New Metro Station

This is one of the newest Metro Stations in the City, right beside the Nuevo Leon's Autonomous University (UANL - Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon) the State University. 

They all have this wavy kind of style and had been cause of protests since the City Council decided to make this Metro line over the streets reducing the space to drive. Also it took a couple of years to complete in which the streets were almost closed entirely.


Esta es una de las nuevas estaciones de Metro en la Ciudad, justo al lado de la Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León (UANL), la Universidad Estatal.

Todas las estaciones nuevas tienen este estilo ondulado y han causado protestas debido a que la Ciudad decidió hacer esta línea de Metro sobre la calle, reduciendo el espacio para manejar. También estuvo en construcción durante casi 2 años en los que la calle estuvo cerrada casi por completo.

I wonder why they made the roof cover the street? Seems odd to do that.

It's a wonderful image

It's just the roof of the station.

The Metro goes above the street like a bridge going along from station to station.

I really like the angle of this picture - very brave to include so much sky, but it really works!
