The Metro Company has decided on the final location (final until now at least ) of future line 6 Angelica station. This year this station was a subject of controversy as a local neighborhood "NIMBY" movement opposed the station at Angelica Avenue because it would attract "unwanted people" etc. The public reaction to that movement was very strong to the point that street protests were organized at the site.

The new location will be just one block from the original location, which is a reasonable solution, since the original location, regardless of being opposed by locals, was indeed a bit to close to line 4 (and future line 6) station Higienópolis-Mackenzie.

Maps:

Two earlier proposals and the third, final solution:


Location in map (originally one block eastward at Angelica avenue):



Full map of current proposal for line 6, which is slated to start construction in 2013, phase 1 will include its northwestern section from Brasilandia to Sao Joaquim. The full line will have 34 stations and be 34 km long, probably becoming the system's longest and most important line when completed sometime next decade.

I wonder why they don't even consider expanding the line 2 further than Vila Madalena. It could connect to Imperatriz Leopoldina station, and have some 2 more stations on the way ... it would be great ... I know they have other priorities, but it could at least be a plan.


One curious thing is the expansion on line 9 from Grajau until Varginha. Looks really easy and would benefit a lot of people (as this line had this connection several years ago). I guess they don't do it fearing the great demand that it would generate, and the line might not support it. I guess they'll only do it when they put some new trains and reduce the interval among them.

Actually, both of those extensions are under consideration. They don't show on that map because they aren't mature yet.

Guys, again and respectfully, I'd suggest, and no more than that, everyone reduces the number of photos posted each time. Not only it takes ages to open, but it makes the thread "unreadable".

For everyone who has not a deep knowledge of the system and wants to see every minor shinny detail of construction works, it becomes boring to see gazillion pictures of every possible angle of every possible station or every possible construction site. 5 or 6 photos of a new station makes a nice collection to see and comment. 50 or 60 pictures makes it an overwhelming flood of pictures usually unwarranted.

Sure, everybody can post anything within the rules. I just think that, by flooding the thread with compilations that look more like construction technical reports, people scares away other forumers from interacting within the thread. Which is proved by the virtually absence of people who don't speak Portuguese (and thus can follow the avalanche of posting in their original threads) in this thread.

Repeating it clearly: no disrespect intended. Just a tip for those who are eager to post to get more interaction from international forumers.

It's strange to see a 2+2 seating with narrow seats and a very wide walking medial corridor.
