Currently, the route goes from San Juan de Lurigancho to Villa El Salvador.
The Minister of Transport and Communications, Bruno Giuffra announced that Lima’s Metro Line 1 will expand from the Villa El Salvador station to the Lurín district.
“The new section will be very useful. This is because there are a large number of people working in Lurín and others who live there, who demand the public transport service,” said Giuffra in a statement to El Peruano.
Bruno Giuffra explained that the project will be executed as soon as possible and through the modality of public work. “It will be financed by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and resources from bonds.”
The holder of the MTC said that this new section of Line 1 of the Lima Metro will have a special station for the commuter train that connects Lurín with Ica.
