News from Donostialdea - picture inside of Altuza station, which will be terminus of one of metro services (don't know which one, because metro project is still U/C):
http://www.diariovasco.com/gipuzkoa/...506280757.html



And two new platforms at Loiola station were opened yesterday:

Scematic plans of exits:



And platform itself - Euskotren now uses them. The old platforms, as far as I understood, will be demolished:

Some prepatory works above proposed route of Metro's city centre section. This section, between Amara and Lugaritz stations, will make current reversing of Metro trains at Amara station unnececary. It wasn't said in article, but construction is planned to begin next year and will be completed in 3-4 years time. Tunnels will be excavated using mining method:

Wow, the tunnel will go briefly under the Concha bay or is that just the rendering?

Under the beach, it seems. Although in high tide it will in fact be under the bay.

Indeed, I remember when I visited San Sebastian and had a few hours on the beach how you end up putting your towel 2 m from the water and 3 hours later have to walk 50 metres to get to the shore.

Anyway, cool engineering. Public transport in Donostia was lagging behind the excellent systems in Bilbao and Vitoria.

Gaintxurizketa station, taken by forumer pedro during the annual Behobia-San Sebastián run back in late October:


Unlike Bilbao, San Sebastián has both bus lines 35 and 41. IIRC ten years ago numbers only went up to 32...

New Altza station will open on September 12.

There's an interesting video of the new station on the link below:

Metro Donostia

I had been there in April. some construction sites. Loiola station the new viaduct is u.c. the provisorical station is of heawy construction including elevators! Herrera station looks to become 3 tracks outwards to Irun as open space is shown. Construction of the city tunnel will start soon. Intxaurrondo station is very deep - 2 separate entrances at booth sides - including entraces at booth sides of a highway trough. Old blue cars are very selden seen in service nearly all the new silver cars operating. good train frequence.

This is how the new service pattern of Euskotren in Donostia / San Sebastián area will look like from next Monday:



http://www.irekia.euskadi.eus/es/new...eibar-elgoibar

The common section between Errekalde and Herrera will thus have a train every 7.5 minutes throughout the day. It's a pity trains will still need to reverse at Donostia Amara station until the new cross-city tunnel is built.

Works on the new Loiola station:



Currently the trains stop at a provisional station built at one side, which will be demolished after the new station is opened.

Some more pictures of new Altza station in Donostia / San Sebastián, cross-posting from the Basque sub-forum in the Spanish forum:

Desde la zona de billetes



Tramo excavado hacía Pasaia



Detalle salida hacia Paseo Larratxo, con señalización de información, ambulatorio y parada de bus



Típico tramo de escaleras mecánicas hacia el abismo.
