A total of 17 stations are planned for the corridor as well as a branch line to the airport. Around 71.5mn passengers a year are expected to travel along the corridor.

Construction of the public-private partnership (PPP) project is forecast to take 36 months, with the system estimated to be operational by 2018.

The hearing will take place at the Hernán Echavarría Olózaga auditorium in Cundinamarca municipality Madrid.
