The Community of Madrid assigns 26 million euro to the installation of 17 lifts at three Metro stations

As part of the Metro Madrid Accessibility Plan 2016-2020. Once the works are completed, Tribunal, Bilbao and Pavones will be 100% accessible stations

The Governing Council gave the go-ahead today to the proposal for the award of the works for the installation of 17 new lifts at Tribunal (Lines 1 and 10), Bilbao (Lines 1 and 4) and Pavones (Line 9) Metro Stations, with an overall budget of 26 million euro.

The works at Tribunal Station will permit the installation of seven lifts, with a budget of 11,799,533 euro and a completion time of 30 months. In addition, at Bilbao another seven lifts will be installed, with an investment of 8,246,793 euro and a maximum installation time scheduled at 92 weeks, while the three lifts at Pavones Station will require 12 months for their completion, with a budget of 5,788,824 euro.

In the three cases the works, which will increase the number of 100% accessible stations, will allow to undertake operations for the remodelling of the facilities. In this way, at Tribunal Station the claddings, installations and oldest items of equipment will be replaced, whilst at Bilbao and Pavones works will be undertaken for the renovation of wall claddings and installations, sealing and replacement of the false fibrocement panel ceilings, which will be removed with all the safety measures laid down in the Plan for the Removal of Asbestos in the network.

These actions form part of the Metro Accessibility Plan 2016-2020, which is endowed with an overall investment of 145.7 million euro and was agreed upon with the Spanish Committee of Representatives of Persons with Disabilities (CERMI). The Plan, which will be implemented until 2020, will enable Metro to go from 63% of accessible stations to 73% and will entail the installation of 84 lifts at 33 stations, after the recent inclusion of Sevilla Station.

This project is co-financed by the Community of Madrid and the European Union by way of the European Regional Development Fund 2014-2020 and the measures carried out will make it possible to improve the mobility of the 322,000 Madrilenians with varying degrees of functional diversity.

The new lifts are being installed at stations offering transfer to at least two other Metro lines and at others requested by associations or bodies caring for persons with disabilities. In this way, at the latest Governing Council Meetings authorization was approved for the installation of four new lifts at Plaza Elíptica Station, another six at Príncipe de Vergara Station and two more at Portazgo Station, which join those which are being installed at Príncipe Pío Station (two) and Barrio de la Concepción Station (three).
