Sintra train and Metro linked to the end of the year


Metropolitano de Lisboa has awarded the works of extension of the blue line to Reboleira, in Amadora and expects to complete the connection to the railway line Sintra until the end of the year.





"Are being developed every effort so that you can perform the opening to the operation by the end of this year", confirmed to Lusa the underground press office, explaining that the contract in Amadora Este / Reboleira section was awarded by 8.795 million in euros.


The Speaker of the House of Amadora, Carla Tavares (PS), welcomed the start of work, which he considered "crucial for mobility in the northern part of the Metropolitan Area [Lisbon] and the municipalities of Amadora and Sintra."
According to a spokesperson from the metro, the contract includes several specialties, especially "construction, low-energy, telecommunications, rail, electromechanical and landscaping to the surface in the area adjacent to the station, at Rua Industries and Armando Romão Park ".


In the first phase we were invested about 45 million euros in the tunnel with 579.2 meters from Amadora Este, and station and terminal area of ​​Reboleira, but the works were suspended due to funding problems.


In the environmental impact study of the extension of the metro to Reboleira, 2007, it was expected to open the operation in August 2010, but the suspension of the work has delayed the entry into service "for December 2015," yet there is no guarantee that the project will be reimbursed by Community funds.


The carrier notes that the extension is inserted "in the strategy of strengthening intermodality with the railway and ensure the connection of the Blue Line to the Sintra train line."


The study of economic viability of the undertaking provides that, with the folding of the railway line of Sintra, "the demand generated by future Reboleira station is about four million passengers / year."


The Mayor of Amadora revealed that the chamber will approve in July the contest to intervene at Avenida D. Carlos I, "with an investment of 600,000 euros for the rehabilitation of the [Bingo] Estrela da Amadora and the season of Damaia" .


"Having this investment by the railway subway connection also invest to bring more security to the public space, so that people feel more motivated to use public transport," said Carla Tavares.


The president of the municipality explained that the intervention in D. Carlos I "will increase the parking, strengthen public lighting, creating rest areas and connect the hiking trail of Reboleira" to the city center.


"This area will have nearly a thousand parking spaces," he recorded the councilor for Mobility and Public Works Municipal Gabriel Oliveira (PS).
The municipal project wants to enhance the 600 seats of the car park of Portugal Infrastructures (ex-Refer), the 200 seats next to Bingo, 100 places next to the Reboleira interface, the 50 seats in the D. Carlos I and others in small squares surroundings.


The connection to the metro trains will be covered and, with the interface will be created ten terminals for buses, and four nearby, said the councilman.
The road project was redesigned to three lanes, due to constraints with buildings in Damaia, but access to the new intermodal station will be easier for buses and cars.


The blue metro line will have a length of 13.7 kilometers with 18 stations between Reboleira and Santa Apolonia (Lisbon).

Lisbon Metro - Impressions and questions

Hi,

last week I stayed in the beautiful city of Lisbon with it´s intersting transport-systgem and of cause I visited all metro-stations. The overall appearance is very good and I have some questions about things I noticed:

1) Seems that metro is running very slow at the moment. Nearly every track is used with a sign 45 which probably indicates 45 km/h max. speed. If I recall correctly, normal speed is 60 or 72 km/h. Is there a task for lower energy comnsumption during crisis? Also I noticed an interval of 6 minutes at the least, going up to 10 minutes after rush-hour which gave me time for pics but seems to be not the normal operation-mode the metro was designed for.

2) Platform lengthening at green line takes place, as Areeiro station extension is complete. Now they seem to refurbish the old platforms to make it complete. Only short station left is Arroios. After that it must be possible to have 6-car-trains on green line or is there another thing left to do (signalling)?

3) Since Lisbon Metro runs trains from the 90s, they have a completed fire-protection system regarding trains, as they are all sprinklered, but none of the shops/magazines.

4) I tried to view prelimanery works for fill-in stations like Calvanes or Madrid on green line but didn´t find any. I suppose those stations have been planned but nothing was already built for it.

5) Is there a track-map for Lisbom metro? I found nothing, maybe it´s only in portuguese. It must be interesting because as I found out, there is no track connection anymore between Rossio and Restauradores. But there are linking tracks between some lines at transfer-stations. Also Colegio Militar/Luz has an interesting alignment of two sidings at each end of the station, which is not common in Lisbon Metro.

Favorite stations of mine besides magic Olaias station have been Lumiar, Bela Vista, Chelas, Picoas and surprisingly Intendente. Whereas the latter is not refurbished since the 70s, colour-sheme is somewhat appealing.

Not to forget about Carris-transport-museum. There is a small department abour metro, too, but it is mainly about trams and busses. It lies directly under 25.April bridge in Alcantara and it is a must for public-transport-fans. As it is situated on a depot you are caried from one part to another via an old tram with polstered seats.

Kind regards
