27 th July 2016 - Alstom has signed a contract worth around €200 million with Graña y Montero Ferrovias to supply 120 Metropolis cars (20 trainsets) for the line 1 of Lima Metro as well as 19 new cars to complete the existing trainsets  already in service on the same line. The delivery of the 139 Metropolis cars is scheduled to be completed by 2019.
