On a visit to the construction site for the expansion of the Lisbon metro network, on the section between Rato and Estrela, Duarte Cordeiro said he was “fully aware” that it is necessary to increase the number of workers at the Metropolitano de Lisboa company in order to guarantee not only the current offer, but also the expected increase following the expansion of the network.

“An increase in human resources is inevitable, namely metro train drivers, and we know that we have to do it,” said the minister.
