I have a map of Lisboa and it says the station Sta. Apolonia should be open by the end of 2004. I understand that they must have had some problems with building tunnels or stations.
Anyway your metro is beautifull. I saw most of the stations last year.

Why does it have to speak of Portugal?

Very informative pics! Searching back in this thread I saw an argument about whether Athens metro is better looking than Lisbon metro. Well, let me express my opinion.
Metros can be beautiful in 2 different ways. One kind of beauty lies in the innovative architectural design incorporating artistic elements. Here I am not talking about statues or sculptures scattered here and there. Such embellishments can be installed any time in any metro system! What I mean is the structure of the stations itself. In this respect Lisbon metro is one among the few systems in the world that have a similar approach. Of course number one worldwide is Moscow metro, followed by St. Petersburg, Kiev, Santiago, Stockholm, Montreal and finally Lisbon.
Another kind of beauty relies more on cleanness, bright colors, plentiful lighting, wide spaces, luxurious facing materials such as marble etc. Athens metro belongs to this category. It is a bit difficult to find other systems of this kind in Europe. One has to travel to East Asia to look for rivals of the Athens metro. Such examples are found in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Bangkok, Singapore and even in New Delhi. A prerequisite is that cleaning personnel works all day, otherwise the metro system degrades (for instance Vienna metro would belong to this category if they did not save on personnel).
The ideal metro would be one that combines the 2 kinds of beauty, but that does not exist.
About Lisbon metro, I am looking forward to the extension to Santa Apolonia. Maybe then I decide to visit the city for the first time! As for the other extensions, I would like to see a straight metro line reaching the airport instead of the tortuous red line.
