"The anticipation of the reopening of the Cidade Universitária station results from the efforts made by Metropolitano de Lisboa to minimise the constraints caused to customers by optimising the timetable planned for the railway intervention in the station", explained the Metro, in a statement.

Metropolitano de Lisboa underlined that the interventions in the section between Campo Grande and Cidade Universitária, will allow "significant gains in terms of the reliability of the service for the circulation of trains on the Yellow line".
