The Hospital del Henares station on Line 7 of the Madrid Metro closes for “functional reinforcement” works from Wednesday, February 5, for a period of ten months, according to Efe sources from Madrid suburban.
The same sources have explained that while the works last the Regional Transport Consortium of Madrid will launch a free bus service every fifteen minutes between the Hospital del Henares station, which is at one end of line 7, and the de Henares, which is the following.
Trains will begin to circulate at Henares station, in zone B1.
Metro de Madrid has not detailed the works, which will affect the Hospital del Henares station as a whole.
Last December, the Minister of Transportation, Mobility and Infrastructure, Ángel Garrido, announced that the Community of Madrid was going to allocate 1.2 million euros in 2020 to repair homes that present problems in the vicinity of the Metro line as it passes through San Fernando de Henares.
In addition, he advanced that a geological-geotechnical study of the soil crossed by this Metro line would be carried out both in San Fernando de Henares and in Coslada to anticipate the movements of the land.
Currently, there are hundreds of buildings in the area affected by cracks and subsidence resulting from the extension of Metro line 7, which was opened in 2007 with Esperanza Aguirre as regional president.
