This simple and comfortable infrastructure brings residents of the district of Mirasierra in Madrid closer to the city centre in a matter of minutes. The new facility makes use of the Commuter line passing between Pitis and Ramón y Cajal stations, such that the station –with estimated traffic of almost 10,000 passengers– will be connected to Commuter lines C-7 and C-8. The area around the station comprises a series of residential buildings, green areas and sports facilities. The halt will service the district of Fuencarral-El Pardo with over 220,000 inhabitants and will improve links with the southeast thanks to its connection with line 9 of the metro.
