Colombia's National Infrastructure Agency (ANI) has announced a public audience for the Bogota South Corridor light rail PPP project.
The PPP project has been proposed by Regiotram, a private consortium with the goal of developing the LRT system in the city of Bogota. It has also proposed the Saabana - Facataiva line.
The new LRT system would link Sabana station and Soacha. The new line would have a total length of 18.1 Km and a total of 18 stations. The project is expected to be used by about 78.3 million passenger in its first year.
The public audience will be hold on 12 December 2014.
The city of Bogota is also studying the development of a tramway PPP project that would link the city with the Séptima expressway. France's Alstom and Canada's SNC Lavalin are currently conducting the feasibility studies for the project. The project will include the design, construction, operation and maintenance of the tramway. The line is 21 kilometers long and has an estimated cost of P1.3 billion (US$675 million).
