Olympic Games' Impact on Rio's Port Area


The revitalisation of the former harbour area is only one of many projects related to the Olympics. After the demolition of the high line "Perimetral", along the coast of the bay the former abandoned area around it has become a place for pedestrians, bikers skaters. The neighbourhood's benefit is a better infrastructure and a wide offer of cultural activities. The electric tramway VLT connecting the port area to the national airport was inaugurated recently. Until end of July you can join a ride for free!
