The Community of Madrid invests €2.4 million to modernise the electrical installation at Núñez de Balboa Metro station

The work will optimise the lighting performance and energy efficiency of this public infrastructure on lines 5 and 9. The lighting will also be completely refurbished with LED technology lighting. The actions do not require closure and will involve the removal of false ceilings in corridors and other areas

The Community of Madrid will invest a total of €2,416,569 million in the comprehensive refurbishment and modernisation of the low-voltage electrical installations at the Núñez de Balboa Metro station. This stop in the capital is served by lines 5 and 9 of the Madrid underground network .

This project, in addition to the renovation and adaptation of the equipment and enclosures, includes the technological renovation of the station's lighting system, which will optimise the lighting performance and energy efficiency of the system.

The specific actions to be carried out include the refurbishment of the station's low-voltage switchboards and secondary switchboards, as well as the replacement of the wiring. In addition, the lighting will be completely remodelled using LED technology approved by Metro.

These actions, which will entail the removal of the false ceilings that cover the vaults in the corridors and areas of the station, do not imply their closure as they are compatible with the normal provision of the service.

Núñez de Balboa station was reopened on 7 September, once the improvement and asbestos removal work between Colombia and Príncipe de Vergara stations on Metro Line 9, which began on 5 August, had been completed.
