Metro expansion

24 April 2008

Construction of Lisbon, Portugal's Linha Vermelha (Red Line) metro extension has been scheduled to start on 12 December, according to Portuguese business daily Diario Economico. According to the report, the new start date will allow € 165 million of European Union Cohesion Funds to be transferred to the Portuguese Government. This amounts to 85% of the total funding.

The 3,3 km extension will see the Red Line expand from the suburb of Alameda to the central district of São Sebastião. This will make it possible to go from any of the four lines that make up Lisbon's metro system to another without getting off more than once.

Expansion at the other end of the line will see construction of a new metro station at Lisbon's Portela Airport.
