Wow! So 3 & 6 will be fully automated, just like Paris' Line 14 (& soon-to-be Line 1).

Are these 2 lines going to be rubber-tyred? If so, I wonder if the rolling stock will be based of Paris' MP05, which is in production & based off the MP89, by which the NS93 is based off from.

Yes HARTride 2012, at least according to the latest information they both will be fully automated.

Regarding the type of wheels, that isn't clear yet.

Cheers.

Here comes some fine contribution from the excellent forumer Cercanías_Santiago.

This forumer has drawn a few infographics showing how it may come to look like. So far nothing is 100% for sure so let's take this with a slight pinch of salt.

Thanks and credits go to Cercanías_Santiago.

los trenes en que esta pensando el ministro me recuerdan mucho los trenes usado en el metro de Madrid los serie 8000. tienen buenas prestaciones en cuanto a velocidad unos 110 kilómetros por hora y además cuentan con aire acondicionado otro requisito del cual habla el ministro.
en cuanto a el aire acondicionado en las lineas antiguas es imposible por el tamaño de los túneles y en especial lo bajo que son en cada estación.
yo me inclino mas a llamarlo un sistema de trenes pesados mas cercano a los trenes suburbano que posee mayor velocidad y menos estaciones de lo que estamos acostumbrados con metro s.a

hice una pequeña infografia para imaginar un poco de como serian las futuras estaciones de metro. algo asi podriamos ver en 4 años mas

Landscaping and urban improvements


In the avenues and Pajaritos Lieutenant Cruz landscaping projects were implemented. These projects consider the construction of gardens under the viaduct, the installation of a lighting system to be powered by the Metro and the replacement of all trees removed because of work. In addition, improved pedestrian crossings adjacent to the station on a viaduct.

In the case of Av Pajaritos, created a bike path, with higher standards, which allow users to retrieve a route they used for years in improved security and service. And in the case of Lt. Av. Cruz, the project includes the installation of traffic signals for new pedestrian crossings and road crossing Ailinco street.

Thus, the benefits of security and less travel time will receive the new Metro riders will be added advantages of progress and improving the quality of life of the community.





New Plaza de Maipú
(plaza=square)

The new "Plaza for a million citizens" is an important urban site that will house the terminus of Line 5, changing the face of one of the most emblematic public spaces Maipú.

Located at the intersection of the avenues Pajaritos and April 5, the final design of the square came from an architectural competition in 2009 led by the Municipality of Maipú. Among its features, the "Plaza for a million citizens" will have a new concourse with bleachers, and more than 2,600 square feet for civic events.

I just realized from watching videos on Youtube that the NS04 sounds just like the NS93 when it pulls out of the station. Neat!

Yes, sound like but are not equal. The sound of the NS-04 (Alstom = The NS93) is rougher, shorter.

The NS-93 are great in every way, both manufacturing and sound.


NS-04



NS-93

Santiago once also had a very good tram network. The first electric tram was tested 1 April 1900 and five decorated open cars officially inaugurated Chile's first electric street railway system, 1435 mm gauge, on Sunday 2 September 1900. The parade ran from the Mapocho shops down Calles Brazil, Rosas and Bandera to Av. Bernardo O'Higgins. By the end of that year, 56 electric trams were running on 43 km of new electric tram track. Other routes were constructed gradually. But the bad patch started during forties. Electric Bond & Share's power and tramway companies - the CCE in Santiago and the CEV in Valparaiso - were taken over by the Chilean government on 15 September 1945. The new Empresa Nacional de Transportes, which officially began operation on 22 September, inherited a fleet of 488 passenger trams in the capital: the 90 Brill cars built in 1926-1931, 40 vehicles rebuilt in the 1930s numbered #225-239 and #731-755, 17 4-axle German cars, 175 German 4-wheelers, and 166 wooden trailers - the latter all constructed before the First War. ENT vowed to revitalize the nation's urban transport systems and began with a program of tramway replacement. It removed rails from most of the streets in the central area and closed the San Bernardo line beyond the city limits. Finally, the tramway network closed in 1978. It is noted that it was not closed during the anti tram sixties.

All trams have disappeared from Santiago today. None was preserved. However, the rails are intact on many streets, the line poles hold street lamps, and the tram depot at Calles Mapocho and Brazil has survived. The right-of-way of the rack railway on Cerro Santa Lucia - which closed in 1910 - is a pedestrian path called Camino del Ferrocarril, a name that baffles many residents. Santiago's rubber-tired metro system, which opened in September 1976, follows the route of the San Bernardo tramway as far as La Cisterna, and a new line is planned along the route of the Puente Alto railway.

Can anybody post here photos of some remains of former tram network?

Why line 4 has constructed with steel wheel system rather than rubber tired like other lines?

Will future line 3 & 6 also be rubber tired?

The last tram of Santiago. Chilean cities was mainly used double decker trams.

Santiago has the most modern metro network in South America. It uses mostly rubber tired metro. But I think it is not the best solution. Although they are quieter, accelerate faster, climb steeper, stop quicker, but also costlier because this is not widely accepted and very limited companies manufactures their parts. It is under continuous high investment. I think, for those reasons, the line 4 was chosen for steel wheeled cars.

Will future line 3 & 6 also use steel wheeled cars? I recommend that. Rubber tired metro is not an ideal solution.
