Venezuela's railroad network keeps on growing! Great Under Construction pics!

Thanks to Alvaro127 for the compilation,

National Railway system keeps on expanding!





Tramo Ezequiel Zamora Etapa I

Tiene como objetivo inmediato la prestación del servicio como sistema de transporte suburbano para los habitantes de los Valles del Tuy en sus desplazamientos hacia y desde la ciudad de Caracas. Una vez que la segunda etapa de este proyecto este construida entre Puerto Cabello y los Valles del Tuy, este ferrocarril suburbano pasara a formar parte de la Red Ferroviaria Nacional.


Este tramo es de suma utilidad para aliviar el congestionamiento de la ciudad capital vinculando una zona mayor del área metropolitana, con servicios públicos y terrenos aptos para el desarrollo urbano.

La estación Terminal Caracas se conectará a la Estación La Rinconada de la Línea 3 del Metro de Caracas, mediante operaciones integradas que facilitan la transferencia entre los dos sistemas.

This Station will connect with caracas' Line3 metro station

Éste sistema está conformado por 27 viaductos.

I realize that is in spanish, but it is just so much information, that translating it all is incredibly overwhelming. One can still get a feel of it through the images however. If anyone wants a certain part translated copy and paste it and I will gladly help.

Ok, apparently those are going REALLY under construction. No matter the features of the civil works or the old looking of the trains as long the whole system works reach completion before i turn 58.

A country with fossil fuel wealth (oil I think!) that wants to use its new wealth to benefit more than just a few already very wealthy global corporations.

I wish countries like Britain, Australia and the USA had leaders like this.

Venezuela should Maglev their system (though it is expensive).......although i think the infrastructure looks good.....especially appealing are the elevated tracks over and through the rainforest.

It's amazing what can be achieved with vision and money. We have money in Canada, but no vision....

Very impressive, how many lines and stations are being built (also route K/M)? Whats the cost and timescales? How fast will the trains go?

Very impressive. My only misgiving is that in the pictures, the stations seem to be some way from the core of the urban masses which they serve.
