In order to design the six stations on section C of the future Line 7 in the east of Santiago, engineering consultancy Wood is aimed to advance detailed designs.
According to the contents of this 24-month contract, Wood is due to work on architectural, structural, civil, mechanical, and electrical designs, while providing site support during the construction phase. The expert fieldwork of Wood Prior to this stage was detailed engineering for the tunnel and shafts.
Using by more than 2·5 million passengers per day, the Santiago metro is a crowded station. Hence the new Line 7 with 26 km length is designed to facilitate overcrowding on Line 1 and will link the hitherto unconnected suburban areas of Renca, Las Condes, and Vitacura to the city’s main commercial and business centers.
