Thanks for bringing that information here Tom.

With the extension finalized, Line 1 will have 34 operating kms.

Tender for Line 2 and part of Line 4 are programmed for the fourth quarter of this year.

More information here (spanish)

PS: Why is there posts talking about trams? Lima doesnt have trams used as massive public transport. Only Metro and BRT.

I'm glad it was such a hit. Now for part two...

Here's a table of expected expenditures for the remaining lines. It's a very ambitious program-- I'll be pleasantly surprised if it actually stays on point, between (IMO) cost escalations and and the difficulty of funding construction and expanded operations simultaneously.



And a map of Linea 2 and the Linea 4 airport connection. Consideration was given to running Linea 2 under Avenida Grau, but it's been decided to run it under Av. 28 de Julio instead due to constructability concerns. Doing this will mean that a new station will be required for transfers to/from Linea 1; the new station will be almost exactly halfway between the Grau and Gamarra stations of Linea 1, which is likely one reason why Av. 28 de Julio was chosen for Linea 2.



From this page, two more maps with more detail:






On a semi-related topic, somewhere finally I found some info about the integration between the busway on Av. Grau and Linea 1. Basically, there isn't any, because right-of-way issues and the presence of a large underground electrical line prevented placing Grau station within the median of Av. Grau. IMO it would've been better to go ahead and spend the extra money to build a proper interchange station, but what's done is done, and design compromises are a big part of what makes metros so interesting.





From http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tren_Urbano_de_Lima , here's a current (I think) map of the full five-line Metro system-- it's very different from the one posted upthread:



I hope they come up with a better plan than requiring two transfers to get between Linea 5 and Linea 1...



Per the written descriptions in the Wikipedia article, Linea 3 will cross Linea 2 at Estacion Central-- yay! . It'll also run partly along (under?) Tupac Amaru and thus be redundant with the northern section of the Metropolitan. How's that supposed to work?


I have more to say, but it'll be a miracle if anyone reads this far.

The Metropolitano was not meant to be a permanent solution. However, the demand in the northern end of the city is so high that I could see them coexisting, perhaps with the Metro as an express service, and the BRT as a local service.

The network has been recently updated by the Japanese International Cooporation Agency(JICA). The network now includes a Line 6.The government has announced that it will sign a concession contract regarding this line no later than 2016

Dear Churrito:

Is not $ 8 million, It is US$6.5 BILLIONS.

Nice try with you table. But you are not telling that Dubai Metro-Red Line- is almost totally elevated. Lines 2 and section of Line 4 in Lima will be 100% underground. Some of the metro projects in your table are also elevated; Expo Line in LA for instance.
It is more expensive to build a metro underground than a elevated monorail.

Judging by the increasing amount of inaugurated railway tunnels each year, has tunneling become cheaper?

I saw on the Spanish Wikipedia that there were plans to develop a second BRT line within Lima (spanning west to east). Those plans were suspended in favour of the development of the Lima Metro Line 2.

There are no railway tunnels in Lima.

Time to raid the Lima forums again...

Layouts for the Estacion Central (Central Station), with access to the Metropolitan BRT line, just above and to the right on the plan. (Google maps view of the area:


This one shows the tunnel between the Linea 2 and Metropolitan stations:


Also, layout of the interchange station(s) between Lines 1 and 2, at Av 28 de Julio and Avenida Aviacion. Again, Google maps view of the area. Hey-- Streetview is here!


And a closeup plan showing the station layout. It seems awfully underpowered to me; I think that each line should have both left and right-side platforms. But there is an underground concourse connecting the two stations and topped by a small park. It should improve the area considerably-- apparently the area is now used for handling of trash and/or recyclables.


Discussion in the thread hinted that maybe they'd decide not to build a new interchange on Linea 1. That would've been a huge mistake.
Here's a map showing Lima's Metro/BRT network in 2019. Anyone can see how crucial the L1-L2 interface will be:
Link-- the photo got huge

The proposed branch of L2 (the future L4) is supposed to be elevated or underground?

It is fully underground, 24mts below street level which actually makes it below sea level! That area of Lima is no higher than 10mts AMSL. Some joke that this branch is not a subway but actually a submarine!

There was some discussion in the Lima forums of building Linea 6 as a monorail, but I don't know how seriously to take it. I'm generally a monorail skeptic, but monorails can carry as many passengers as a metro, and are invariably less expensive than a subway. As expensive as the Lima Metro is projected to be, maybe monorails would be a good idea for some corridors.

From Reuters:

Peru awards multibillion-dollar subway project to sole bidder

(Reuters) - A consortium made up of Spanish, Italian and Peruvian builders won a contract for a multibillion-dollar subway line in Lima after competitors unexpectedly dropped out of the contest last week, Peru's state investment agency said on Friday.

Consorcio Nuevo Metro de Lima will build and maintain the mostly underground 35-kilometer (22-mile) line in a 35-year private-public concession, state investment agency Proinversion said.

The Peruvian government will put about $3.8 billion toward construction and maintenance of the project, with additional costs covered by the company.

Proinversion had put the total cost of the project at no more than $6.62 billion, and the consortium said it won the concession with a $5.35 billion bid.

Consorcio Nuevo Metro de Lima includes Spanish builders Iridium Concesiones de Infraestructura, FCC (FCC.MC), Italian firms Salini Impregilo (SALI.MI), Ansaldo STS (STS.MI) and Ansaldo Breda, and Peru's Cosapi.

Iridium, owned by ACS (ACS.MC), holds the biggest stake in the consortium, said Fernando Valdez, the group's spokesman and Cosapi's general manager.

Correction to Reuters report. It is not "mostly underground". It will be totally underground
