I want to thank you people for updating this thread. I have a huge interest in Buenos Aires, being half Argentinian (other half Dutch), and having spent about two weeks there last year (more in my earlier youth). I really want to see how it develops, especially as there is less and less going on here in Europe with the global financial crisis and eurocrisis.
My Spanish not being 100% up to snuff it's very exhausting trying to do so on the Argentinian forums (which aren't the most structured). So I want to implore proud Portenos to keep updating this thread to show of their great city!

Another question; it seems fairly obvious to me that Buenos Aires needs to heavily expand it's subway system (which is quite good but for example smaller in mileage than what we have in Rotterdam a city 1/10th the size). Especially in the area south of Autopista 25 de mayo, to make this more feasible has Buenos Aires ever considered building elevated lines? I know it's not ideal but I think an elavated line is better than no line, and the Chicago loves it's elevated system. Most of the Rotterdam system is elevated as well and it's comfortable, quiet and gives great views of the city on some sections.

Well if Argentines don't do it I'll try

Few major projects in BA

Burrying of the Sarmiento line



From what I understand is that they announced they are going to bury the Sarmiento commuter rail line in three phases over the next 46 months. And they have equipped a fairly huge TBM to do it





I used the Sarmiento line once last September when I was in BA to get from Moreno to Flores (Capital Federal) and while not particularly slow it ran completely at grade in very densely populated areas so it must be quite a nuisance for traffic. Hopefully they can increase speed and frequency if it runs underground and it will be a great boon for the areas and traffic trough which it ran. It's not clear to me wether they are going to integrate the system more with the metro/subte (line E) but I hope they will, currently the systems are totally separate. Both physically and commercially (tickets are not transferable).

A mega real estate project, valued at $800 million, it starts in Vicente Lopez. Powered by businessman Carlos De Narvaez, the proposal "Alrio" gradually begins to take shape.

These days, they've already begun building the first of six towers of which the initiative consists, where proximity and view of the Rio de la Plata are key to attract potential buyers. The venture is located in an area considered as strategic, just meters from Del Libertador Avenue and General Paz.

'faraonic'? What are you trying to say?
I would think you would applaud the burying of the Sarmiento line. As you just made clear how much you hate surface/elevated lines

Thanks for the great updates Nsch !
Buenos Aires is positively booming. What I was really curious about is if the metro area was booming in population as well? Does anyone have reliable population growth figures for greater BA of the last 10/20 years?

Yes, but it's not necessary. Only to Haedo station the rest not.

Id does seem like they share your hatred of surface lines :p The way they are burrying the line all the way into the suburbs of Moreno. I agree that that is overkill and wastefull. Better to spend to money on burrying other lines closer to CF.

Do you know (or anyone) what the frequency's and speed is like on the Sarmiento line? I don't really remember (or paid attention last winter) when I rode it. And do you think when they burry it they are going to turn it into a metro? Seems kind of watefull to built an underground and not have it do metro frequencies or speeds. But I think they will do it (eventually).
