VALENCIA (VENEZUELA) | Public Transport

Here are the pics of the new Valencia's Metro to be opened at the end of november

The City


LINE 1
Lenght: 7 km
stations: Monumental ( Terminal), Las Ferias, Palotal, Santa Rosa, Michelena, Lara y Cedeño.


First line of a light metro system partly underground is currently under construction. The first 7 km long stretch will include 7 stations. Platforms are 120 m long. 4.7 km underground between Las Ferias and Cedeño (bored tunnel). The depot is located next to the southern terminus Monumental.

6 trains are being built by Siemens in California and are based on the vehicles used in Saint Louis. Permanently-coupled pairs can operate as single units or be coupled to up to 4-unit trainsets. Trains are planned to run every 4 minutes.

Very nice system, but in Europe this kind of system is a tramway network, not full metro!
