierra opening? Or just the one at the train depot? What will the one at costa brava be called if the one at the depot is called mirasierra, I ask because the Cercanias station will be called mirasierra and that could cause confusion if the metro station attached to it doesn't have the same name? And finally (yes, a lot of questions!) when is the planned Cercanias station at mirasierra going to begin construction?

Well, I don´t know where exactly the El Sacedal depot for line 9 is located, if I´m not mistaken it is somewhere in between the new Mirasierra station and the future new station yet to be built.

The future interchange station (to be called Costa Brava, Mirasierra-Whatsits or any new other name) between line 9 and Cercanías has not been started yet.

Thanks for the pics, Julandronic, that´s exactly what I meant a few posts above, those paintings at Las Rosas (so it´s finally there and not in Alsacia station?), and the mini archaeological museum at the new refurbishde and extended entrance hall at Opera station.

Ps: julandronic, are you Yugoslavian?

Un pequeño reportaje que hice antes de ayer de lo que ahora se conoce como "Museo de los Caños del Peral".

El museo se puede ver a través de una cristalera.



En el exterior hay un cartel informando sobre el hallazgo y proceso de musealización de los restos.



Una vez dentro la joya de la corona es lo que se conserva de la fuente de los Caños del Peral, una fuente de carácter monumental del siglo XVI atribuida a Juan Bautista de Toledo.



Es uno de los extremos de la fuente, que medía más de 30 metros de longitud y abastecía de agua al vecindario.





Los sillares están perfectamente labrados, aunque desgastados por el tiempo.



Pila rematada con forma de venera.





Cartel explicativo.



Y a su lado la alcantarilla de Arenal.



También del siglo XVI.





Y el último elemento es el acueducto de Amaniel.



Construido a principios del siglo XVII, llevaba agua desde la dehesa de Amaniel hasta el Palacio Real, por entonces alcázar.











El espacio musealizado se completa con unas gradas para ver un vídeo explicativo de cómo ha ido cambiando la plaza a lo largo de los tiempos, el hallazgo de la fuente y su musealización.

News: works for a new extension of line 9 seem to have started.

This new extension will lead the trains from the current end of line 9 at Mirasierra to a new interchange station with Cercanías Renfe suburban trains which might be called Costa Brava.
