Update on the Metro

January 27, 2009

Back on October 30th, I posted pictures of the metro construction down our street. I thought it was time for an update. The following pictures alternate between October 30th and the present day. Unfortunately, they are not exact comparisons because I didn’t take the pictures from the same position and perspective, but I hope you can make heads or tails out of them.

There is still a ways to go. The whole thing will be painted a lovely — you guessed it — sand color (or cement color). Also they will still need to put on the tracks and railings and whatever else goes on top of these sections.
Above the view from our balcony September, below January. There is some progress – the gaping holes are smaller. They continue to jackhammer and bang and clang. This line of the train isn’t scheduled to open until March 2010, so we have a while to go.
