According to the approved expansion plan, the lines from Rato (Yellow line) to Cais do Sodré (Green line) will be connected, including the construction of two new stations: Estrela and Santos.
This network expansion will reach parts of the city still not covered by the Metro. It will link to other public transport operators, namely CP’s Lisboa-Cascais railway network and river ports connecting Lisboa to Montijo, Seixal and Almada. This increase in public transport supply will comprise new connections and the improvement of existing ones.
The future Estrela station will serve a residential area of the city, where public transport offer is presently limited to buses. It will be located at the top of Calçada da Estrela/south edge of Jardim da Estrela. Santos station will be found on the block’s west side, defined by Av. D. Carlos I, Rua das Francesinhas, Rua dos Industriais and Travessa do Pasteleiro (between ISEG and Largo da Esperança). The station will have two accesses: at Av. D. Carlos I (Largo da Esperança) and at Travessa do Pasteleiro.
The technical visit will include a tour inside the metro tunnel under construction.
