Our commitment to urban mobility in Brazil involves building one of the most transited subway systems in the world. Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures is currently in charge of the extension works of Line 2 of the Sao Paulo Metro, consisting of an 8.3-kilometer and eight stops expansion. This service directly connects to lines 3-Red, 11-Coral (CPTM), and 15-Silver.

This line, also known as the green line (Linha 2-Verde), goes from Vila Prudente to Dutra, and is 7.3 kilometers long. We built it as an assignment for the Companhia do Metropolitano de São Paulo (Sao Paulo Metro Company) within a 69-month time frame for 443 million euros.

Tunnels, air shafts, and stops

This contract includes building a 7.8-kilometer-long and 11.7-meter diameter two-way tunnel with an EPB tunnel boring machine. It also involves constructing 1.8-kilometer-long train sidings using the Austrian tunneling method. 

The framework of this project contemplates the construction of the Vila Formosa metro stop and bus terminal, as well as the Rapadura complex, with a railyard and train sheds, five air shafts with a 12-to-15-meter diameter, and a slab track superstructure.



La tuneladora más grande de Latinoamérica

For the development of this project, the the largest tunnel boring machine in Latin America, known as Cora Coralina has been shipped to Brazil. The TBM  will excavate 8.4 km between the Vila Prudente and Penha stations.

Its impressive figures make it the largest tunnel boring machine in Latin America: a cutting wheel with a diameter of over 11 meters and a total length of 100 meters. It weighs 500 tons and has a power of 144,000 kn.
