Ferrovial picked to expand Porto Metro

27 Jul 20 A consortium of Ferrovial Construction and Portuguese company Alberto Couto Alves has won €288m (£262m) of work to expand Porto Metro by more than 6.5km.

The project consists of two contracts: extension of the Yellow Line and construction of a new circular Pink Line.

It also includes the construction of a viaduct, a 770m-long tunnel and three stations.

The second contract involves the construction of a new circular line, the Pink Line, measuring 3.1km and linking Praça da Liberdade and Casa da Música. Four new stations and three ventilation shafts will be built and the team will also install the tracks and catenary.

The work is expected to begin in the second half of this year. The Yellow Line extension is due to be completed in 34 months, while construction of the Pink Line is set to take at most 42 months.
