This doesn't happens in Oporto, because it never shares tracks with the cars. There are only road intersections with traffic lights allways green for the metro.
In Essen line U17 is an upgraded tram converted to light rail.

In the suburbs it mostly has its own tracks but there are a few places where the roads is not wide enough so it shares roadspace with the other traffic.

At one location the trams / light rail vehicles cross a high bridge, and here too they share the road with the other traffic - but special traffic signals let them go first.

Nowadays this route uses "high floor" lrv's where passengers can enter without climbing steps - whilst this was good for people who need easy access it also meant that at least one tram stop had to be closed because it was not possible to build proper platforms.

btw, both the lrv's seen here originally came from London's Docklands Light Railway. They were sold to Essen because they did not comply with British safety standards for use in the underground tunnels built for the line to Bank. For Essen they were fitted overhead wire collection devices (pantographs) and at each end of the vehicle a cab for a driver (in London the DLR trains are driven by computers - this is not possible in Essen on lines which also use the roads with cars, lorries, pedestrians, etc!)

Porto's metro system

the biggest public construction project in the European Union. Only two lines are working at the moment, the rest is due to open before 2010.

this is how it's going to look like when work is completed..



the blue and the red lines are already in service.

Sounds great but is Porto large enough to justify such an expensive system. Whey not LRT with sopme underground sections?
How big is Porto? I thought it only had about a million.
