Project Details


The project is a three-phase plan to restore rail service between Botero, Caldas, Puerto Berrío and La Pintada. Phase I will be built between La Pintada and Caldas, phase II between Caldas and Botero and phase III between Botero and Puerto Berrío. The railway will serve to transport cargo, people and solid waste. It is expected to boost economic growth and production while, at the same time, reducing air pollution in the Aburrá valley as train service will replace some of the buses and trucks in use.
