As Faialense already said, the 2nd & 3rd phase on the network is on hold until the portuguese debt crises passes!!



The Porto Metropolitan Area has 1,4 Million people, but the network still has a lot of gaps, as you can see on the map that follows:


Legend:

Blue: actual network;

Red: 2nd phase (2011-2020) = 1,2 Bilion Euros;

Yellow: 3rd phase (2021-....).




In this post (portuguese thread) you can see all the existing information about each line:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...65&postcount=2

The dates there are wrong, the dates were the time table for the project in 2008!!!

Guys, is the Metro do Porto independend from road trafic in all those locations on this map, with the exception of the route: Senhora da Hora - Senhor de Matosinhos?

The Metro do Porto is always independent from road trafic, including the route between Senhora da Hora«»Sr. de Matosinhos, the road traffic only crosses the line at some points, but the Metro do Porto vehicles always have the priority over all the rest!!


Section in Line A between Matosinho-Mercado»Sr. de Matosinhos:

What i meant about 'independend' was - no crossings at all. No pedestrians at all, and no regular vehicles.

In that case, you have to add besides the section Senhora da Hora«»Senhor de Matosinhos, the following sections:

- in the Line B, the urban parts of the line in the towns of Póvoa de Varzim & Vila do Conde;

- in the Line C, between Parque Maia and Fórum Maia (urban part of Maia);

- in the Line D, between Hosp. de São João«»Pólo Universitário and D. Luis I Bridge«» Santo Ovídio;

- in the Line F, between Contumil«»Nau Vitória and Levada«»Fânzeres.

I wish Baltimore had a metro comparable to Porto's. Very clean, efficient system.

It's for a future expansion?

I saw that there is a straight, then curve to the left.
It's for a future expansion?
I imagine for the Rotunda de Castelo de Queijo and then follow peel Boa Vista Avenue to Casa da Música Station, or heading for Universidade / Lordelo de Ouro / Campo Alegre / Massarelos / São Bento station (transfer for line D) in Accounting in the existing tunel in Heroismo Station.

Happy new year for all.

Yes, it's for a expansion of only one station in direction of the beach. It's a part of São Mamede line, from Pólo Universitário to Matosinhos (Praia) by São Mamede.

About your "imaginations"

At first it was planned a line along Boavista Avenue from Brito Capelo to Casa da Música. Then it was abandonned and it's now planned to go from Brito Capelo to S. Bento by Campo Alegre. But there's no money to do it

Initially, when it was built, no!! The Idea was that if the commercial service had to end in the station Matosinhos-Sul (at the image) the vehicle would stop in a straight line before the station and not in the pedestrian street on the left!!!


With the plans for the 2nd phase expansion, there is a line that will end 500 meters after, near the beach (image below):




And the line on the left will continue to Cidade São Salvador»Castelo do Queijo»Praça do Império»Campo Alegre»Cordoaria»S. Bento, where it is plan to connect with the Line D at S. Bento Station (it will be in tunnel from Cidade São Salvador»S. Bento).



P.S.: all available information, so far, of the 2nd and 3rd expansion phase (in portuguese):
