Bids for Bogota metro open in 2015: mayor

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Bidding to build a long-awaited $6.9 billion subway system in Bogota, Colombia's capital city, will open in the second half of 2015, the mayor said.

Successive governments in the city of around 8 million have talked about a metro for seven decades, but the project rarely advanced beyond sketching route maps.

Now the city has plans to open a first 32 km (20 mile) line serving 27 stations by 2020, mayor Gustavo Petro said.
