Alcantara Stone™ has participated at the remodeling of line 3, providing its exclusive materials for this emblematic project, which was opened in 1936 with a distance of 1.4 km. which in 1963 grew until, 6.2 Km. with 11 new stations between Moncloa and Legazpi. Madrid has one of the best transport means in the world, with the second largest subway network in Europe -2.4 million passengers per day. Precisely for the very intensive use, all the materials used in these types of facilities, and above all the passable, must comply with strict rules and physical-mechanical features, to ensure a time of great durability, while retaining their magnificent aesthetic qualities.
In the course of several months have made a considerable effort from all organizations involved in this project to refurbish and modernize these stations, following the guidelines of usability, design and unification, marked by Metro de Madrid and Mintra.
The work in the yellow line (line 3) has an estimated investment of 319 million of Euros financed by the Madrid Community and Madrid Town Hall.
