New Medellin Metro Depot


Since its inception, the principal objective of Metro de Medellín has been to improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of the Metropolitan Area of the Aburrá Valley, by offering them an efficient and safe massive transport system. The increase in passenger demand on many Lines, as well as the forecast of growth for the future, has led to Metro de Medellín increasing its fleet of rail vehicles by 30 additional units. As a result, it is now necessary to extend the depot and maintenance facility for rolling stock.
The Municipality of Bello, to the north of Medellín, is the location of the current operative garages. The adjoining plot, in Tulio Ospina, will be the location not just for the extension, but also for commercial areas, public spaces and a new natural park.
IDOM is developing this project, combining our experience and expertise in designing Metro systems in perfect synergy with architecture, urbanism and landscaping.
