RIO DE JANEIRO | Subway

http://tgvbr.forumvila.com/tgvbr-about90.html

All pics taken by myself.

When you click a thumbnail, a whole thread full of pics of that station will appear.

I posted some of these stations pics on the brazilian forum. I didn't post'em all because of the flood.

From many English & Portuguese websites, I knew that Rio de Janeiro is now planning four more subway lines (reminding the 2016 Summer Olympics).

Line 1 & Line 2 is already running.
Line 3 will run from Carioca to Guaxindiba.
Line 4 will run from General Osório to Jardim Oceânico.
Line 5 will run from I.do Governador to Santos Dumont.
Line 6 will run from Galeão International Airport with Barra de Tijuca.

Can anybody post here a published or self-drawn map of the future network with names of all stations, how it will look after all six lines?

I’m waiting for reply eagerly.

Beside the subway, Rio de Janeiro also has a tramway system. After 98% of route closing, 3 routes are still remaining. The tram is now mostly traveled by tourists than daily passengers. Recently, I found a very good link - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_San...storic_Tramway

Also please try to answer my questions written on 2nd post. Waiting for reply.

You can check this map, that includes the original plans for the Metro and BRT System:

http://img101.imageshack.us/img101/1692/48307148.jpg

However, it's very unlikely that all these lines are going to be built.

Line 4 will no longer have a connection in Botafogo, and the plans to build a Ring in Line 1 also seems to have been abandone. That will heavily overcrowd Line 1. Up to 2016, the idea is to built from General Osorio straight up to Jardim Oceanico. Techinically speaking, Line 1 and Line 4 would be a single, giant line.

Line 3 works were supposed to begin last year, only on the other side of Guanabara Bay. The underwater passage is an urgent need, but won't happen soon.

Line 6 is likely to be replaced by an BRT, according to the Olympic BID Plans. It may be extend up to the Intl Airport.

And finally, Line 5 seems to have very low popularity (it only links the two airports, basically). However, some studies are happening now, and a Maglev (projected by RJ Federal University) may be used in this route. It would be a nice way to test their new technology, and would be part of the Harbour Revitalization.

I read that Line 4 is now under construction. Is there a chance that one of the routes for Line 6 will also start soon? That seems to be the next most important project for the network.

Should all six lines of the Rio de Janeiro Metro be completed before 2016 or will there be more lines/extensions coming after then?

No one knows, only line 4 is under construction, the future of Rio's metro is obscure.
