Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Lisbon Metro is the metro system that provides Lisbon, Portugal with mass transit services. It was the first subway in Portugal. As of 2007, the four Lisbon subway lines total about 39 kilometres in length and comprise 46 stations. Since 1888 the thought of building a system of underground railways was present in the city of Lisbon. The idea was proposed by Henrique de Lima e Cunha, a military engineer who had published a proposal in the journal Public Works and Mines a network with several lines that could serve the Portuguese capital. Concrete plans took longer to form: Lanoel Aussenac d'Abel and Abel Coelho presented theirs in 1923, and Jos Manteca Roger / Juan Luque Argenti theirs one year later, in 1924. None of these plans were carried out.show more
