Rio subway

Rio subway opening times extended for Olympic and Paralympic Games

This comes after State Secretary of Transport Rodrigo Vieira told Globo how the final installation of the line four extension westwards to link the city centre with the main Games-hub at Barra de Tijuca was completed over the weekend.

Overall progress is now said to be 90 per cent complete.

A wagon was reportedly pulled by another vehicle to test the new line, passing five stations on the route of which the construction is still being completed.
