Nope, in English, the term "Americas" refers to South and North America as a whole. So the commenter was correct.

It is under continuous high investment. I think, for those reasons, the line 4 was chosen for steel wheeled cars.
Absolutly agree. the L4 for me the L4 is the most comfortable of all, fast, fresh and trucks because steel wheels support more people. For example Tobalaba station (L1 and L4), there is much influx of people especially in the platform of the L4, but empties quickly, it is convenient to enter the train as opposed to the L1 (rubber wheels and thinner trains).

Thank you. Better let than never. I support steel wheel metros.

I’ve some questions (arose after viewing some websites). Please answer one by one –
1) Will line 5 be extended from Paduahel to Plaza De Maipu?
2) Will there be a new line 3 from Santa Ana to Pedro Argue Cedra via Pedro De Valdevia, Iradazaval Oriente, Nuble, and Franklin?
3) Will there be a new line 6 from Tobalaba to Los Magallanes via Udraneta, Agua Salud & Gato Negro?

This is the former tram map, compared my present metro map. Note the former tram line was much dense in city centre. It also served many far areas like San Bernando & Puente Alto.

Line 1 is following former tram route from Tobalaba to Las Rejas.
Line 2 from Vespucio Norte to Cal Y Canto was served by previous tram. From Cal Y Canto to Los Heroes it is crossing many roads which once had tram lines. From Los Heroes to Rondizzoni was also formerly served by tram, after a one station gap this line is again following previous tram route from Franklin to La Cisterna.
Line 4 from Princep the Galles to Plaza Egana was also served by previous tram. Macul metro station was also served by previous tram. From Vincente Valdes to Plaza de Puente Alto it is following previous meter gauge tram line.
Blanquedao metro station of Line 5 was served by tram formerly. From Cumming to Baquedano was served by former standard gauge tram, and the rest of line 5 is following previous meter gauge tram line.
Future line 6 will use a little part of old tram network.

Planers should give thanks that they almost covered many areas of Santiago by metro, which was formerly served by tram.

Line 5 was extended to Maipu in February. There are several previous posts on this, including photos and videos of the new stations.

1- 2015
2- Because the project of line 3 was postponed because she was going to build in 1985, when an 8° earthquake hit the central zone. After it was never built, until now. You can see the original draft of Metro HERE

3- There is only one type of plattaform: the typical station where trains arrive in the middle

4- underground
6- Universidad de Chile Station, un Downtown Santiago
7- Estacion Central Station, and soon, San Eugenio Station in the new L6

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.
























It was inaugurated today
