SALVADOR | Public Transport

The Brazilian city of Salvador, population 3 million, is finally opening its first metro line in 2014, after 14 years of construction (the project was halted for many years due to lack of funds).

The city also has an old suburban rail line which will be modernized into a modern light rail tram service.

A BRT system is being implemented as well.



Now for pictures of the world's newest metro system:

There's a change from this map to the new idea, where the line 2 is gonna start/connect with the first line not from "Bonocô statium" anymore, it's Acesso Norte the starting point for the line 2 now.

The gray line is a metro/train line nowdays but it will be modernized and tranforsmed in a big capacity Light Rail Vehicle and will extend it's capacity until near the port of Salvador, which is close to the last stop of the red subway line (1).

I remember this idea beeing the first proposal for Salvador-metro, having a metro-cross at Acesso Norte. The second line was further planned to meet grey urbanrail line some 15 years ago. Besides BRT-project, it seems logical to close that gap one day with metro-line 2.

Kind regards

Salvador metro opens in time for World Cup
Wednesday, June 11, 2014



LIMITED public services began on the first phase of the metro network in Salvador, Brazil, on June 11, just two days before the city is due to host its first fixture in the 2014 football World Cup.

Initially services will operate on the 7.6km five-station Lapa – Retiro section of Line 1 between 1200 and 1600 with trains running at 10-minute intervals and free travel for passengers. However on match days access will be limited to football fans with tickets.

Frequencies and operating hours will be increased incrementally with the aim of launching the full timetable by September. Services will be extended over the remaining 4.3km section of Line 1 phase 1 between Retiro and Pirajá in January.

Construction began in 2000 but the project has suffered repeated delays as a result of contractual disputes and political wrangling, which ultimately resulted in the Bahia state government taking over responsibility for completing the line.

At the start of this year the state government signed a PPP contract with Brazilian infrastructure concessionaire CCR for the construction and operation of the second phase of the network. This includes the 24.2km east-west Line 2 from the city centre to the airport and the 5.6km section of Line 1 between Acesso Norte and Pirajá. The contract also includes preparations for the extension of Line 1 to Águas Claras.

Construction is expected to take three-and-a-half years to complete, and CCR will operate the network for 27 years

GRAND OPENING

The first 7.2 km and 4 stations (two of them underground) opened today, June 6, 2014, a few hours ago.

"Metrô de calça comprida", assim foi chamado o equipamento pela presidente Dilma Rousseff nesta quarta-feira, 11, durante inauguração do Sistema Metroviário de Salvador. Em tom de brincadeira, a presidente se referiu ao jeito jocoso da população de chamar o metrô de calça curta, por conta da redução do trecho atendido pelo equipamento para 7,3 km entre Lapa e Retiro.

"Me disseram que tinha uma história que o metrô tinha 12 km e depois foi sendo reduzido. O povo é justo e chamava de metrô de calça curta. Mas estamos inaugurando aqui o metrô de calça comprida, porque a linha 1 vai ter continuidade. Nós já temos recurso inteiramente reservado para continuidade da linha 1", explicou Dilma, após fazer a viagem inaugural entre o Acesso Norte e o Campo da Pólvora ao lado do governador Jaques Wagner.

De acordo com a presidente, o repasse de verba federal garante a extensão do metrô até Cajazeiras e também há previsão de construir a linha 2, ligando Bonocô até Lauro de Freitas. Essa etapa deve ficar pronta em abril de 2017. Dilma destacou a importância de entregar o metrô por etapas, permitindo que a população use os trechos que já estão prontos.

A presidente aproveitou para criticar os governos anteriores ao PT. "Antes o governo investia pouco em mobilidade urbana, porque dizia que era problema dos estados e municípios. Então o governo federal lavava as mãos e não investia. Assim as obras não saiam. Hoje o recurso é dos bancos públicos federais, por achamos que o governo federal não tem obrigação legal, mas tem obrigação moral de investir em mobilidade urbana. Porque eu sou presidenta dos brasileiros, portanto de todos os soteropolitanos, de todos baianos. Não pode fingir que o governo federal é apenas Brasília".

Eleição

Dilma ainda aproveitou a cerimônia de inauguração para fazer palanque para o deputado federal Rui Costa, pré-candidato do PT ao governo estadual. "Quero agradecer em separado a Rui Costa, porque nessa questão do metrô e da mobilidade urbana, ele foi um dos grandes interlocutores com o governo federal. Muitas vezes só o número 1 (em referência a Jaques Wagner) recebe os louros. Mas nós (o PT) temos uma tradição desde o dia que o (então) presidente Lula disse que eu era a mãe do PAC. Você Jaques poderia colocar o Rui como pai do PAC na Bahia".

A presidente ainda ressaltou o papel do governador na conclusão do metrô depois de 14 anos de obras e elogiou a decisão do prefeito ACM Neto de transferir a responsabilidade pela obra para o Estado. Wagner também destacou a atitude de ACM Neto.

Metrô de Salvador faz primeira viagem com 'povão'
por Francis Juliano/ Juliana Almirante






Depois de receber autoridades em sua viagem inaugural, que contou a presença da presidente Dilma Rousseff, o metrô de Salvador fez o primeiro percurso aberto ao público às 13h20 desta quarta-feira (11). O Bahia Notícias embarcou junto com os passageiros que saíram da estação da Lapa com destino ao Acesso Norte. Antes da abertura, as pessoas aguardavam, em fila, o início das atividades no terminal. A viagem de 7,3 km/h foi realizada em 14 minutos e 36 segundos. O acesso ao metrô teve um atraso de mais de uma hora, já que o funcionamento estava previsto a partir das 12h. No mês de junho, o modal estará ativo até as 16h, com embarque gratuito. A cada mês seguinte, até o final da fase de testes, em setembro, o sistema começa a operar uma hora mais cedo. Já em dias de jogo, o acesso será limitado a torcedores com ingressos.

Metro is used exclusively for World Cup fans this Friday, transporting tourists and locals to watch Spain vs Netherlands in the city's arena.

O metrô de Salvador foi usado exclusivamento por torcedores que foram à Arena Fonte Nova assistir à partida entre Espanha x Holanda nesta sexta-feira, 13. Segundo informações da Secretaria de Comunicação Social do Estado da Bahia (Secom), o trajeto entre as estações Acesso Norte e Campo da Pólvora facilitou a chegada dos turistas ao estádio.

O transporte está disponível cinco horas antes e duas horas após as partidas para pessoas cadastradas no sistema de transporte e com ingressos para os jogos. O metrô para durante a partida e volta a circular depois, com saída do Campo da Pólvora até o destino final, no Acesso Norte.

De acordo com a Secom, as outras paradas ficam fechadas em dias de jogos, pela restrição de parte dos trilhos em áreas que foram bloqueadas pela Superintendência de Trânsito e Transporte de Salvador (Transalvador).

Nos dias em que não houver jogos do mundial em Salvador, o metrô fica disponível das 12h às 16h gratuitamente até setembro.
