Fortaleza - Ceará, Brazil

Nov/2009 to Jun/2014

The Sobral metro is characterized as a railway passenger transport service that will be operated by trams over an extension of 14.5 km, with 12 stations distributed between the North and South stretches, forming two inverted “U’s” and interconnecting with the Coração de Jesus station. The job also foresees the construction of a Service and Administrative Center, as well as an Operating Control Center.

  • Sumaré Line

Having 7,2 km extension and 6 stations, this stretch will be jointly used for cargo and passengers using the same track way of the old RFFSA, now operated by the Transnordestina, having a route that contours the city center and connects the Cohab II neighborhood at the extreme east, with the Sumaré neighborhood on the west side.

  • Grendene Line

This is a new line, with 6.7 km extension and 6 stations, connecting the Industrial Hub to the Grendene region, where the old Camocim railway branch is, and from there to the Cohab III neighborhood, via Junco and Terrenos Novos regions.

  • Infra and superstructure design of the track ways for the North and South stretches;
  • Complete design of the civil works and architecture for the 12 stations, following a standard typology for all stations.
  • Development of activities related to supervision, inspection and receiving of works and services as foreseen, as well as technological control and installations of equipment and their testing;
  • Joint planning with the customer’s management area, as related to the physical and financial programming of the venture;
  • Assessment of the construction methods proposed by the builders regarding quality of what is to be delivered;
  • Interface between design and works.
