Loan to support Granada metro construction
2 JAN, 2014



The Government of Andalusia has been granted a €130 million loan to fund the construction of Granada’s first light rail line.

The loan is the second tranche of a €260 million loan from the European Investment Bank (EIB) which is supporting the construction of the 16-kilometre Granada metro line, maintenance depot and the procurement of new rolling stock.

EIB vice president Magdalena Álvarez Arza and Andalusia’s Finance Minister María Jesús Montero confirmed the loan agreement in Luxembourg last month.

The north-south line, which includes 26 stops, will be mostly above-ground apart from a 2.8-kilometre underground section through Camino de Ronda and Avenida de America.

As well as the €130 million loan, the EIB announced the approval of a second €250 million loan to partly fund ‘priority investments’ under Andalusia’s 2007-2013 Strategic Reference Framework.

Three videos of the old Granada tramways.

Some of the streets that had the old trams will have the new ones too, notably near the railway station.

The latest news is that the section Albolote-La Caleta would open by 2015.
The rest of the line by 2016.

Update.

Things are getting faster now.

All the sections are finished or in advanced works, and finally, the least advanced área, the one around the railway station, has started the works (permission from Adif was hardly won).

Here is some stuff.

Alcázar-Genil station entrance:

I think the station entrance is very classy and beautiful.

If you compare them with the metro entrances in Málaga and Sevilla, the ones in Granada are wonderful.

For instance, a metro station in Sevilla: http://www.urbanrail.net/eu/es/sevil...-Sebastian.htm

Yes, these are definitely better than the ones you cited but sometimes I feel that a simple sign and stairs leading down would be sufficient. For example like in Paris or London. These things don't always have to be fancy.

Yes, I agree with you. Most underground stations in Madrid and Barcelona just have stairs, escalators and/or elevators leading down from the sidewalk. I don't know why the Andalusian government, in charge of the construction of the Sevilla, Málaga and Granada metros, decided to add these structures to all underground stations. Maybe they wanted to copy the Bilbao metro, but they failed to do so properly in Sevilla and Málaga.

I really like the walls, directly result from jet grouting - or Soilcrete® - system

Las paredes del interior me gustan mucho ..
