Construction of two lines with a total length of 32 km and 25 stations
INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Economic growth, social advancement and action against the climate emergency depend largely on investment in infrastructure, sustainable industrial development and technological progress. Today, about 1 billion people live more than 2 km from a roadway, 940 million live without electricity, and 663 million lack improved drinking water sources.
ACCIONA participates in the entire infrastructure construction value chain, from the identification of opportunity, design and execution, to the operation and maintenance of the constructed works, using the most advanced and innovative techniques.
Performance quality and safety are two of the criteria that maximize the company's value proposal in the development of large infrastructure projects and that differentiate it from other competitors in the construction field.
The main feature of this project was the construction of two lines with a total length of 32 km and 25 stations, such that 40% of the developed area or area suitable for development to be located at a distance of less than one kilometre from any of the system's stations.
Line A runs along the city, from Niquia to Itagüi, a distance of 23.20 km, of which 16.60 km is at-grade track and 6.60 km is viaduct track.
Line B is 5.60 km long, of which 1.20 km is level track and 4.40 km is viaduct track.
The project is completed with a 3.20 km link track. The project was completed in March 1997.
