First Vossloh LRV for Santos shipped to Brazil
Thursday, April 10, 2014



THE FIRST of 22 LRVs being built by Tremvia Santos, a consortium of TTrans and Vossloh, for the first light rail line in the Brazilian city of Santos began its sea voyage from Spain to Brazil on April 8.

The 43.7m-long seven-section low-floor vehicle, which was built at the Vossloh Rail Vehicles plant at Albuixech near Valencia is due to arrive at the port of Santos on May 22.

EMTU, which is managing the project to build the line from São Vicente to Santos, says test operation will begin in June. Trials will continue until the first quarter of next year, when commercial operation is due to start.

The first three LRVs are being built in Spain, while the remaining 19 units will be assembled in Brazil, with the final vehicle scheduled for delivery to Santos in May 2015.

The initial 11km section of the line will run from Porto to São Vicente Barreiros Terminal, while the second phase comprises a 4km branch from Conselheiro Nébias to Valongo. The line is expected to carry around 70,000 passengers per day.

New trajectory to the city center (Phase II)

Segundo trecho do VLT tem novo traçado para preservar vias
Leonardo Costas
Enquanto ocorrem as obras do primeiro trecho do Veículo Leve Sobre Trilhos (VLT), Terminal Barreiros – Porto, o traçado da segunda parte (Conselheiro Nébias – Valongo) está concluído. Inicialmente previsto para circular nas duas pistas da Avenida Conselheiro Nébias, a composição utilizará outras vias, tanto em direção ao Centro, quanto no sentido oposto.
No novo trajeto, o trem sai da Avenida Francisco Glicério, entra na Rua Campos Melo e continua até virar à esquerda na Rua João Pessoa.

Depois, seguirá até a Rua São Bento e iniciará o retorno, passando pelas ruas Amador Bueno, Constituição, Luís de Camões e três quadras da Avenida Conselheiro Nébias, até acessar novamente a Avenida Francisco Glicério, para, posteriormente, continuar viagem até São Vicente. De acordo com a secretária adjunta de gabinete da Prefeitura de Santos, Débora Blanco, a mudança era necessária para preservar uma das mais importantes vias da Cidade.

“A Conselheiro Nébias é uma avenida consagrada com prestação de serviços na área de educação, saúde e preserva pontos residenciais. No primeiro projeto conceitual, ela ficaria com uma faixa do VLT e outra para o fluxo. Se ampliássemos o tamanho da caixa de rolamento, teríamos desapropriação nas duas bordas”, comenta.

Tanto Executivo santista quantoa Empresa Metropolitana de Transportes Urbanos (EMTU/SP), segundo ela, estão convencidos de que encontraram o melhor trajeto. “Com isso, haverá revitalização de áreas importantes, como a do Mercado Municipal, e de vias que precisariam de melhorias”.

DETALHES

Se o traçado está pronto, ainda faltam ser definidos alguns detalhes como, por exemplo, a exata localização das estações, pontos de desapropriação e das subestações de energia, que ainda dependem de entendimentos finais entre a EMTU/ SP e a Prefeitura de Santos.

O segundo trecho terá oito quilômetros e doze estações. Três delas devem ser construídas ao longo da Rua Campos Melo, que terá a calçada ampliada, uma faixa para o VLT e duas para o trânsito. Não será permitido estacionar. Ao ingressar na Rua João Pessoa, a composição circulará do lado esquerdo, junto à calçada e à ciclovia que estão emconstrução.Outras três faixas serão destinadas para carros e motos. Ônibus não passarão mais pela via. “Conseguimos conservar a Rua General Câmara e manter o circuito do bonde sem grandes impactos”, complementa Blanco.

Na Rua São Bento, começa o percurso de volta. Depois, o trem passa por dentro da Praça dos Andradas e chega na Rua Amador Bueno, onde terão duas faixas, uma para rolamento e outra para o VLT. O mesmo formato será adotado na Rua Constituição. Na Rua Luís de Camões (próximo à sede da Capitania dos Portos de São Paulo), o equipamento vai para o canteiro central da Avenida Conselheiro Nébias.
