The official opening took place this morning with the presence of the Minister of Environment and Climate Action, João Matos Fernandes.

In a statement, the company emphasises that the Metropolitano de Lisboa now has 41 stations (out of the existing 56) with full accessibility, that is, they have access between the surface and the boarding platforms for people with reduced mobility, which corresponds to 73.2% of all stations in the network.

The Arroios station originally began operating in June 1972, with the opening of the Anjos - Alvalade section. At that time, it featured an architectural project by Diniz Gomes and a plastic intervention by Maria Keil.

The Arroios station, on the Lisbon Metro Green Line, had been closed since 19 July 2017 for expansion works.
