Lasting, complex constructions
In 2008, after three and a half years of work, the station was opened and Miribilla was connected with Bilbao's commuter network. The work of Ineco's engineers was a key factor in a complex construction process due to the hardness of the limestone rock and the steeply sloping terrain.
The station is located nearly 50 metres underground, the deepest of any Adif station. The main entrance façade is glazed so that it resembles a huge glass box and from the outside gives an impression of airy lightness.
Enlivening the trip
Ineco aimed to give the station a special touch. Inside, the walls of the lifts and of some of the internal structures are also made of glass so the user's transit through the station is a unique experience.
Even the floor is glass in some places and is lighted from the hallway below.
The station connects around 3,000 users a day with the rest of Bilbao's public transport services in less than 2 minutes with intervals between trains of 10 minutes at peak hours and 20 minutes off-peak.
