Looks very much like the old trams we had in Brazil and the current heritage tramway of Santos, Sao Paulo

Good pics of Lima's rich transport history!

How frequent will service be? I suppose they're still rather short of cars.

It's open, and operating with five trains. The Alstom trains will arrive between December of this year and December of 2013. People have responded to the new Metro line very positively.

Lima metro Line 2 PPP proposal


02 January 2013


PERU: A team of consultants led by Geodata of Italy has proposed a PPP or concession model for Lima metro Line 2, a planned 27 km east-west route from Ate to Callao with 35 stations. The project has been costed at US$5·37bn, including US$2·94bn for infrastructure and US$871m for vehicles.

Line 2 is expected to carry around 644000 passengers/day, with 24000 passengers/h at peak times. But as construction and operating costs could not be met from the farebox, public finance would be required.

State investment agency ProInversión is expected to commence tendering shortly. According to the study, awarding a concession in March 2014 could see the project completed within 66 months.

Only after Tianjin, I saw such a metro system that opened previously, then closed for reconstruction & modernization for 5 years, then reopened.

However, at last it is now opened for public service. Lima is continuously suffering by traffic jam, air pollution etc. since seventies. It closed their good tram network in 1965, like most cities of the world. That tram network was large and covered entire Lima & Callao. Downtown network was very tight. Lack of maintenance declined the popularity. After the closure, they thought Lima will improve very fast, but it was proved wrong within 5 to 10 years. So a good network of metro is highly needed.

1) What are the target years of opening all future other new lines & extensions?
2) Left side, right side or both sides, - which type of platforms are in most numbers in Lima subway network?
3) Which are the highest stations of Lima metro?
4) Which is the busiest metro station?
5) Which stations have interchange facility with suburban rail network?
6) Which stations have interchange facility with tram network?
7) Will the entire line 1 be elevated?
8) Where is/are the depot(s) of the subway network?

I'll try to do my best to answer all of your questions.

1 The current extension (line 1} is set to open next year. Construction for line 2 should also begin next year.
2 Trains run on the left, and all platforms are on the left as of now.
3 I believe that Miguel Grau is the highest one. The stations being built right now are pretty high as
well.
4 I'm not sure if official figures have been released, but Gamarra station had been publicized as the busiest station.,
5 There is no suburban rail network in Lima. Martinete may be used as an interchange with a potential suburban rail to Chosica, but there's nothing official about this plan yet.
6 there are no trams in Lima, but an interchange station with the city's BRT will exist in Grau (line 1), and Central (line 2)
7 Yes
8 it's near the southern terminus in Villa el Salvadoe

Thanks very much for your reply.

Lima has a tram system. Lima’s current tramway is only a very short heritage line, which uses the last model of original network. Although there are some differences, like colour of rolling stock. Originally those trams used trolley pole, current trams uses a unique half pantograph.





Last photo of original network, just some days before closing


Present heritage tram, compare with first foto.

I heard that heritage line will be extended towards downtown. Is there any progress going?

Lima does not, in any way, have a tram system. That "heritage line" only caters to tourists in a very short distance (600 m). There are no plans to extend it downtown.

Point of interest about Line 2: Originally, Line 2 was envisioned as (mostly) at-grade along the city's only freight rail line. I'm not sure whether the intention was to remove the freight line or to have Line 2 run alongside it. The current Line 2 plan, however, is a much more ambitious underground line, much of it to be tunneled with TBM's. Also, a short section of Line 4 connecting Line 2 to the airport is to be built at the same time.

I'm still very curious about the junctions between Line 1, Line 2 and the Metropolitan...

Because it is not a mass transit line, it is an open air museum.

Pillaging the threads in the Peruvian forum:

Construction continues apace on the Linea 1 extension to SJL. Here's a view of Bayovar Station, with interesting commentary (Google translated) by MissCombi:

What advantage will achieve with this? Does using less steel? * Until I get the impression that the platforms are a little wider.
Crossing the Rio Rimac, the line will be carried by a gracefully arched concrete box girder instead of the usual precast beams:















And, some later pics. Apparently progress is quite rapid.

There's also an elevated spur connecting to a train yard:
