Spain: Málaga Metro Extended to City Centre

Metro de Málaga has inaugurated its extension of the Málaga Metro to connect the network with the city centre.

The 1.7-kilometre extension connects the most populated areas of Málaga with the historic centre and serves two new stations: Guadalmedina and Atarazanas.

It is anticipated that this new section will double user demand for the metro from around 7 million passengers to 14 million passengers each year.

Since its inauguration in 2014, the network has been equipped with Alstom’s CBTC Urbalis 400 signalling technology.
