Prolongation of the Metro de Madrid

The Autonomous Community of Madrid has awarded FCC Construcción a contract valued at 87 million euros to build a 2.8 km section of the metro from San Cristóbal de los Ángeles to Villaverde Alto.

This section is a continuation of the Legazpi-San Cristóbal de los Ángeles section which was also awarded to FCC Construcción recently.

The entire section will be built in tunnel using earth pressure balance (EPB) technology and lined with prefabricated 32 cm thick sections, leaving an interior diameter of 8.43 m. It includes the construction of two stations, one in Villaverde Alto, connected to the RENFE local train station.
