Design and construction of “Lo Valledor” Station, Line 6 of Santiago Subway (Chile)
Line 6 of Santiago Subway (Chile) is 15.2 km long and has 10 stations. The Project for Detailed Engineering of Shafts & Galleries for the Line 6 was awarded to the Consortium ZañartuGeocontrol in March 2012. The construction of Section I, where Lo Valledor Station is located, was awarded to the Consortium METRO 6 Ltda, constituted by SALINI IMPREGILO and the works began in March 2013. The project was carried out following the methodology called “Diseño Estructural Activo” (DEA) and the construction of the tunnel station will be built with the method known as Self Supporting Vault. In late October 2013 the access shaft was built and, also, a large part of the access gallery.
