Parking in Lisbon will become more expensive. The private company EMEL will create two new tariff zones in the Portuguese capital, more expensive than those already existing. Indeed, after the green, yellow and red zones, Lisbon will also have brown areas and even black areas, whose parking will cost € 3 per hour and will be limited in time. The first resident parking pass for each home will be free and large families will have benefits. What are the changes to parking in the Portuguese capital ? What consequences for the creation of these new areas ? Lisbob, the expatriate's assistant in Portugal, tells you all about the new parking areas.
The Portuguese parliament approved today, thanks to the abstention of the PS, a proposal of the PSD which advocates the suspension of the circular line announced in the project of expansion of the Lisbon metro. The bill received, in addition to the abstention of the PS, the favorable votes of all the other parliamentary groups. The Social Democrats defended the suspension of the construction of the circular line and demanded technical studies of economic viability in order to radically change the initial project. The PSD thus speaks of an extension of the yellow line to Alcântara and the red line to the western zone of Lisbon, as well as the extension of the metro to the municipality of Loures. Users find it difficult to understand that these studies were not done before, and homeowners who bought property in the area of the 2 new stations planned feel aggrieved. Lisbob, the expatriate assistant in Portugal, tells you all about the suspension of the Lisbon metro expansion project.
