Sacyr Infrastructures


Sacyr Ingeniería e Infraestructuras, working as part of a consortium with the Brazilian building firm Ferrera Guede, is building phase 1 of the Eastern Metro Line in Fortaleza. This is one of the most popular cities in Brazil with tourists, carrying around 150,000 passengers a day. 

The work includes laying the track from the Tirol-Moura Brasil station to the rail yard, located after Papicú station. 

The project encompasses 7.3 km of tunnels, 6 km of which will be excavated using tunneling machinery. It also includes five underground stations (Tirol, Central Chico da Silva, Colegio Militar, Nunes Valente and Papicú) and one overground station (Tirol-Moura Brasil).

With this project, we are looking to promote mobility in the city but also to contribute to its economic and social development. A total of 600 people are currently working on this major construction project, which will improve connections for one of the country's most popular tourist destinations. At Sacyr, not only do we build the best infrastructure; we also strive to improve people’s quality of life
