Peru plans to build a 27.5bn-sol (US$9.8bn) railway project to connect southern Ica city and northern Piura, transport minister José Gallardo said.
Running along the Pacific coast and through Lima, the railroad will be 1,340km long. It will pass through Ancash, La Libertad and Lambayeque.
"The Tren de la Costa is a modern infrastructure project and we'll work to make it a reality," Gallardo said.
The country, which has more than doubled infrastructure investments over the last decade, ranks 90 out of 144 nations in rail infrastructure, according to the World Economic Forum.
