JUST SO YOU KNOW: THE GRAN VIA METRO STATION IN MADRID IS CLOSED TILL 13 APRIL 2019 »
By the time it reopens, the eight-month makeover of the centenary Gran Via subway station will have made it worthy of celebrating its 100th anniversary with – as the old song goes – rockets, bells and poetry! For one thing, it will be friendly to those whose mobility has been impaired. New lifts and escalators will have been installed and old ones modernized with the needs of the disabled very much in mind. Moreover, the station will have an easy access to the Cercanias at Sol station, that is, the commuter trains that service the Autonomous Region of Madrid.
