Here you will find information on the actions carried out by the Community of Madrid since its creation on this subject.

To provide service to the Chamartín railway station (inaugurated in 1976) and coinciding with the celebration of the World Cup in Spain, the Fuencarral-Nuevos Ministerios section of 10 km and 1982 stations was inaugurated on June 5,8, 7. The works that began in 1972 lasted for 10 years. On December 23, 1986, line 8 was extended by 1,6 km on a single track from Nuevos Ministerios to Avenida de América, thus accessing the station with the highest number of transfers and correspondence as it is a nerve center of the network.
