The section Ayesa will work on forms the central part of the line and runs from Matucana to Isidora Goyenechea. The project will have a total of eight stations and will use driverless trains.

Isidoro Carrillo, managing director for International Business, said, “This is an extremely important project for the city and one we’re very excited to be part of through our supervision work.”

Carrillo added that the latest contract will allow Ayesa to “consolidate its presence on the Santiago Metro, which began last summer with Line 3.”
