Well, after a very long while Santo Domingo metro allows being seing inside. Here a complete report browght by ORAD from stations located on the East side of the city:

Saludos Metrófilos!!!

Mis muy queridos hermanos, estamos de vuelta con un update de los trabajos de construcción de la Fase 1 de la Línea 2 del Metro de Santo Domingo.
Tuve la oportunidad de hacer un recorrido a pies por el tramo de las estaciones ubicadas al este de la avenida Máximo Gómez iniciando en la estación 20 ubicada en el puente Francisco del Rosario Sánchez y finalizando en la estación de transferencia de la avenida Máximo Gómez con J.F.K.

Para el recorrido no contaba con una cámara disponible ya que la mía necesita una reparación y no tuve tiempo de conseguir otra prestada. De todos modos, celular en mano como en los viejos tiempos me dispuse a caminar los casi 5 kilómetros de túneles que dividen estas 6 estaciones de la Línea 2.

Como verán, el nivel de avance de las estaciones no es homogéneo. La mayoría está en fase de terminación (las primeras cuatro desde la avenida San Martín avanzando hacia el este) mientras que la estación 19 (avenida Padre Castellanos con la calle Respaldo 8) es la más atrasada ya que fue la última en iniciar los trabajos y además ha debido esperar a que se levante un segmento del futuro elevado de la Padre Castellanos en ese lugar. La estación 20 está más avanzada aunque todavía hay mucho trabajo por hacer en el interior y en la recuperación de las avenidas y áreas verdes que la rodean.

Veamos:


Trabajos en la Estación #20, Puente F. R. Sánchez (Estación Eduardo Brito)

Entorno de la estación

La estación ubicada en el trébol de las avenidas Padre Castellanos y Francisco del Rosario Sánchez, justo al inicio del puente del mismo nombre, comparte muchas características con la construida en el trébol de la autopista Duarte con Gregorio Luperón. Es una estructura de 3 niveles: el primero a la altura de la avenida Padre Castellanos, el segundo al nivel de la avenida Francisco del Rosario Sánchez y un tercer nivel soterrado que coincide con el túnel del Metro.

En consecuencia, al igual que en el Km. 9 esta edificación tendrá accesos peatonales en el segundo y tercer nivel y se podrá acceder hasta el nivel de andenes desde el lobby principal ubicado en el segundo nivel. Como verán en las fotos, allí encontré la excavadora DOSCO MK3-A que realizaba los trabajos de la cola de maniobras al este de la estación.

Interior de la estación y túnel minero

Queda mucho trabajo de terminación en el interior de la estructura, sobre todo en el nivel de andenes. El lobby principal ubicado al nivel de la avenida Francisco del Rosario Sánchez se encuentra más avanzado que el resto de la estructura, mientras en el túnel hacia la estación 19 los obreros trabajaban en la instalación de las tuberías de drenaje.

Trabajos en la estación #19, calle Respaldo 8 (Estación Manuel de Jesús Galván)

Siendo la estación más atrasada del conjunto, la estación 19 aún no tiene listo el nivel del mezzanine ni las escaleras que conectan el nivel de la calle con el interior ni con los andenes. Es probable que la OPRET inicie las operaciones de la L2 hasta la estación 18 (calle Josefa Brea) ya que en mi opinión terminar las últimas dos estaciones puede tardar hasta fin de año y el resto de la L2 está prácticamente listo al menos en cuanto a la obra física.

El túnel que conecta las estaciones 18 y 19 ya está terminado y solo restan los trabajos de instalación de las catenarias y el cableado eléctrico, que podrían estar listos en pocas semanas.

Trabajos en la estación #18, calle Josefa Brea (Estación Horacio Vásquez)

Como puede observarse en las imágenes, la estación se encuentra prácticamente terminada y los trabajos se concentran en las instalaciones eléctricas y otros detalles menores. Como recuerdan la estación estuvo abierta al público durante la pasada Feria del Libro por lo que pudimos verla en detalle gracias a Tom y otros foristas que la visitaron en esos días.

De igual forma pueden ver el nivel de terminación del tramo de túnel hacia la estación 17 ubicada en la avenida Duarte, al que solo le falta la instalación de la catenaria en dirección oeste.

Trabajos en la estación #17, Ave. Duarte (Estación Ramón Cáceres)

La estación Ramón Cáceres, una de las más importantes de la L2 cuenta con facilidades a nivel de la calle y una subestación eléctrica en su lado sur. El interior cuenta con revestimientos en Vítrex de color blanco y la distribución estándar de las nuevas estaciones; acceso desde la calle, mezzanine y nivel de andenes. El túnel hacia la estación del Quinto Centenario se encuentra totalmente terminado.

Trabajos en la estación #16, Expreso Quinto Centenario (Estación Mauricio Báez)

La estación ubicada junto a la escuela República Dominicana está prácticamente terminada. Aunque no se utilizó durante la pasada Feria del Libro, su interior posee el mismo nivel de terminación que las estaciones abiertas al público en esos días.

Trabajos en la estación #15, Ave. San Martín (Estación Cnel. Fernández Domínguez)

Con esta estación concluye el recorrido por las obras al este de la Máximo Gómez. Al igual que las tres estaciones anteriores esta estructura está muy avanzada y podría entrar en operación perfectamente antes que concluya la actual administración. El tramo de túnel que la separa de la estación de Transferencia de la avenida Máximo Gómez ya está completo, exceptuando algunos detalles en proceso de instalación.

But Brazil has a very long story building metro stations so is normal to have all this old stations buildt several years ago wich look today a little out of fashion. Santo Domingo metro is a very up today project disigned following all newer concepts developed by European desingner to keep those spaces as conforteable as good looking.

But is realy nice to have a metro sistem wicht resist being compared with older sistems. Santo Domingo metro has a good base of desing, its stations are mostly confortable and easy to use. To have only two lines and achieve reconigtion for its cuality is a good step ahead.

There are also subways under construction in Quito, Panama City and a few provincial towns in Brazil.

By the way, has it been noted that the largest concentration of Dominicans outside Santo Domingo rides some of the most disgusting subways in America through upper Manhattan and the Bronx?

UPDATE ON SANTO DOMINGO'S METRO - LINE II

Hey guys! I will post a few of the many photos taken by our very own Orad of the stations already finished in the first phase of construction. All the photos were originally posted in the Dominican Republic Forum, but I will link each post directly. That way, if you want to see the full set of photos and the explanation (in Spanish) from the master himself (lol), you will be able to do so. The links to the original posts will be placed at the end of each post in this thread.

Thanks for your comment!

The President wants the Metro to be fully functioning now in March and the head of the team building the Metro said that it will be functioning later this month once the last few details are done.

Its only days away, but I don't know what day exactly.
