it is probably just waiting there for any future plans, such as the parallel ABC Express line which will be the express service along line 10.

Line 4 to extend opening hours to 4h40 am (from 8 am today) starting on next Monday (May 2, 2011), but still not on weekends:

http://www.estadao.com.br/noticias/g...2,710964,0.htm

Closing hour will still be 3 pm at least until June, when the government says it will be extended to normal metro hours (past midnight).

As of now (april 2011) line 4 opens from 8am to 3pm from Monday to Friday, including holidays.

Map of future Oratório station and yard (under construction), line 2 East Side monorail, about 2.2 km east of line 2 station Vila Prudente.




It will look something like this (render for most East Side monorail stations)
