Thanks for the images OscarSCL.

In the first pictures you can see the AS-2002 model with METROPOLIS standard manufactured by ALSTOM in Brazil (2004). This rolling stock is of steel wheel type. On the other hand, according to ALSTOM web site, the train in last pictures is the NS-93 model, the first version of those serving Meteor Line (14) in Paris. This rolling stock was manufactured in France (ca. 1997) and is of rubber-tyred type. Both trains can be up to a speed of ca. 80 Km/hr.

Greetings.

Superb metro. Great varieties of colours and interplay. The tunnel shot showing where the lighting shines downward looks just like our tunnels here.

Santiago de Chile's New Line 4A

The following pictures of Line 4A were taken by the chilean forumer Caglieri, who's taken some of the best pictures
of the Santiago Metro.


The new Line 4-A was ingaugurated on August 16, 2006. It is 7.7km long and is all above ground, running in the median
between Highway Vespucio South.

future extentions of the system. Line 5 (green) extention is shown in orange. Line 1 (red)
will be extended 4 stations to the east. When completed in 2009, the system
will be 104.5km long in total, and it's already currently the longest in South America

Line 4 transfers to Line 5 at station Vicente Valdes. I'm not sure why they didn't build a transfer between Line 4A and Line 5. Sorry .

Hey, thanks mate!

Do you mean the Greater Santiago area?

It's 867 km2 big and has approximately 5,6 million inhabitants.
The Santiago Metro was inaugurated on the 15th of September 1975 and it was only 8,2 km long. Bear in mind that until only 6 years ago the Metro was only 40, 4 km long (as of march 2000). And in only 6 years they've duplicated the length of the network, today it measures approximately 80,8 km and has 82 stations.
In the year 2000 they completed Line 5. In 2004 they extended Line 2 to the south and to the north. And during 2005-2006 the brand new Line 4& 4A (branch) was inaugurated (33 km long).

You might wonder what are they up to right now?

They are... :

- extending Line 2 even farther to the north (2,4 km), to Americo Vespucio ring road's northernmost point to be more precise.
- about to start constructing the extension of Line 1 to the east (4 km).
- about to start constructing the extension of Line 5 to the west (13, 5 km), from "Quinta Normal" to "Plaza de Maipú".

And finally by 2009 the total length of the network will be: 104, 5 km...
...And it will have: 108 stations...


...But it doesn't stop there. Rumours say that after 2009 they will start building Line 3 (approx. 16 km) which would go from the east and up to the northwest. On the way it would connect (and in order) to Line 4, Line 5, Line 1 and Line 2. Rumous also say that they would start extending Line 4 from "Tobalaba" to the north or/and extending Line 4A from "La Cisterna" to the west where it would connect to Line 5 (future station "Plaza de Maipú) . So probably and if all of this becomes reality, the total length of the network would become almost 130 km long by 2020.

Cheers!

Greetings from Stockholm!

This is a very good compilation about newest lines of Santiago's metro. That is why this thread is worth being reborn.

The Santiago system and the current expansion program are very impressive!

How much have they spent to build Lines 5, 2, 4 & 4A? Where is the money coming from? What was the reason(s) for finally deciding to expand the system in past 6 years?

Sorry for all the questions but I'm curious about those things because Rio has twice the population of Santiago and their metro system is only 35 km!!! They're doing well if they build one new station every 2 years!
