The east-west corridor will be conducted by Metro de LIma’s line 4, connecting also with the international airport.
Lima’s line 4 constitutes an east-west corridor, benefiting the population of at least ten districts in its area of direct influence. It will connect the district of Ate -Vitarte in the province of Lima, Jorge Chavez International Airport in Callao, specifically southwesterly along Javier Prado Avenue to La Marina Avenue, then towards the northwest on Elmer Faucett Avenue. It is estimated that the east-west underground section will be approximately 30 kilometres.
The project will be implemented via a public-private partnership and the winner will be responsible for the engineering design, financing, construction, supply of electromechanical equipment, rolling stock acquisition, operation and maintenance.
