Lisbon Metro Circular Line Underway

Not this year, as originally planned, but by 2024, the line should connect Cais do Sodré to Rato with stops in Santos and Estrela.

Work to create a circular line on the Lisbon Metro has begun with the aim of opening it to the public by 2024, Publico reports. The project will connect Rato to Cais do Sodré, with new stations in Santos and Estrela, to create a new, connected Linha Verde.

The whole project is set to cost 210.2 million euros, with the first step — the expansion from Rato to Santos — already awarded to Zagope-Construção e Engenharia for 48.6 million euros plus IVA. There are several other contracts out, with work also needed on Linha Amarela to redirect it to Telheiras at Campo Grande, giving room for the new circular Linha Verde.

While late 2024 may seem close, this project was originally set to finish by the end of 2021.
