There have been plans for decades...I'll believe it when I see it.

My initial opinion: Since the stations' platforms could possibly be 200 m long, and a single car/wagon would be between 22 and 24 meters, I should have equipped the Bogota Metro with 8-car trains (22 x 8 = 176, 24 x 8 = 192). It is rare for a metro system to have the number of its cars/wagons to a train be odd-numbered (3, 5 or 7 cars/wagons).

Bogota expands metro project
Tuesday, August 05, 2014



MUNICIPAL authorities in the Colombian capital Bogota have revised plans for the city's first metro line to include a 4km western extension beyond the proposed terminus at Portal Americas in Kennedy to serve the district of Bosa.

Technical and engineering studies are currently being carried out in preparation for tendering, which should begin by the end of the year.

Prior to the inclusion of the Bosa extension the line would have been 26.5km long with 28 stations and an anticipated pricetag of $US 3.6bn.

Initially, services were due to have commenced in 2016, but the project has been delayed by a government corruption scandal. Construction is now expected to begin in the first quarter of next year and be completed by early 2019 at the latest.

Surprising. I would've thought that northwestward toward Suba would be a priority.

Financing options explored for Bogota metro
Thursday, November 27, 2014



THE Columbian government and the municipal government in Bogota say they are exploring several possible options for funding the capital's first metro line, which is now expected to cost around $US 7.5bn, more than double the $US 3.6bn pricetag initially mooted

According to Bogota's mayor Mr Gustavo Petro, project costs are to be divided into three parts: $US 3.6bn for tunnels and infrastructure, $US 2.5bn for stations and $1.35 billion for rolling stock.

The municipal government will contribute $US 1.25bn, and the Colombian government is expected to provide $US 3.5bn, with the remaining $US 1.4bn financed through fares revenues.

Earlier this year the city announced it would include an additional 4km section of the line from Portal Americas to Bosa in the initial phase, taking the total length of the line to 26.5km with 27 stations.

Despite the increase in costs and changes to the specification, a construction tender is due to be issued in the first quarter of next year, with work scheduled to start by the end of 2015. Commercial services are expected to begin no later than 2021 and the line will have a design capacity of 80,000 passengers per hour.

Initially the line was due to open in 2016, but the project was heavily delayed by a government corruption scandal

According to the article on post #65, the extension to Bosa would mean that the length of the first Bogota Metro line would be extended from 26.5 km to ~31 km with 30 stations from the initial 27 or 28.

Bogota to launch metro tender next year
Wednesday, April 06, 2016





THE mayor of Bogota Mr Enrique Peñalosa announced on April 4 that tendering will begin next year for the construction of the first metro line in the Colombian capital, although the specification for the project has been scaled back from previous proposals

Previously the city planned to construct a 26.5km from Portal Américas to Calle 127, which would run underground for its entire length. However, during his mayoral election campaign last year Peñalosa expressed concerns over the cost of the project, which had an estimated pricetag of $US 6.9bn, and instigated a review of the plans when he assumed office in January

It is said in the Rail Journal article that the cost of constructing the underground line (US$6.9 billion) was deemed uneconomic, and a revised proposal for a 15 km elevated line from Portal Americas to Calle 6 in the city center was adopted.

I guess this explains the renders on page 874 of the Bogota Metro thread at the local Colombia forum. Still, I'm rather disappointed about this. I think if they can't have the entire line be underground, then they should have just the part within the city centre be underground.

The thread for the Bogota Metro at the local Colombia forum has been closed for the time being. Is this a sign that plans for the Bogota Metro are going nowhere?

I should have went for a straight north-south line at the east of Bogota, and it would still touch the city's central business district at the Santa Fe locality. Not sure if having part of the line be aboveground is a good idea, even though an elevated metro line is supposed to be cheaper than an underground metro line. And with the population of Bogota area fast approaching 10 million, Medellin (since it developed a metro line first) will be laughing at Bogota because Bogota keeps stalling development of a metro line of its own.
