A major €490 million (US $622.86 million) scheme for work on Sao Paulo’s Metro has been awarded to Spanish contractor Sacyr.

The company, working through its subsidiary Somague, will lead a joint venture with Galvao Engenharia and SA Paulista for a section of the Green Line between Vila Prudente and Dutra.

Among the main elements of the project will be the creation of a 7.8km double-track tunnel using a tunnel boring machine. There will also be a further series of tunnels measuring 1.8km each for parking convoys, construction of Vila Formosa station and its platform superstructure.

In addition, Somague is also involved with three further Sao Paulo Metro projects including construction of three raised-stations valued at €55 million (US $69.91 million) on lot three of line 15. It is also carrying out work on a further four stations for a further €55 million (US $69.91 million) on lot 1 of line 15.
