China-Canada alliance wins big in Bogotá

Friday, October 18, 2019


A $4 billion contract to build a metro in the Colombian capital was awarded to a consortium of China’s Harbour Engineering, Xi’an Metro and Canada’s Bombardier.

The 24-km metro, promised by city officials for decades, is considered key to taming traffic on Bogota’s congested and chaotic roadways. It is meant to complement the city’s Transmilenio system of buses, Reuters reports.
