Line 5 construction moving ahead in the South Side of town and a bonus was that old Santo Amaro tramway tracks have been unearthed during the digs! The new section of line 5 will run exactly along the tracks of the old tramway (defunct since 1968), but underground of course (pics by Saviano Marcio):







Meanwhile new line 5 station Adolfo Pinheiro is getting started! (conclusion: 2011)



Scheme of line 5 after extension is completed (official plans say 2014, I say around 2015):



Geographical map with other lines indicated:



Another similar map from a newspapar:

New line 2 train at Alto do Ipiranga station, by Lro A C. This train is part of a batch of 16 new trains for line 2 being delivered since 2009 to prepare the line for the projected increase in ridership from 350,000/day to 800,000/day with the three new Eastern stations in the line (Sacomã, Tamaduateí and Vila Prudente - the first of which is already open since Jan/10, the two remaining will open by mid 2010)

A bit of history: the implosion of the Mendes Caldeira 30-storey highrise in downtown São Paulo in 1975 to give place to Sé station



And a short video of the opening of Sé station in February 1978:

Update on Tamanduateí, including the new CPTM station on line 11 which will connect to the new line 2 station. The line 11 station is quite old and is being rebuilt for the new reality. By Eduardo GJF.
