they could use beauty and grandeur with out spend a lot of money and with functionality dont you agree?

Hi!

I was in Lisbon in June and I was very surprised.
In my guidebook, the extension of Linha Azul to the Santa Apolonia train station was marked as under construction and "to be opened in 2003". What happened?
Why isn't that extension open? Is there any info about progress of construction?

You cannot have a station which is outstanding for the price of a just as ordinary station can you?


Just build them modern and all based on the same station model(like they do in Madrid). This way you will get good modern stations and you won't spend huge amounts of money building them.

Ok, but won't that simply mean that all lines will look dull and uninteresting? I mean, isn't diversity a part of today's modern cities?

Well, if you take as an example Madrid (which I refered to in my post), I think stations look modern and beautifull, and not dull.

Also, it's not an art galery, it's a metro system. People want to fell in a nice environment with modernly designed stations, with full acess to disabled people and with escalators instead of regular staris (a problem in Lisbon... lack of escalators).
Air conditioning in the stations is something which is highly apreciated by passengers too...

That's what matters... and not if the station has some kind of art expositure.... that comes next....

Very nice. One of my favourites too. Very modern and even nice stations.

How fast does the subway go there? In Oslo, the speedlimit is 70km/t.

Well I don't agree. There's a saying in Lisbon that goes like this: If you haven't got time to visit an art gallery, then visit Lisbon's subway.

^I must say that I like the new stations recently opened in the yellow line, like the one you show above.

They are not full of art, but they look modern and beautifull, and I like that!
