The new image of Madrid as part of the Madrid River project. New fountains and the river have been conditioned, as consequence of undergrounding the highway M-30, creating one of the big green areas of the city along the Manzanares riverside and being called the new ‘Calle 30’ – 30 Street.
The Madrid River Project – ‘Madrid Rio’ – with the burial of the M-30 implies one of the best opportunities that Madrid has had for transforming the city, permitting recovery of a space that used to be occupied by cars,which will convert to a large park joining El Pardo with the municipality of Getafe, connecting up green zones and historic gardens and recovering the use of the river. So, one of the most degraded and neglected zones of the city is going to be become one of the most beautiful and with the greatest environmental quality, integrating the centre and the south-west of Madrid by means of a new public space of 1,170,000 m2, developed by the City Council.
