Project's description

Line 7 is a new rapid transit line due to open on the Santiago Metro, in 2028. Intended to relieve the busy Line 1, the Line 7 will start in Renca in the northwest, passing through the city center, before ending in the borders of Las Condes and Vitacura in the northeast. Expected to be finished by 2028, it will add 19 new stations and 24.8 km of track to the Santiago Metro system.

Line 7 will benefit from state-of-the-art signalling technology (CBTC – GoA 4), and all of the 19 new stations will be equipped with platform screen doors. The whole line will be electrified with a 1500 VDc-powered Overhead Contact Line (OCL) and will be fully underground.
