Getting to the center of Madrid, “an odyssey” through the ice and snow


Merche Hernando, our companion of the Morning News, has lived a complete odyssey to get to Puerta del Sol, full heart of the city of Madrid. The Metro in Madrid is one of the few public transports that operate relatively normally, due to the storm Filomena.

Leaving the house and getting into the mouth of the Metro in Madrid is very complicated, as Merche Hernando has told us. The streets are frozen. “They have become huge ice rinks ”.

The vehicles and operators of the City Council of the capital are tried to clean the streets but it is an almost impossible task. There is so much snow that it is freezing that it is very difficult to remove the ice from the sidewalks.

Already in the Metro, our colleague from Informativos Telecinco explained that there were a lot of people and a very slow frequency in some lines. Others, like the ones that lead to Puerta del Sol, work better.

He Metro de Madrid is the means of transport that is working the best in the Community. Only line 10 and Line 1 of the Light Metro do not work. In the Cercanías only some lines work. Buses in the capital will not run all day.

Undoubtedly, “those who have to go to work, almost the only option and perhaps the safest is the subway.” Those who had to leave their car on the road should not go looking for it. The vehicles will be taken free of charge to the municipal depots.

No classes today, the authorities have asked that whoever can resort to teleworking and that as during the weekend nor take the car, or go out on the street except for what is essential.
