Both Line 2 and Line 3 of the Peruvian capital will be constructed underground, as they will be serving densely populated and heavily urbanised parts of the city, according to the country’s Minister of Transport and Communications Jose Gallardo.
“Lima’s Line 3 has to be underground because the success of a train is to go through areas where the maximum demand is located,” he told.
Line 3 of the cities metro network is projected to transport the highest number of passengers per day.
“We will witness a great leap in the number of Metro system users in Lima. We will go from 300,000 users thank to Line 1, to 1 million passengers with Line 2, and afterwards to 2 million passengers with Line 3,” he told TV Peru official station.
