The new Gran Vía metro station, in the heart of Madrid, opened in July under the replica of the historic 1920s pavilion designed by the architect Antonio Palacios.
The new station has three levels. In the first, there is a large vestibule that will grow from 900 m2 to 2,000 m2; in the second, a museum will be created with the archaeological remains that have come to light during the works; and in the third, the connection with Metro line 5 and the pedestrian gallery with the Renfe Cercanías in Sol station, which has also entered into service. Ineco has carried out the project and managed the works for Adif. Thanks to this tunnel, 66,000 passengers a day will be able to transfer directly to Gran Vía station without the need to go outside.
