Madrid has the best gay pride in world by "TripOut Gay Travel" internauts for example.

Thanks a lot Chuchero, I understood the political tricks adn so on, when I was saying that Madrid is conservative I was meaning that for the works they are carrying out now, Madrid metro could have specified the use of glass fibre, in order to semplifying the TBM breakthrough, while from the pictures I saw it seems they are using common building tecniques.
Ciao Antonio.
PD: in any case please let me know when they decide the winner of the job.

this is amazing, I got a few questions....hope u guys can answer them

1. As far as financing the project, was this financed by the Dom. Rep. Govt out of its own budget or was it taken as a credit from some bank?

2. How much is the cost?

3. Did Santo Dominogo have a metro before this or is this the first.

4. How much of it is underground, or above ground?

Hi Sarajevo, the answers to you questions:

1) The first Metro line was built with a 50% of funds from the Government budget (fiscal years 2005-2008) and 50% from bank loans (basically for Power Generation, Electromechanics, Rolling Stock and Tracks)

2) Total cost for Line 1 was around US$750 millions (14.5 km and 16 stations)

3) Santo Domingo is building its second metro line. The first line is operational since january 2009 and the first phase of Line 2 is scheduled to start operation on 2012.

4) First Line is 60% underground and the rest is almost completely elevated. The second line will be 100% underground.

The train is moving 60,000 passenger per day, that is half of the amount it is suposed to move when tributary buses begin operations moving people between destinations and train stations. But the line was disigned to allow more than 180,000 passenger per day before getting level of congestion. The idea is that line keep working eficiently for near one hundred years.

The only definition i find to describe the mean of transportation is using santo domingo before the metro is ¨caos¨. The city has buses of all kind and sices, cars and motorcicle serving as means of transport. The state only has 8% of the market so the rest is being operated by private investors.

That has diferents levels wicht depends on period of time too. The first step on that schedule was to have a means of trasnportation to cover all the demand created by passanger moving north-south and biseverse, that number of passanger is in between 120.000 and 180.000 passanger per day. It is suposed to reach that nomber on the first ten years on comercial opoerations. But that depends on the buses working to take passanger in and out of train stations, that part of the sistem is not jet ready.

The line was designed to get its higher level of congestion when it reaches 200.000 passanger per day that is the highest ridership it is suposed to resist operating but with a lo of problems of ocupancy, weating time, etc. That number is happening in 80 or 90 years....this are more or less the designd numbers.

Me refiero a la estación Generalísimo Máximo Gómez, ubicada en los terrenos de la antigua Fábrica de Cemento a orillas del río Isabela, en la zona de La Zurza. Esta impresionante estructura fue construida en acero, aluminio y cristal, sobre bases de hormigón armado. Es la única estación a nivel de la calle de la Línea 1 y junto a ella se encuentran los Patios y Talleres del Metro.

Ciao Orad,
must admit S. Domingo metro it's really gorgeous compared to other metro lines I know around the world. Stations shown in your pics seems very clean and from an architectural point of view very gorgeous.
Hope to be there soon for the second line under construction, so that I'll be able to enjoy line one too.
Ciao, Antonio.

Building this metro was a big gamble for Santo Domingo. I'm wondering, has it paid off?
