The Sino-Portuguese construction giant has been selected to build Lisbon’s red line metro extension from São Sebastião to Alcântara.

The project has been awarded for a budget of €321,88 million. The original tender price had been €330 million.
The other competitors had been FCC Construcción, Teixeira Duarte, Acciona Construcción and Zagope which the adjudicating jury excluded for various reasons.
The new stations will be Campolide/Amoreiras, Campo de Ourique, Infante Santo and Alcântara.
With an extension of 4 km, the works will begin from a trunk that has already been built at the Station of São Sebastião, via a stretch of double tunnel line next to the Palácio da Justiça law courts.
Completion on the extension of the red line is expected to be in 2026, and its total cost is €405.3 million, a sum which is budgeted for in the Recovery and Resilience Plan (RRP) of which €304 million comes from EU funding and State funding of €101.4 million.
