RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - After three and a half years of construction in Leblon, authorities say the two new Metro (subway) stations - Jardim de Alah and Antero de Quental - are in their final phases of completion. The two work sites were visited yesterday (March 21st) by the Secretary of State for Transport, Rodrigo Vieira, the Executive Secretary, Oswaldo Dreux, and the president of RioTrilhos, Tatiana Carius.
