ACCIONA, awarded two sections of L3 of the Santiago de Chile

Metro de Santiago has awarded the contract for the construction of the first sections of the new Line 3 of the Santiago de Chile Metro (subway) to a consortium headed by ACCIONA − in which the Chilean companies Brotec and Icafal also participate − for 2.53 million UF (around 77 million euros).

The contract covers the construction of 6.7 kilometers of tunnels and accesses to installations for the stations of Cola de Maniobras, Estación Terminal Norte, Estación Cardenal Caro, Vivaceta, Conchalí and Plaza Chacabuco. The project’s completion is planned for the end of next year. It will mean the creation of over 1,600 jobs at times of peak activity, with an average of more than 900 people employed during the works.

Line 3 has a total length of 22 kilometers and crosses the historic center of the Chilean capital. It has 18 stations and will serve over 660,000 people. One of the key elements in the award of this contract is ACCIONA’s experience and track record in building Metro networks and tunnels in complex environments, both from the engineering and the environmental and social points of view.

The company has played a major role in the development of the Metro networks in Madrid, San Juan de Puerto Rico and Medellin. It is currently working on the construction of the first phase of the line 1 of the Quito Metro (Ecuador) and the East Line in Fortaleza (Brazil). Among the major tunneling work it has carried out, we would highlight the underground routing of the M-30 ring motorway in Madrid and the Legacy Way tunnel in Australia, both located inside cities, the tunnel for the particle accelerator of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) between France and Switzerland and the high-speed train accesses in Bologna (Italy).
