The Trindade – Santo Ovídio section of the Metro do Porto Yellow Line will be closed between today and Sunday at 13:00 due to an intervention to reinforce traction, but the company will provide an alternative bus service.

According to a company press release published on Wednesday, Metro do Porto announced that traffic on the Yellow Line (D) would be interrupted throughout today and “until 13:00 on Sunday (August 20), in both directions of the Santo Ovídio – Trindade section”.

At stake is “an operation to increase traction capacity at the General Torres station” in Vila Nova de Gaia, as “the work to increase the energy capacity of the Yellow Line will be completed, with a view to the journeys to be made on its new extension (from Santo Ovídio to Vila d’Este), as soon as the work is completed”, which is scheduled for the end of the year.

“Metro do Porto provides an alternative transport service on STCP [Sociedade de Transportes Coletivos do Porto] buses that guarantees coverage of the route that has been cut, in both directions, with stops close to the Metro stations covered,” reads the note from the company led by Tiago Braga.

Today, the buses will run every 10 minutes between 06:00 and 07:00, every five minutes between 07:00 and 21:00, every six minutes between 21:00 and 23:00 and from 23:00 until the operation closes at 01:00, the 10-minute frequencies will return.

“On Sunday, there will be 10-minute services from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and about seven minutes between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.,” Metro do Porto says, and bicycles are not allowed on the buses.

The subway service between Hospital São João and Trindade will operate normally throughout the intervention period.
