Comsa, Comsa Industrial and Fergrupo -Comsa´s subsidiary in Portugal- will execute, together with Zagope, the expansion project for the Green and Yellow lines of the Lisbon Metro.
The awarding of the contract, which amounts to 70 million Euros, is in response to the tender for Lot 4 for the completion of the extension of the two metro lines, and it will be carried out consecutively to the development works of lots 1 and 2 for the construction of the Rato/Santos and Santos/Cais do Sodré sections, and lot 3, relating to the Campo-Grande viaducts.
The Comsa - Zagope consortium will build a new 1.9 km section between the Rato and Cais de Sodré stations -including track, catenary and systems-, two new stations (Estrela and Santos) and two new ventilation shafts. In addition, it will also carry out the adaptation at Cais de Sodré station, where a new vestibule will be built, and the shaft located next to Rato station.
The works contemplate the union of the Green and Yellow lines to form a circular line. Lisbon Metro, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, expects the circular line to enter service in 2024.
