Bogota, the capital of Colombia is continuing the expansion of its metro and has chosen the consortium, Unión Temporal MOVIUS – UT Movilidad Urbana Sostenible, led by SYSTRA, to design the second line of its Metro network.
The 15.8km long Metro Line 2 will serve Chapinero, Barrios Unidos, Engativá, and Suba, and will comprise 13.5km of 7m diameter tunnel, with 11 stations.
Line 2 will complement Line 1, which is still under construction in the hyper-centre in the north-east of the capital. The stations will be interconnected with the TransMilenio Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) network and the RegioTram del Norte tram-train line, for which SYSTRA is also in charge of design.
SYSTRA is leading the Unión Temporal Movius – UT Movilidad Urbana Sostenible consortium, which includes five other specialist companies, and which was selected by the FDN, the Financiera de Desarrollo Nacional of Colombia.
As early as 2017, SYSTRA prepared the technical structuring and studies for line 1 of the Bogotá metro.
The current Line 2 design contract is scheduled to complete in 2023.
