Line 2 of the Bogotá Metro (“L2MB” or the “Project”) will be developed in the city of Bogotá, in the districts of Chapinero, Barrios Unidos, Engativá, and Suba. The Project includes a 15.5 km subway line and 11 stations, ten of them underground and one elevated. Its route will start in the northeast of the city (72nd Street and 10th Street) and will end in the northwest area (Fontanar del Río) next to the Bogotá River, where the workshop yard will operate. The Project consists of three standard sections: i) a 14.3 km long tunnel section (92% of the route); ii) a 0.3 km long trench section (transition from tunnel to viaduct) (2% of the route); and iii) a 0.9 km long viaduct section (6% of the route).
The Project, which seeks to contribute to the economic growth and productivity of the District of Bogotá by improving public transportation, has the following specific goals: i) achieving higher levels of mobility, connectivity, safety, and comfort in transportation for the beneficiary population; ii) reducing pollutant and greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions; and iii) improving air quality in the corridor where it will operate and in its area of influence.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IDB / IDB INVEST
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IDB Invest)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IDB Invest is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
