Here you will find information, graphic documentation, photographs, etc. of this work.
Commissioning: May 24, 2007
The route runs between the M-30 and the M-40. It begins in Sanchinarro on c/Príncipe Carlos and ends, once it has crossed the A-1 road below, in Las Tablas, at the intersection of Palas de Rey and Avda. del Camino de Santiago, next to Las Tables for the expansion of Line 10 of the Madrid Metro, known as Metronorte.
Next, the route turns in the direction of the A-1 motorway, by means of a curve to the left with a radius of 60 m, to continue with a straight alignment until the end of the Line (kp 5,401), coming to the surface -once crossing the A-1 highway- at pk 4,606. In this last section, already on the surface, and parallel to c/Palas de Rey, there is the only level crossing with the road traffic of c/Valcarlos, located between pk 4,821 and pk 4,842, the Palas de Rey station (pk 4,871 to pk 4,916) and the LasTablas station (pk 5,306 to pk 5,351), which is located at the height of the Las Tablas station of the METRONORTE line.
As far as slopes are concerned, the greatest ramp is reached at pk 4,346 with a value of 6%, the greatest slope is reached at pk 3,388 with a value of 6%.
|Total length of the section||2,864 Km|
|Number of stations||
A ventilation shaft has also been built between the Blasco Ibáñez and María Tudor stations (pk 3,386), a ventilation+pumping shaft under c/Ana de Austria (pk 4,111) and two pumping shafts, the first in c /Príncipe Carlos at the beginning of the tunnel zone (pk 2,675), and the last one after María Tudor station (pk 3,826).
In section 2 there is an emergency exit at the Blasco Ibáñez station.
Simultaneously with the execution of the works, instrumentation and auscultation monitoring was carried out to control the movements of the structures and the behavior of the adjoining land, to ensure its adaptation to the assumptions and calculation models.
The station has been run using the system cut-and-cosee, with perimeter walls made by continuous screens, or screen-walls, 1 m thick, lined with vitrified sheet metal panels and italfilm.
The length of the platform is 58 m with a width of 10,5 m.
The station has pedestrian passenger access and an elevator. Its exterior shape is specified with a rectangular prism with a metal structure and laminated glass enclosure, similar to those located on the Metrosur Line.
This station will have an emergency exit at the opposite end of the platform from the pedestrian passenger access.
Mary Tudor Station
It is located in the park that is surrounded by María Tudor street (pk 3,579 to 3,743). It is an underground and through station, with a central platform. This station has two entrances to provide better service and due to the proximity of a large shopping center that will be a great attraction for travellers.
Being located in a park without major space constraints, the main body of the station has been arranged with a length of 164 m and a width between screens of 16,7 m.
The vault is materialized by a reinforced concrete slab 0,8 m deep formed by three straight sections in the shape of an arch.
It has been executed by the system cut-and-cover, with perimeter walls made by continuous screens, or screen-walls, 1 m thick, lined with vitrified sheet metal panels and italfilm.
The length of the platform is 67 m with a width of 10,5 m.
The station has two pedestrian passenger accesses and an elevator. Its exterior shape is specified with a rectangular prism with a metal structure and a laminated glass enclosure similar to those located on the Metrosur Line. These accesses have a line of windbreak doors after the roller gate. In addition to having a lift from the street level to the platform, it has four escalators, two in each of the two station access bandstands, and two fixed ones at each end of the platform. The difference in level between the accesses and the platform is 8,36 m.
Within this station, it is worth mentioning the landscape restoration that was carried out on the surface, with the environmental reintegration of the area affected by the works of the María Tudor park.
Palas del Rey Stations y The tables
The typology of the two surface stations of section II, which are in the Las Tablas PAU, is of platforms on both sides of the trace. Both stops have a 45 m long platform with two 5 m long access ramps, one on each side of the platform.
The bus stop canopy consists of two 5 m long metal profile modules. In one of them are located the cabinets with the control and communications equipment, energy, tickets, signals and airline and electricity. The another is dedicated to the traveler, with a series of seats.
En As far as materials are concerned, both the platform flooring and the edge of the platform are made of granite.
