New photos.



I remember... dark green currently in service (since April 2011). light green on works. Rest of lines, projects.

All photos are about light green line on map.




Pza. Paraíso. Just after station Gran Vía, where phase 1 finish

I will need a webcam instead of some photos because it could be the point that changes more day to day...

Paseo de la Independencia.
Some rails have been set

How to cross the avenue for pedestrians. They will made these points later.



alserrod: Oct 11


Tramway shoulders are been set here. This is the point at P.Independencia where they finish (today)





"Plaza de España" station

Take a look!. Here the distance between both rails is wider because platform will be in the middle of the avenue.
Rails are set just in the beginning of the station.



alserrod: Oct 11


Plaza de España

It is curious but even if before and after this square there are a lot of works but here few ones.



alserrod: Oct 11


Coso. It was the first point in city centre with rails set.

We can see which will be the tramway platform. Site for pedestrians will be a little wider than before (the photo is taken in the narrowest point of the street)




alserrod: Oct 2011


This is the point where rails finish at Coso today. Take a look about the pedestrian pass over them while works.



alserrod: Oct 2011


At the end of Coso they are still working on the platform




"Cesar Augusto" station

Station will be located at the end of the photo





St. James Bridge ("Murallas" station is on the end of photo).
Here is where Ebro river is crossed



Benares: Sep 2011


Just after St. James bridge and before "La Chimenea" station



Benares: Sep 2011


Just besides "Pablo Neruda" station, works have these facilities (they could put them out of the road... )

The best thing is the glass. XD
I was looking if my car or one of my partners' one was crossing the roundabout near Santiago's bridge.
Very advanced in that zone, but... will they end before what was expected?

It is expected to end until Pza. España station on December 2012 and the full line in April 2013.

Looking the photos... the biggest point on works is just in the beginning: Pza. Paraiso, but every day I see a lot of people working there.

It is a special point because it is a square over a river which goes underground. They are refurbishing at the same time the "brigde" over the river as well as tubes and wires under the asphalt.

I don´t thing so, I´d rather think so.
It will take some time for me getting accustomed to not seeing the fountain.
Was it really necessary to destroy such a fountain?

The fountain wasn't historic.

As an example, several years ago, I was a kid, it wasn't a fountain but a little "forest".

The Caesar Augusto statue was placed there. After the update of the square, that statue was placed near the Roman walls (which area was refurbished in the same dates)

My father and grandfather told me that before the little forest they had a different fountain but smaller.

Too many designs for one of the most centrical squares in the city... but for me it will be the third one (and absolutely different one to another)



In other way, what I am worried is if they have considered an extension to line 3 (Sagasta avenue). It is supossed to have the same rails at Independencia avenue but it should have there a rail cross.

The design doesn't seem to have space for this cross.

It is a new design and surprising because right now, the company is not replacing the oldest buses on service.

It is also curious that except in a few cases, all new buses have started in the lines with less frequencies. In this case, the Line 27 runs once per hour and in summer, once every 30 minutes.

Finally... for five days (until tomorrow).

It is a commuter train that runs west-east on the city, coming from 14 km away and crossing the city. It was opened in 2008 but the main station was not started.

It was awful to see how trains came from away of city and run on city centre with non-stop.

This station is exactly under the current tram route opened last April 2011 (station of Fernando el catolico on the map).

Works keep on and today a local newspaper says that it could start working before ending this year.

I enclose some photos of the station. It is very small... but very, very close to centre.

España: 9,5 min
Aragón: 11 min
Gran Vía: 12 min
Fernando el católico: 14 min
San Francisco: 15 min

A nice video about a two stops journey in Zaragoza tramway.

It starts at Gran Via, crosses the avenue (pedestrian area) very slowly and keeps on for two stops.
