New stations west from Mixcoac are "Valentin Campa", "Álvaro Obregón" and "Observatorio", my last map was a bit wrong marking a station called "Alta Tensión".

On other news:

City Major announces works on Metro Line 5
June 9th, 2015

The head of the Federal District, Miguel Angel Mancera, said that a tunnel will be built on the stretch between Terminal Aerea and Oceania stations, on Metro Line 5, which will aim to reduce the slope in that place. Investment will reach 800 to 900 million pesos (MXN).

So, Miguel Angel Mancera said there is a need to resolve definitively the risks presented in the slope, because in this area, there have been differentiated top-ground submergence; this in a brief interview that the Mexico City major gave after the presentation of the International Box Tournament

Also, the head of the Federal District Government said that there will be a review of a series of works that aim to improve the transport system, in which they are considering the work to level the roads affected and also the work for station rehabilitation.

It is noteworthy that, after the last May 4th crash, STC asked immediately to correct the slope located in the Terminal Aerea - Oceania interstation.

Mexico City reopens metro line after repairs
Wednesday, December 02, 2015



LINE 12 of the Mexico City metro is fully operational again after nearly two years of repairs to track which resulted in the closure of 11 stations on the elevated section of the 20-station east-west line

The 24.5km line, which connects Mixcoac with Tláhuac, opened on October 30 2012, but the 11 stations were closed in March 2014 following the discovery of serious track defects which nearly caused the derailment of a train

The programme includes extending the 40 steel-wheel trainsets which operate on Line A from six to nine cars, which will increase capacity by 33%, according STC Director General Jorge Gaviño. Two extended trainsets were flagged off by head of the city government Miguel Ángel Mancera on January 10
