1) There is actually a single line divided into a Y at the west, no clear expansion schedule exists I think
2) Both sides
3) I believe underground
4) I don't know
5) the eastern terminus
6) there is no suburban rail in Brasília
7) somewhere in the western part

1) According to the Metrô-DF website:

Quote:
Novas estações

O metrô de Brasília está em constante expansão. Atualmente, restam apenas três estações no Plano Piloto e uma em Taguatinga a serem concluídas. Em 2009, os moradores da Asa Sul ganharam mais duas estações que estavam em obras desde abril de 2008: 102 Sul e 112 Sul. Em 2010, foi a vez do Guará, que ganhou mais uma Estação. Importante observar que a estação Estrada Parque, localizada em Águas Claras, já está concluída, e aguarda apenas o adensamento populacional na região para entrar em operação comercial.

As obras em andamento são um passo a mais na conclusão da linha 1 do METRÔ-DF, que liga a Zona Central de Brasília às cidades de Ceilândia e Samambaia, passando pelo Guará, Águas Claras e Taguatinga. O sistema metroviário do DF, no entanto, não vai parar por aí. Atualmente, os técnicos da Companhia trabalham nos projetos de complementação do traçado inicial da linha, incrementando o trecho de Ceilândia com duas estações e o de Samambaia com mais duas. Além disso, o METRÔ-DF também chegará à Asa Norte. A primeira estação será localizada nas proximidades do Setor Comercial Norte.
There is no scheduled date for the completion of Line 1 (branches Green and Orange), but there are stations under construction, and other stations planned.

2) I will call them central and lateral platforms, because the system is right-handed and this maybe cause some confusion.

-Lateral platforms: Central, Galeria, 102 Sul, 104 Sul (not concluded), 106 Sul (not concluded), 108 Sul, 110 Sul (not concluded), 112 Sul, 114 Sul, Terminal Asa Sul, Shopping, Guará, Arniqueiras, Concessionárias, Estrada Parque (not concluded), Centro Metropolitano and Ceilândia Centro. Total of 17 stations.

-Central platforms: Feira, Águas Claras (two central platforms, one for each direction of the two branches), Taguatinga Sul, Furnas, Samambaia Sul, Ceilândia Sul, Guariroba and Ceilândia Norte. Total of 8 stations.

-Both central and lateral platforms: Samambaia and Ceilândia. Just two stations (the current terminal stations).

So most of Metrô-DF stations have lateral platforms.

3) Most stations are in ground level, although some stations are in plateaus or trenchs.

4) The stations are not much deep nor much high (because there are not elevated stations), but underground stations are not more than 18 meters deep.

5) Estação Central.

6) Already answered: there is no suburban rail network.

7) There is one maintenance depot. It is inside a triangle formed by Águas Claras, Taguatinga Sul and Praça do Relógio stations. After Samambaia and Ceilândia, there are small depots just for parking the trains.

Can anybody post here a map of future Brasilia tram with all line, I mean a complete map with all planned lines?
So before the next football world cup, we can see both tram & metro in Brasilia. It proves clearly that metro is not the ultimate solution of pollution control. The last word is the old friend tram.

The tram is just a poor version of metro.

The corridor where the tram will be present have not enough demand to make a metro. So in this case, it is the best option, not a "poor metro".

Today, Justice has cancelled the contract of the project of VLT.

New governor of Brasilia will not contest the decision, so new licitation will be quick.

The rolling stock of future tram is same as Mulhouse tram. That stock has recently introduced in Melbourne also, and is running also in Buenos Aires as Eastern tram.

To think of the state of today's schooling . . . Pleez! Its metro looks as utilitarian as the banal reason behind the city's very existence
