The new line 3 metro trains appear to have a problem with excessive brake noise, as this video shows:

This one not by a forumer, it shows the 7000 on line 12 from the parallel-running line 3 train, pretty unique.

The forumer above might be a little optimistic, but line 4 will start operations indeed from a few weeks from now to about two months (maybe) with 2 stations only, Paulista and Faria Lima, another 4 to open until late 2010 (or early 2011) = this is called phase 1. Phase two stations (5) are intermediate stations which will remain closed until completion sometime between 2012 and 2014.

Line 9 section built around 1983, line 5 section (cable bridge) opened in 2002.

Google Earth view of the entire Complex:

New station (this is perhaps the only metro station in the world built as a stay-cable bridge - obs: this bridge is only a metro station, there is no passage for cars)

Crane that tipped over onto metro station construction site still blocking street in SP




The hoist of a cranetruck that broke down and tipped over a truck in the construction site of future station Morumbi (4-Yellow Line) remains there as of early on Wednesday. According to CET (Traffic Engineering Company), the right lane of Avenida Francisco Morato remains blocked in the Downtown direction in Butantã, in western Sao Paulo. There is no slowdown in local traffic.

According to the Via Amarela the consortium responsible for the construction, the lifting of the vehicle is being carried out by technicians. The crane fell into the construction site around 4 p.m local time yesterday (6). No one was injured.

Also according to the Consortium, the construction works in the station were not paralyzed, since all Line 4 stations are underground.

Júlio Prestes Station (1936) - Line 8


Built to serve normal long distance passenger services for the old Sorocabana Railways to São Paulo state, with the downfall of long distance passenger rail it was eventually restricted to suburban rail (which evolved into today's line 8). Today it is underused as a station since line 8 transfers at Barra Funda to several other lines, while Júlio Prestes is a terminus line, isolated (although physically near the very important, though older and smaller, Luz station)

Probably the most monumental and beautiful construction in São Paulo city.

Original design



1940's:


1982:

Suburban service by the defunct Fepasa (state-owned São Paulo railway company, existed until late 90's)



Modern day pics




















The whole thing is a steel behemoth! Too bad there are plans to mothball it as a passenger station. The office section is now used as tha São Paulo Music Hall.






Signage still is from the days of Fepasa, when the company revamped its suburban service in the late 70's/ early 80's (those trains were als bought at that time).






Detail of benches:





New platform extremities were completed in January 2010:













Plaque commemorating the new revamped Fepasa suburban service, 1979.


Ticket office from the 1930's!


Modern standardized CPTM totem:
