Argentina, Cordoba - ar/23


The federal Transport Secretariat is considering a proposal from Metro Cí³rdoba, a consortium of Iecsa, Ghella and Alstom, to build a 15.8 km metro network with 17 stations in the city of Cí³rdoba with private finance. Comprising two routes (north-south and east-west) with tunnels 9 m in diameter excavated with TBMs and running at a depth of 9 m below the surface, the project has been costed at USD1.1 billion. An east-west route with 11 stations would run from Avenida Patria under the Suquí­a river to reach the city centre, continuing under Olmos and Colí³n avenues to reach Duarte Quirí³s. With six stations, the proposed north-south route would run under Maipíº and Chacabuco avenues to serve the university campus in the southwest of the city. The project has been endorsed by the city of Cí³rdoba. Visit www.iecsa.com.ar and www.ghella.com 17/08.
