When it first began to be constructed it was, I can assure you of that.

yeah it is nice... typical Sotto Moura and Siza Vieira Architecture...

despite 4 availables lines already there's still one under construction (Centre-Airport) and another 3 or 4 in project. one of them involves a whole new above-surface line connecting Casa da Música to Foz (by the sea) , and there's also one involving the construction of a new bridge + an underground line connecting Casa da Musica to Campo Alegre (Universities) to Arrabida (Shopping Centres and Residential ZOnes).

To note that Metro do Porto is now a "State" company. Before, it was in the hands of Porto's "Junta Metropolitana"(Mertopolitan Council).. I am unaware of the advantages of this.

Are you sure? When were the works in Porto started?

The Madrid metro first opened in 1919 and since then has undergone extensive modernisation and extension. In the last eight years over 111km of new lines have been added including 63 stations which may be accessed by elevator. The total network consists of 228km and has 161 stations.

the point is how much it costed. And what they say could also be just about projects starting from scratch... which would mean expansions, etc. don't count.

Besides, that's what they said in the newspapers.

That's 3.27 billion Euros for how many km of line? The reason I'm asking, is that I'm really kind of intrigued by this idea. In the Twin Cities, they're looking to build a line connecting downtown Minneapolis to downtown St. Paul. I'm a little worried about the proposed method, (street level lightrail downtown sharing with another line that goes from Minneapolis to the airport), and the possible traffic problems it could create, and was wondering how affordable this would be in comparison to the current plan.

The Metro do Porto network, which is more than 37 km in length (when completed it will have 70km), was designed with the people passengers and their commuting needs in mind. Every day, it transports tens of thousands of passengers in perfectly comfortable and safe conditions and with excellent efficiency. In 2005 18,5 million passengers used the metro. Inaugurated in 1/01/2003 with only one line, it has already transported 34 million people.
