BNDES aprova R$ 4,47 bi para Linha 6 de SP

05/06/2014

O Banco Nacional de Desenvolvimento Econômico e Social (BNDES) aprovou o financiamento de R$ 4,47 bilhões ao Estado de São Paulo para a implantação da Linha 6-Laranja do metrô. Os recursos do BNDES correspondem a 39,2% do total a ser investido no projeto, que também receberá recursos do Estado (13,9%) e da concessionária Move São Paulo (46,9%), por meio de um contrato de parceria público-privada (PPP).

A Linha 6-Laranja abrangerá o trecho de Vila Brasilândia a São Joaquim, com 13,3 quilômetros de extensão e 15 estações (Brasilândia, Vila Cardoso, Itaberaba-Hospital Vila Penteado, João Paulo I, Santa Marina, Água Branca, Sesc Pompéia, Perdizes, PUC-Cardoso de Almeida, Angélica-Pacaembu, Higienópolis-Mackenzie, 14 Bis, Bela Vista e São Joaquim).

Com investimento estimado em R$ 8 bilhões e implantação no prazo de seis anos (2020), a nova linha deverá atender 633,3 mil passageiros por dia útil. A concessionária responsável pela implantação, operação e manutenção da linha pertence ao consórcio vencedor da licitação, formado pelos grupos Odebrecht, Queiroz Galvão e UTC Participações. O prazo de vigência da concessão se encerra em abril de 2039.

Santos (port city 1 km south of Sao Paulo, pop 400k / metrpolitan 1.6 million) gains its first light rail system, entering test phase soon, to be operational later this year. More info on the Santos Tram thread or in the BRAZIL URBAN TRANSPORT COMPILATION thread.

Such cities an San Paulo have to have the systems comparable to those in Shanghai or Tokyo in terms of their size.

Couldn't agree more. Here is the most recent "Future Network" map that appeared just a few days ago BTW:



This is the scenario for circa 2030

I don't understand - in long-term Sao Paolo planned to close Julio Prestes station (Commuter line 8) and extend line 11 to Palmeiras Barra Funda?

Nobody understands it either. The plans to shut down Julio Prestes exist since the late 90s. Apparently the plan now is to shut down the station and replace it with future Bom Retiro station. The extension of Line 11 to the West has also been in the plans since the late 90s, but it depends on complicated interventions in the central rail system and nobody expects it anytime soon.

Brazil World Cup: Sao Paulo metro strike to continue
9 June 2014


The strike affected millions of people and created traffic chaos in Sao Paulo

Metro workers in Brazil's largest city, Sao Paulo, have voted to remain on strike for an indefinite period despite an earlier ruling by a labour court calling on them to return to work

The court said that the unions had abused their powers.

The governor of Sao Paulo state Geraldo Alckmin said he would dismiss employees who did not come to work on Monday.

With most metro stations closed since Thursday, Sao Paulo has experienced horrendous traffic jams.

The dispute comes as the city prepares to host the opening match of the World Cup on Thursday

Metro workers are demanding a pay rise of 12.2%; the state owned company has offered 8.7%.

The court in Sao Paulo said that the metro company had acted "in good faith".

It also ruled that the workers broke strike rules by not providing a minimum level of service.

At least 70% of trains should have been running during the day, and 100% during the morning and evening rush hours.


The strike left some of Sao Paulo's main stations empty for the past four days


"Yes, the World Cup is going to happen!" reads the banner held at Sao Paulo's Morumbi stadium last week


"Transport is not a commodity": Union leaders have voted to go into strike for a fifth day

It ruled that the metro unions will have to pay 100,000 reais per day ($45,000; £25,000) for the first four days of strike and 500,000 reais ($220,000; £130,000) per day from Monday.

A few hours later, the unions held a ballot and decided to carry on with the strike.

The two unions negotiating with the company say that the strike will be called off if their demand is met.

"It is not our intention to continue the strike into the World Cup. Our intention is to solve the problem. But that should be the government's aim too," the president of the metro workers' union, Altino Prazeres, told O Globo newspaper.

The strikers've now been informed that they'll be sacked should they continue their strike. Where might replacement drivers be readily and immediately found?

This strike went beyond all limits. Usually strikes last 1, maybe 2 days, with services partly running. Obviously this is a Union maneuver to press the State Government (the Metro is a state affair) given the proximity of the World Cup opening, just three days from now, especially to create political fame for certain Union leaders who would run for opposing parties (the state governor belongs to the right wing PSDB party). They should be put in jail.

The metro construction workers are not striking - that's the important part.

Services ARE running partially. I do agree, however, that it's gone off boundaries.

Yes but the "partly running" this time involves a far smaller part - only the central sections of most lines were running, only about 28 stations out of 65 were open - fortunately Line 4 (which is privately operated) and CPTM (a different governmental company) were running, which was the only thing that kept the city alive so far.

The strike only involves the CMSP Company ("Metro Company")

The World Cup stadium, BTW, can be reached both by Metro Line 3 and CPTM Line 11 - so if the strike proceeds, we stilll have Line 11, which is actually an express line connecting the city center to the stadium with only one stop, as opposed to Line 3, which is a stopper line with like 15 stops between the city center and the stadium.

In any case I've heard there is a "Plan B", which I surmise would be shutting down the Radial Leste (East Side Freeway) and placing a lot of mega-busses to use it free from traffic.

The East Side Freeway runs parallel to Lines 3 and 11.

The strike has been legally ruled as illegal - so penalizing them (with jail or, as the case appears to be, a fine) is the mandatory outcome.
