Project Description

The project comprises the construction of an APM type elevated transportation system that runs along 17.8km of rail elevated over viaducts and is split into five Structural Units. Fourteen stations provide access to the transportation system throughout the route, and these are split into five different types of stations according to the needs of transport, use and quantity of services like so:

(i) Type 1: “Central Station”. Belén Central Station is an intermodal passenger station of the APM system that provides direct access and a link to users of the system with conventional urban and inter-municipal transport. This station also houses the operation centres of the system, large shopping areas, access areas to the transportation system, a passenger waiting area and a public and private parking area for vehicles.

(ii) Type 2 “Satellite or Transfer Stations”. Transfer stations of Porvenir, Tablazo and Glorieta JMC. These intermodal passenger stations provide direct access and a link to users of the system with conventional urban and inter-municipal transport. The central station differs as it does not have shopping areas or parking areas for private vehicles.

(iii) Types 3, 4 and 5 “Station Type I, II and III”. These types are reserved for the rest of the conventional passenger stations, and intended to provide pedestrian access to the transportation system. All the passenger stations will be type I except the Transit Station, which will be Type II, and Hospital San Vicente will be Type III. The only difference between these three types is the geometry.
