Systra has been awarded a six-year contract to provide technical guidance for the construction of Santiago Metro’s new driverless lines.

Lines 3 and 6 will be underground and fully automatic, and will be designed by Systra by early 2013.

The second five-year phase will then include assistance with awarding construction contracts and supervising works.

Line 3, which will be 22.1 km in length and have 18 stations, will run from Américo Vespucio to Tobalaba/Larrain.

Line 6 will extend for 15.3 km with 10 stations, linking Pedro Aguirre Cerda and Los Leones.

The contract to provide technical assistance will cover all systems and rolling stock.

The Santiago Metro network in Chile currently consists of 5 lines.
